ThinkPad Twist – A Natural Win8 Ultrabook Convertible

First came the IdeaPad Yoga 13. Now comes the ThinkPad Twist. Both are Windows 8 Ultrabook Convertibles. One caters to mainstream everyday computer users. The other to productivity-oriented corporate professionals. Check out this review on the ThinkPad Twist. One major difference between the Yoga and the Twist is the hinge used to switch the devices between laptop and tablet modes.

After hearing about the Yoga a few months back, I was intrigued by the form factor and the entire concept of a convertible ultrabook. The Thinkpad Twist executes this concept very well. The mid-tier sample that we reviewed contained a processor and memory configuration more than adequate to the task at hand. Its light and easy to carry around at a mere 3.5 pounds, and has a solid feel to it because of the magnesium material used in the design. I was worried about the hinge mechanism, but found it to be well designed and solidly constructed. The display that Lenovo used in designing the Twist is hands-down one of the best displays I seen yet. As for the Windows 8 experience, I can’t imagine using Windows 8 without this device. The Thinkpad Twist was made for Windows 8 and give the user an unrivaled experience. I found myself using the keyboard and mouse in conjunction with the touch screen as if it was second nature.

Satellite P845-S4200 – A Good Value Laptop

Toshiba has one of the largest selections of laptops and ultrabooks available. You’ll find systems that fit pretty much every user computing demographic there is. What the Satellite P840 Series offers is premium performance and design fit into a 14″ form factor. Priced very reasonably, Satellite laptops have great appeal to the mainstream consumer masses.

In an age of increasingly svelte laptops, the Toshiba Satellite P845-S4200 ($671.50 direct) stands out for what it is and what it isn’t: simply put, it’s a laptop, and not one that concerns itself with donning the coveted “ultrabook” title. For users who value affordability but don’t want a bare-bones system stripped entirely of features, it’s a solid Windows 7-equipped budget laptop whose shortcomings—a so-so keyboard and buckets of bloatware, mainly—are tempered by its low price tag.

ThinkPad T430s And T430u Differences

Lenovo’s ThinkPad T Series includes some of the company’s thinnest and lightest business-class laptops. Two popular models are the ThinkPad T430s and the ThinkPad T430u. While these two systems look alike in appearance, they are far from it once you take a closer look at the enclosure used and the specs inside. From the composite used to the components that power both machines, you’ll see that the each ThinkPad was engineered for a specific type of user.

ThinkPad ThinkPad T430u is very thin, much thinner than the Thinkpad T430s and slightly thinner than the ThinkPad X1, but marginally thicker than the ThinkPad X1 Carbon. ThinkPad X1 Carbon and ThinkPad T430u are both considered Ultrabook class laptops, so they must meet the following specification set out by Intel for ultrabooks released after June of 2012.
