Lenovo’s ThinkPad Twist and IdeaPad Yoga are Windows 8 convertible devices. This means that both these machines can switch back and forth between ultrabook/laptop and tablet forms.

The ThinkPad Twist uses a different design from the IdeaPad Yoga to switch forms. Its screen rotates as opposed to flips. Note that the Twist only swivels in one direction.

If you’re deciding between one of these two Windows 8 hybrid devices, know that the ThinkPad line of products is oriented for the business-consumer segment.

The Twist is a business laptop. It’s for People Who Get Things Done, and People Who Know Things, and Very Important People. So Lenovo crammed the kitchen sink into the laptop’s sides, offering as large a port selection as I’ve seen on an ultrabook. You get a SIM card slot (for adding mobile data to your Twist), a full-size SD card reader, Gigabit Ethernet, two USB 3.0 ports, a mini HDMI port, a MiniDisplay Port, and a headphone jack — it’s a tough list to beat on any device this size.
