Lenovo ThinkPad Twist lands for Php56k

Lenovo’s other line of ultrabook comes in a twisted form factor and calls it the ThinkPad Twist. The mechanism is very similar to the laptop-tablet hybrid we’ve seen from many years ago.

The ThinkPad Twist has an odd 12.5-inch display and looks like a regular ultrabook but comes with a hinge that allows you to twist the screen around and close the lid down to position it in a tablet form.

Lenovo ThinkPad Edge S230u specs:
12.5″ HD IPS multi-touch display with Gorilla Glass
Intel Core i5 3317U, up to 2.6GHz
Intel HD Graphics 4000
4GB DDR3 RAM
500GB HDD + 24GB mSATA
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Gigabit LAN
Bluetooth 4.0
4-cell Li-Ion battery
Windows 8

Lenovo promises up to 7 hours of battery life on a single charge with the ThinkPad Twist.

The specs are pretty decent but with a retail price of Php56,000, we’re expecting they should have just used a full SSD storage instead.

  3. Binasa mo ba yung article o tinignan man lang yung picture? Hindi ito detachable. Kaya nga may “TWIST” sa pangalan ng laptop. Ibig sabihin, can be twisted ang display to use it as a tablet. Kung detachable yan edi sana ang pangalan, “Thinkpad DETACH”. Basa-basa at tingin-tingin rin. Di yung makapagmagaling lang.
