Summary: first i like the device and its build quality. my only gripe is windows 8 and 8.1 so i downgraded/upgraded to windows 7 sacrificing multy touch so i can have all the drivers working including lenovos battery controller and wifi monitor, intels advanced driver features, and having my wacom drivers be more stable.
Summary: still new too soon for 5 star love. A few glitches, might be W8 start button on desktop; no love for the worthless mousepad . insanely hard to rclick. Click hold down while dragging with 2d finger sucks. Mouse moves when clicking mousepad. ok. Otherwise this laptop pleases me. once I got used to the small screen. I don't have to choose which program to run, I can run multiple activities, music, a game with 3D graphics, WE, eg simultaneously.
Summary: Fan way too loud and system runs fairly hot. Not exactly my ideal combo system. I quickly went back to my X1 Carbon because of the quieter fan and approximately comparable weight. For the cost of the system, the Microsoft Surfaces are easily better alternatives. Sorry Lenovo. :( I typically love your products, but this one just didn't do it for me.
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).
Summary: but thin. OK, well, thinner than a lot of Lenovo products. I'm glad to see Lenovo improving on this point. I don't have an issue with holding down the keyboard when I open it. I'm just glad it stays shut without clasps, magnets, clips, springs, hooks, and doesn't weigh twice as much as a lappy than it does as a tablet. It's fast. It has NFC. I use it. The stylus has a silo. There are two kinds of people in the world, pen collectors and pen suppliers.
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.
