Get ready to twist and shout for this new giveaway! Our generous friends from Lenovo are dishing out a ThinkPad Twist laptop ($849 value) to one lucky FatWallet member. If you think this product sounds familiar, then you are correct. Lenovo spoiled us back in November, and it was apart of our Thanksgiving Giveaway. We’ve suited up for round two and are ready to push out this brand-spanking new laptop to our FatWallet audience!
Before we dive into the details, we must explain this computer. This isn’t your average, everyday laptop. This innovative ultrabook twists, bends, folds, spins, splits, transforms, stimulates, and everything in between. Stemming from a large family of convertibles, the Lenovo Twist merges standard keyboard technology with flexible hinges to transform into four different working modes:
- Laptop Mode: the classic mode
- Stand Mode: the space-saver mode
- Tent Mode: the easel-like mode
- Tablet Mode: the on the go mode
It is also the most business-focused of all the new convertibles. The laptop mode makes business processes easy, like word processing, editing videos, or managing complex spreadsheets. With a quick change to stand or tent mode, the Twist is perfect for multimedia presentations—whether in the boardroom or coffee shop. It’s also great for those that often travel for work, and have to get work done on flights. If you are like me, and enjoy just surfing the web, or catching up on a juicy book – then the tablet mode is right up your alley. It’s convenient when you need to access something fast, and the tablet doesn’t gobble up too much space like a traditional laptop does.
Some of the technical aspects of this handy item includes: Intel Core i3-3217U Processor (3M Cache, 1.80 GHz), Windows 8 Operating System, 12.5″ W HD LED Backlight Display, 320GB Hard Disk Drive, 6 Hour Battery Life, Speedy 3.0 USB, 3.5 lbs.
I am highly jealous for whoever gets to score this awesome, techie prize! Buying a new laptop can really take a slash at your bank account, and it’s not fun dealing with a slow, ancient one either. My Toshiba laptop has seen its last days, and is now resting comfortably on a book shelf at home. Instead of coughing up the dough to buy a new one, I’m just relying on my tablet or husband’s laptop. However, I do have my eyes on these Lenovo convertibles. Santa, are you listening?
