Manufacturer’s Description

The 12.5" Twist convertible is an Ultrabook, a tablet, a notebook, and more. Twist transforms into a laptop when you need to type, a tablet when you're on the go, and a stand when you want to share presentations. When you're ready to browse, bend it backward into a tent† for a close-up view.
