Review Lenovo ThinkPad Helix 3G Convertible

 

Unlimited mobility. A tablet for the meeting, a notebook for the

Excellent build quality; Versatile; Great Full HD display; Long battery life; Low noise emissions; Good application performance; Integrated UMTS modem

Very hot under full load; Just 4 GB of RAM; Limited expandability; High price

Those who are unhappy with the limited expandability of the Helix may want to have a look at some conventional convertibles such as the ThinkPad X230T or the Fujitsu Lifebook T902. Consumers (instead of business customers) might find the Microsoft...

Double the Trouble

 

Like it or not, tablets are the future. Lenovo's latest, the ThinkPad Helix , is not likely to be a part of it. Here's why. Following on a string of successes with convertible PC designs — including the swell IdeaPad Yoga — Lenovo has now taken aim at...

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix review: A versatile but expensive Ultrabook/tablet hybrid

 

The pleasingly versatile ThinkPad Helix can instantly switch from a full-blown Ultrabook to a Windows 8 tablet. But you'll have to pay to play.

Can operate as a touchscreen notebook or a Windows 8 tablet ; Solid-state drive speeds up frequently performed operations ; Dual-battery arrangement delivers up to 6.5 hours of battery life

Subpar audio ; High-res screen can make small type difficult to read ; Pricey considering its 11.6-inch display

The ThinkPad Helix deserves kudos for its innovative design, and a business user in search of a laptop-tablet convertible with good performance might find the high price tag palatable. (And if money is no object, you can upgrade to a faster processor,...

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix

 

One of the better detachable hybrid tablets on the market, the Lenovo ThinkPad Helix gives the corporate IT buyer a great option for their highly mobile workforce.

Detachable screen gives users extra portability when needed. Decent battery life with keyboard dock. Innovative, sturdy hinge and docking connector. Dual pointing devices plus touch screen. Comes with stylus and onboard stylus storage. Keyboard dock...

Some fan noise. Tablet has only USB 2.0 port. Hinge is locked when tablet out of dock. Pricey.

At over $1,600, you will have to pay for the level of innovation and performance found in the Lenovo ThinkPad Helix. Though dear for a run of the mill consumer, this isn't out of line for the corporate or SMB buyer that is the target audience of this...

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix review

 

The Helix is the most innovative Windows 8 tablet hybrid yet, with dual batteries, a bright display and a comfy keyboard to match. Still, it's expensive, especially considering it ships with last-gen CPUs.

Long battery life ; Inventive, versatile form factor ; Sturdy, comfortable keyboard ; Bright display with great viewing angles

Some awkward design elements ; Expensive considering the last-gen components

Even six months after it was originally announced, the ThinkPad Helix is the most innovative Windows 8 tablet hybrid we can think of. In a way, though, "innovative" is a backhanded compliment, at least in this case where the design is somewhat awkward....

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix Review

 

Lenovo has big plans with Windows 8, convertible laptops and Ultrabooks, and more but one that caught our eye at CES was the ThinkPad Helix. With a fancy design, versatility, and an 11.6-inch 1080p display it's quite the device. After a few delays the...

If you’ve been eying something like the Surface Pro, the Helix is a much better choice. It delivers tons of options, better battery life, and a keyboard that is actually useful in a way that you’ll feel comfortable. The ThinkPad Helix really does a lot...

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix review

 

The Helix is a well-made but expensive product that presents an interesting question. While there very well may be a market for an 11-inch hybrid with an emphasis on business and security features and a body leaning toward the industrial, rugged side,...

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.

The Helix is stuck with Intel's less efficient previous generation of CPUs, making it feel especially expensive.

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.

Solid performance as both tablet and laptop ; Great battery life ; Great keyboard

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix Review

 

Lenovo's ThinkPad Helix offers a versatile convertible design, full HD touch screen and impressive battery life, but costs a pretty penny.

Easy to convert from notebook to tablet mode; Long battery life; Gorgeous 1080p display ; Excellent keyboard

Expensive; Runs hot; Volume buttons too recessed

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix (2015) Review and Ratings

 

It's pricier and slower than competing laptop/tablet detachables, but Lenovo's second-generation ThinkPad Helix still makes a compelling case for itself with its all-day battery life and superlative keyboard.

Best-in-class keyboard ; All-day battery life in laptop mode ; Quiet operation

Disappointing performance ; Expensive

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a...
