Lenovo isn’t resting on their success of the Yoga. They’ve just introduced a new Windows 8 powered convertible mini-ultrabook. The Helix is a full laptop, but it’s also a fully functional tablet. All he traditional computing parts are stashed away in side the screen half of the Helix. So you can take the screen and leave the keyboard dock without leaving anything behind. When docked, the keyboard also offers an extended battery, to help make sure you have enough power.
But the Helix is more than just a tablet with a keyboard dock. Perhaps you don’t want to leave that keyboard behind, but need the easy tablet style operation without a keyboard getting in your way. No problem – the Helix has you covered. You can flip the screen around and then dock it into the keyboard, and fold it down. Providing you full access to the screen just like you would expect, but with the keyboard hidden away underneath.
If that wasn’t enough coolness, the Helix also has built-in LTE and NFC along with all the traditional USB and HDMI ports you would expect. Powered by a 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor, 11.6 inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and support for stylus input, up to 256GB SSD storage, and 4GB of memory.
As you would expect, pricing and availability have not ben shared at this time.
