Lenovo has launched the ThinkPad Twist as a unique version of a Windows 8 Computer for those who really need a flexible form factor.
The really different thing with this unit is the ability to turn the screen to multiple positions including collapsing it on top of the built in key board to use it in a tablet mode. The keyboard is a spill proof unit and makes it easy to do most actions where a keyboard is going to be needed. Multi touch capability permits the screen to be used interactively as well as with keyboard commands.
The ThinkPad Twist is not a true tablet as it runs the Windows 8 Professional 64 software not the tablet based Windows 8 RT. It does however offer many of the tablet types of functionality in a powerful computer package.
