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...
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.
When Will I Learn - Why Shop Anywhere Else When Amazon Is Here
6 March 2014
Summary: I purchased a Sony Vaio Tap 11 from the Sony store in CA after a trip to the Microsoft store and a 45 minute drive to the Sony store with the pc in stock. I was interested in the Lenovo Helix, but was skeptical about ordering online without being able to test the pc. I returned home to NC from CA and my Sony was laggy and not working the way I needed it to. I had to drive from NC to DC to return it. When I hit $2K+ on the Lenovo website, I remembered to check Amazon.
Excerpt: The Helix is complete flexibility - full power - and light weight. It runs everything well - Windows / Office / Adobe CC apps. I have had a stylus-based tablet for years, and frequently use the stylus with the Helix. When in tablet mode, it's a great content consumption machine. In laptop mode, I have the power to create anything. My only gripe is that in Windows 8, Microsoft replaced the tablet input panel with one that is much less friendly.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Fast, Flexible, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Powerful, Quality Display, Styus, Wacom Digitizer, Windows
Summary: I have bought Thinkpads for many years, and I am a loyal customer. The product design on the Helix can't be beat. I have a real keyboard when I want it with a full, powerful laptop. I have an excellent large screen tablet with the full power of a computer. I find this product better than alternatives because of the better port options, a larger screen, full laptop capability in a tablet, and long battery life when it is docked. The only consideration is this.
