Lenovo puts a new "twist" on laptop hybrids with the mocha black ThinkPad Twist 12.5" i7-3517U SSD Multi-Touch Ultrabook. The display on these laptops can twist into three configurations - a tablet, a notebook and presentation device.

This hybrid computer is powered by a 1.9GHz Intel Core i7-3517U Processor. It also contains 8GB of PC3-10600 1333 MHz DDR3 RAM and a 128 GB SSD.

The 12.5" HD IPS LED backlit capacitive touchscreen is not only encased in high-tensile Corning Gorilla Glass, it also features a native resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and supports five-point multitouch. Optimized for Windows 8 touch support, the screen also supports an HD webcam.

Integrated speakers use Dolby Home Theater v4 codecs, and this Ultrabook also includes mini DisplayPort and HDMI connectivity, USB 3.0 and a 4-in-1 card reader with SD, SDHC, SDXC and MMC support.

The unit runs the Windows 8 operating system, which offers additional benefits like the live-tile start screen and customizable themes.
