    ThinkPad Twist FeaturesFeatures

    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.

    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.
