I just purchased a ThinkPad Twist, which is one of Lenovo's new convertible Ultrabook offerings (as I'm sure you know). I know that MobileTechReview has not reviewed the Twist yet, but I wanted to ask two questions about specific components of the product that you probably know more about than I would given your experience with ThinkPads and Ultrabooks.
First Question: The Twist has a swivel hinge that seems to have been used on previous ThinkPad models (i.e. the X230T) - Do you know if that hinge is generally reliable?
Second Question: Occasionally, I play some lower-end computer games such as Left 4 Dead 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Call of Duty: Black Ops. The Twist I ordered has the Intel Core i7-3517U Processor, Intel HD Graphics 4000 and 8 GB of RAM - In your experience, will those sorts of games play well on these new Ultrabook processors?
Thank you in advance for providing me with some input on the Twist. I really enjoy the reviews this site posts and will be sure to reference it before I make future purchases!
