ThinkPad Twist and WiDi

2012-11-13, 22:14 PM

Can anyone confirm if I purhcase the Twist with i7, Intel HD 4000 and Intel Centrino 2200 BGN WiFi (Not the Lenovo ABGN), I'll be able to use WiDi?

No where in the specs do they mention WiDi at all.

HI

I can confirm... I bought a Lenovo Twist 2 weeks ago and Wireless Display (WiDi) is working. I hope, this is still interesting for you ;-)

best regards, Schniedel

By the way the Yoga 13 IS NOT WiDi compatible as it has a RealTek WiFi card.

 Would like to know the answer as well. Be aware that the only difference between the i5 and i7 in this machine

is 200mhz.

Hi vttech,

 

According to the information in the link provided by Fuzzyreets and information in Lenovo's Personal Systems Reference, Widi should work with the Twist.

Thanks for the replies. I'm more interested in hearing back from someone who actually owns a Twist and a WiDi adapter and has tried this. Also would be curious as to which brand of WiDi adapter is being used and how well it works.

Thanks for the feedback. Do you mind sharing which brand and model of WiDi receiver you're using?
