Summary: I have had this computer for almost a year, and I have to tell you that I am not been happy with the purchase. This computer looks slick. However for its price it is a major disappointment, and compared with earlier Lenovo tablets (X200) is a let down. The device has some design problems.
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.
Summary: The Helix definitely works. Great keyboard, nice slim computer, good materials... You pay for a premium computer. Here is the good and the bad: + I love the keyboard. Great! + small + solid + high resolution + the tablet hardware works fine - taking it off an on.
Summary: I've had this computer for ten months now, and I really wanted to love it when I first got it. Seemed the perfect form factor -- large, detachable tablet, with a stellar ThinkPad keyboard. Heavy, yes, but with a Core i7 and an extra battery, I could see why. Unfortunately...
Summary: Something is wrong because the computer locks up and goes dead. It is that the computer becomes unresponsive to any input. The only solution is to stick small wire into reset hole to cause reboot. And often computer says there is no network hardware so can't connect to internet.
Summary: Positives: 1. The particular approach of building a Win8 tablet/laptop combo is great (but execution is terrible) 2. The claimed 10-hour total battery life (but real-life experience isn't that) 3. HD Screen (but, as a minor point, text is not easy to read sometimes) Negatives: 1.
Summary: I have been using my Lenovo ThinkPad i7 Helix for 5 months now, I believe I was one of the first to get one when it went into production. The pros: 1. The design - a fast processor laptop with a detachable touch screen is a great idea. Lenovo should get credit for that. 2.
Summary: - Frequent requests for buying additional software (for PDF, backup's etc) - Spacebar key (left side ok, right side or center needed extra push) - The helix has two batteries: keyboard dock and tablet. The tablet one stopped being recognized by the OS after a week.
Summary: The bad side: it's top-heavy (tips over easily), a little glitchy, freezes briefly as if it was still using a hard drive, periodic crashes when I pop screen from keyboard. Definitely need external monitor, keyboard and mouse with this for intensive use, so add that to the already high price.
