Lenovo ThinkPad Helix Tablet/Ultrabook Hybrid Review

techbargains.com
17 April 2014
  • Summary: The Lenovo ThinkPad Helix is a radical new device that Lenovo hopes will be appealing to people looking for the portability and simplicity of a tablet, combined with the productive power and specs of an Ultrabook. And while the Helix is definitely something new and exciting, it just doesn't function quite as well as a traditional Ultrabook. At the end of the day, it's still just a supercharged tablet with a detachable keyboard dock.
  • Pros: Versatility and Portability:, Quality and Quantity of Control Options:, Long Battery Life:, Fast Start-Up:
  • Cons: Small Screen, High Resolution:, Unusually High Temperatures:, Limited I/O Ports:, Several Design Flaws:

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix Convertible Ultrabook

CNET
28 September 2013
  • Summary: Even with the best detachable-screen hybrid hinge we've seen, the older CPU and high price make the ThinkPad Helix a hybrid for a select audience only.
  • Pros: The Lenovo ThinkPad Helix is a solidly built laptop-tablet hybrid with all the security features your IT department needs. Thanks to dual batteries in the tablet and keyboard base, it can run for a full workday.
  • Cons: The Helix is stuck with Intel's less efficient previous generation of CPUs, making it feel especially expensive.

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix Review

Digitaltrends
29 June 2013
  • Conclusion: With the Helix, Lenovo delivers perhaps the best-designed and versatile Windows 8 convertible we’ve seen yet. Thanks to an excellent keyboard and a well-executed touchpad, it works great as a laptop. It’s a bit hefty as a tablet, but the 1080p IPS screen looks good. With the included stylus, many people will appreciate pen input.
  • Pros: Remarkably versatile design, Great ThinkPad keyboard, Comfortable touchpad, Long battery life with keyboard dock
  • Cons: Heavy, Tablet alone has short battery life, Tablet gets hot under heavy load, Limited port selection: No VGA port or SD card slot, Keyboard not backlit

Review Lenovo ThinkPad Helix 3G Convertible

Notebookcheck
27 June 2013
  • Summary: Unlimited mobility. A tablet for the meeting, a notebook for the workspace - Lenovo's ThinkPad Helix is supposed to combine the advantages of both devices. The clever ultrabook hybrid ignores conventional wisdom concerning convertibles, leaving a lasting impression due to its mobility and office strengths.
  • Pros: Excellent build quality, Versatile, Great Full HD display, Long battery life, Low noise emissions, Good application performance, Integrated UMTS modem, It's all about flexibility: The ThinkPad Helix is perfectly capable of replacing both a tablet and an ultrabook whenever one or the other is required. Thanks to its excellent input devices and low noise emissions, the convertible is also a full-fledged office computer.
  • Cons: Very hot under full load, Just 4 GB of RAM, Limited expandability, High price, Despite of Lenovo's intricate cooling system, the tablet runs uncomfortably hot under full load. We hope for a speedy update to the less power-hungry Haswell chip - including an increase in graphics performance.

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix Review

LAPTOP Magazine
21 June 2013
  • Summary: With a gorgeous display, above-average performance and long battery life, the Lenovo ThinkPad Helix is a solid choice Windows 8 notebook-tablet hybrid for business users. This being Lenovo, the Helix also has one of the best keyboards we've used in a tablet hybrid. We just wish the tablet portion of this convertible ran cooler and that Lenovo included a memory card slot.

  • Summary: Lenovo's ThinkPad Helix is a strong rival for Microsoft's Surface Pro, and can successfully be used as either a tablet or laptop. However, in laptop mode it is rather heavy for an ultrabook, while the system is also pricey. Enterprise buyers will find plenty to like in this device, which is well suited for Windows 8.
  • Pros: Can be used as tablet or touch-enabled laptop, long battery life, good security features, high quality build
  • Cons: Relatively heavy, expensive, few I/O ports, integrated battery in both tablet and keyboard dock
