The IBM ThinkPad T43 delivers similar performance but lesser battery life than the identically designed ThinkPad T42; we think the latter remains the better buy.
With a relatively affordable starting price and a new design, the ThinkPad Edge loosens up the ThinkPad look--but losing an optical drive keeps it a yard short of being a top-choice compact business laptop.
Lenovo's thin 13-inch ThinkPad X1 is high on design and full of sleek features, including a backlit keyboard.
The ThinkPad T60 delivers a sturdy design, a complete range of network connectivity, top-shelf performance, long battery life, and just enough ports for the typical business user.
With a built-in display color calibrator and integrated Wacom tablet, the monstrous ThinkPad W700 workstation means serious business for graphic designers.
Balancing between ultraportable and full-size laptop, the 12-inch ThinkPad Edge E220s offers an exceedingly compact computing experience matched with an upscale design, marred only by a sub-par battery life.
Lenovo's laptop-tablet Windows 8 hybrid takes a simple approach, but is a clever hinge enough?

Lenovo ThinkPad Twist Review
The good: The ThinkPad Twist has great Lenovo construction, a responsive touch screen, and a center hinge for flipping into tablet mode, all for a very reasonable price.
The bad: The screen accelerometer can have a mind of its own, flipping into portrait view randomly. Battery life is merely OK, and the screen resolution is low for a modern laptop/tablet convertible.
The bottom line: Slightly less conservative-feeling than the average ThinkPad, the well-made ThinkPad Twist offers one of the better tablet modes from the first wave of Windows 8 convertibles.
