ThinkPad Twist – Twist Back Into Action

The ThinkPad Twist is one of many interesting Windows 8 hybrid convertibles to have recently come out. It uses the “old school” way of turning a conventional laptop into a tablet, by a twisting motion, similar to what you see in the Lenovo ThinkPad X230 Tablet.

If you’re looking for a business ultrabook computing solution look to the ThinkPad Twist. If you need something with a bit more power, the ThinkPad X230 Tablet might be more suitable. The IdeaPad Yoga 13 or Yoga 11 is good if you’re more of a mainstream computer user.

When it comes to the actual twisting bit, the dual-hinge works one way: you rotate the screen clockwise to flip it around into tablet mode (it simply won’t budge if you try and push it the other way). The hinge itself feels sturdy, though we noticed that once we were in tablet mode the accelerometer was a bit slow to detect changes in orientation. Thankfully, it figured it out most of the time, though we consistently had trouble moving from portrait mode to using the machine as a clamshell laptop; we often had to fiddle with it in order to get the desktop upright again.

ThinkPad Tablet 2 Coming in December

Those waiting for Lenovo’s ThinkPad Tablet 2 will have to wait just a little bit longer. Originally scheduled to be released in October, then delayed until November, is finally expected to debut in December. This device targets the business consumer segment. Lenovo’s IdeaPad Yoga 11 is a similar device excepted designed for the mainstream consumer segment.

When the ThinkPad Tablet 2 comes out, there should be a good amount of interest. One new highlight for the this device is the switch in processor specification from the first generation.

The ThinkPad Tablet 2 succeeds the original ThinkPad Tablet, which was based on Google’s Android 3.1 OS and an ARM processor. With the new tablet, Lenovo has adopted Windows and a chip from Intel, a combination that dominates PCs but is not yet established in tablets. The dual-core Intel Atom chip, code-named Clover Trail, has a clock speed of 1.86GHz

Holiday Keyboard Skins For VAIO Laptop/Desktops

Stumbled across this fun article. Sony is offering a handful of unique keyboard skins for customers in Japan. These skins fit on select VAIO laptops and on the VAIO Tab 20 mobile desktop. Available only in Japan and for this holiday season, customers can order them online off the Sony Japan Online Store. Here’s hoping that Sony will soon be offering this selection to customers in the United States as well.

Set in a bold shade of red, the heart keyboard skin consists of two large white hearts surrounded in a flurry of snowflakes. A series of blue hues adorn the moon keyboard cover, which features a sophisticated font, big city skyline, and Santa with his reindeer flying overhead. The party keyboard cover incorporates a variety of festive decorations and accents, as well as a bold font for the letters (except for the word party).
