Lenovo ThinkPad Helix convertible : The Chinese Manufacturer Lenovo has just added another new addition to its Thinkpad lineup follow upping the 27 Inch Horizon Tablet PC announcement, the Thinkpad Helix.
The Thinkpad Helix is a flippable 11.6-inch Ultrabook that works similar to the famous ThinkPad Yoga. But the quirky thing about Lenovo’s ThinkPad Helix is, it can serve as a standalone tablet, an Ultrabook or a presentation station, thanks to the reversible docking port. Lenovo called this cool feature as “rip and flip” touchscreen, making it ideal for watching movies when you’re in a cramped airplane seat.
The Helix offers a 1080p Gorilla Glass display with in-plane switching technology for vibrancy and good viewing angles. Under the hood, the machine is powered by a Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. Other specs include a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-MP front-facing shooter, NFC connectivity and baked-in LTE. Lenovo estimates the tablet itself will get 5 hours of battery life while the the keyboard dock adds another 5 hours, giving the total battery life of the device will reach up to 10 hours. The device is light and portable, which weighs 3.7 pounds with the keyboard attached. But just the tablet itself, it weighs 1.8-pounds, which is heavier than smaller devices like the 1.5 pound iPad.
Everything sounds good up until the price, Helix will go on sale in late February for $1,499. But as a nice product, you have to expect it to come with expensive price tag.
