Review Lenovo ThinkPad Twist Convertible Ultrabook
« on: December 13, 2012, 05:28:11 »
Windows 8 with a twist. Lenovo’s unique ThinkPad Twist adopts the x-series’ design of a swivel-mounted screen alongside all the obligatory ThinkPad traits. But can it fulfill its intended role as a practical next-gen alternative to a conventional business notebook?

As one of the audio production geeks who cares about DPC latency--it's worth noting that DPC Latency Checker does not accurately reflect DPC latency on Windows 8 and behaves as if there is an additional 1ms lag--see  http://www.thesycon.de/deu/latency_check.shtml

That said I appreciate how your site actually DOES show DPC latency info. I hope Thesycon updates their tool soon.

Interesting--thanks for the heads-up!  I will be sure to note this in future reviews.

Glad you like our reviews.  We put a ton of time and effort into each one, and I personally have long relied on our site for my primary source of notebook quality assessments--long before I ever became an editor here!

Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas, and thanks for reading! :)

I bought this device in '12 the month it came out. I have had nothing but problems with it. I own 5 different devices and do all of my own tech work and repairs, but this device, after updating the OS to 8 then 8.1, adding a SSD, updating all of the Lenovo drivers constantly, etc, etc, it is STILL the most unreliable device I have had in years. Perhaps mine is just a lemon, but it's one problem after another. Icons disappear. The screen orientation has a life of its own. Bluetooth never works consistently. The mouse pad is inconsistent at best. Packed with bloatware. I will never buy another Lenovo.

very bad quality computer. I regret I purchased it at retail store. Battery is not charging fully-50 percent. the screen is small and battery life is about one hour on high brightness. I cant even sell it, nobody likes or respects Lenovo brand in my country-Asus, Sony and Apple are. I would never recommend anyone to buy Lenovo brand to anyone-its a waste of money unless you buy the premium-the most expensive one. I owned Asus and never had hardware or software problems. thinks twice before you buy it for personal use- for office use its ok.
