ThinkPad Twist (3347-2HU) ThinkPad Twist (3347-2HU)i5-3317U(1.7GHz), 4GB RAM, 500GB 7200rpm HD+24GB Micro Solid State Drive, 12.5in 1366×768 LCD, Intel HD Graphics, 802.11abgn wireless, Bluetooth, UltraNav, Secure Chip, Camera, 8c Li-Poly, Win8 Pro 64(added info 4/13/2013: First things first,ditch Norton Internet Security. It slows down the twist! But it will put up a fight. After you select it and click “Uninstall”, it will make two last ditch efforts to stay installed. Don’t fall for it. Under the screen “Select your Uninstall Preference”, click the second option: “Please remove all user data.” I had to try several times before I figured out the fake out.)It’s sleek looking, light weight considering it is a tablet and a laptop combined. If only it could switch back and forth from Windows 8 Pro to Android. It is fast, loads some sites faster than my Note.

Fantastic value I’ve had this for a month now, and although having Windows 8 and a touch screen on a laptop take some getting used to, I really like this laptop / tablet combination. The laptop isn’t as good as my X1 Carbon ($1849) and the tablet isn’t as good as my 64GB iPad ($799), but considering that the Twist costs only a little bit more than one third as much as the two combined, I’d say the Twist is a screaming good deal.Here’s my opinion of the pros: – Touch screen – Doubles as tablet AND ultrabook (.8″ thin and 3.5 lbs light) – Legendary ThinkPad quality – Best-of-breed spill-resistant keyboard – Shock-proofing – Mil-spec durability – Steel hinges – TrackPoint pointing device(mouse substitute) – Great prices on enhanced warranty options (3-year extension, accidental damage protection, battery replacement, and on-site service plans are all quite reasonable) – Has excellent ports (2 USB3.0, Gb Ethernet, mini-DisplayPort,…

Almost perfect for me after tweaks. My best laptop ever! This is not an excellent machine out of the box and almost makes me pretty frustrates at the beginning. However, after tune ups, it works almost perfect.Overall, it is an ultrabook with no compromise and with not much more dollars i spent, it also supports touch for your desktop apps and also serves as a tablet. What’s more, it is also powerful enough to use it for work. The TWIST mode made it very flexible to use in any scenario. My favorite mode is display mode when use it in bed. With the keyboard supporting the laptop, the screen is like a tablet in front of you without the need to hold it. Plus the angle can be easily adjusted.I love the keyboard, trackpad (although still not as good as apple’s but can be fixed by driver update), screen ,touch, powerful, and most importantly the various form factors i can twist it into.Tweaks i did to solve the problems i had oob.1) touch pad: i need to change the touch sensitivity to make it follow the…
