In Pictures: 15 hot Windows 8 hybrid notebooks and tablets
Microsoft's Windows 8 launch on October 26 is nearly here, and new device announcements are coming so fast you need a scorecard to keep up. One of the big themes with this touch-centric Windows release is touchscreens on everything including Ultrabooks, tablets with keyboard docks, or new all-in-one convertible PCs. Some critics aren't buying the hybrid device craze that Windows 8 is inspiring, but if you ever wanted to a touch-enabled laptop, there's never been a better time to buy.
Based on the ThinkPad design, the Twist features a 12.5-inch display, Intel Ivy Bridge Core processors, your choice of HDD or SSD storage, USB 3.0, min DisplayPort, and mini HDMI. The device weighs 3.48 pounds and is 0.78-inches thick. The Twist also features a ThinkPad-style keyboard similar to the X220 or X230, but appears to be a little flatter to allow the screen to twist and fold over.
