Summary: I waited several months to review my Helix and although I haven't used it extensively I feel I've used it enough to be able to review it. I purchased it based on the numerous Amazon reviews from users with more advanced computer usage experience than I have that purchased it and use it for more advanced purposes than I do.
Summary: So far the best tablet laptop in the market. Only problem is the following: 1.) no LAN Connector 2.) video port is a mini display port where you need to have an adaptor to match HDMI ports and VGA video ports. 3.) I have problem with Bluetooth devices, when you wake the system up or sometimes it is just greyed out. You have to reboot the system. 4.) USB device on the Keyboard tends to malfunction and not respond (especially mouse and ext keyboards).
Great concept, inadequate delivery and absolutely horrible support.

Summary: Have had this computer for about 7 months. Originally bought this to use as a digital notebook and digital reader with the ability to annotate pdf files, ie research papers in pdf. Have had multiple issues with this computer: 1. Build is not very sturdy, with stylus in the silo the left side lifts up and starts creaking with handling. Notices several chips in the plastic within the first 3-4 months despite handling it like a new born child. 2.
Summary: Regarding the seller: i live in saudi arabia and received the product 3 days after purchase. Really amazed. Many thanks for the quick service. Regarding the product:yes the product over-heats (a lot) when you first use it. However, once all updates are done, the product hardly ever heats up (with the exception when its charging, but acceptable heat like most tablets) One thing I did not like is that the seller should mention that the docking station is an older version...
Summary: This product has met my expectations. I needed a portable machine that could be a tablet (replacing a somewhat too slow Slate computer and an laptop with one machine). I needed a processor that could handle two to three demanding applications at the same time (mostly translation memory software and voice recognition). Most 2-in-1s do not meet this need.I purchased the better model with the dual core i7 with 2.0 GHz base frequency and 3.2 GHz turbo.
Summary: The computer itself is very good. Very fast processor, plenty of RAM, very snappy. The touch screen works very well. And the battery life is great, for a Windows 8 device, probably the best of any of the Win8 devices on the market right now, with the exception of the Surface 2 Pro with Power Cover. But the keyboard and mouse devices are a little annoying.
Very good device that can bring to you a tablet and PC experience,

Summary: Very good device that can bring to you a tablet and PC experience, The Battery is very good as a tablet and PC. The screen ration is not ideal for a tablet but good for a PC. The mouse buttons are very bad and almost useless, It is easier use you fingers in the screen. It is not a perfect device but works fine if you think that you are carrying just one instead two. The only think that you can tell that is a bad design is the mouse buttons.
