ThinkPad Twist  Features

Multitouch Display
The latest in touch technology delivers effortless usability, featuring an extra bright 350 nit, HD IPS (in-plane switching) display for nearly 180-degree viewing angles.
Battery Life
Up to 6 hours.
Magnesium Alloy Construction With Corning® Gorilla® Glass
Slim Ultrabook design, built for durability yet only 20 mm thin.
ThinkVantage Active Protection System (APS)
An accelerometer detects movement and stops the drive when a fall or similar event is detected. Rubber mounts are used for the hard disk drive (rather than rails) and the HDD connector is not rigidly attached to the board, so the connector absorbs shock and impact and protects against system damage.
SuperSpeed USB 3.0
Enables up to 10 times faster file transfer, allowing for lightning-fast copying of large media files, as well as seamless connections between audio- and video-related peripherals.
Lenovo Solutions for Small Business
Built on the Intel® Small Business Advantage platform and include unique security and productivity features to keep your small-to-mid-sized business up and running: after-hours maintenance, software monitoring, USB blocker, energy savings, and the ability to backup and restore applications.
Dolby® Home Theater® v4
Increased audio clarity and maximized volume output without distortion — enjoy a crisp, clear immersive surround sound experience over built-in stereo speakers. Plus mini DisplayPort and mini HDMI enable quick and easy hook up to external monitor, TV, or projector.
Superior Web Conferencing
Low-light sensitive 720p HD webcam with wide-angle viewing and face-tracking, dual array microphones with configurations for crystal-clear private and conference mode VoIP meetings, and keyboard noise suppression technology.
Lenovo Cloud Storage
Protect your critical data, while also making access to information and file-sharing quick and convenient. Automatically back-up and synchronize data across the organization, while enabling access from multiple devices. Data is encrypted on transfer for an extra level of security.
Lenovo and Windows 8
Interact: touch, type, or click. Connect: anywhere, anytime. Discover: new uses & a world of apps.
