Lenovo ThinkPad Helix 2nd Gen

 

Lenovo's ThinkPad Helix 2nd Gen detachable-hybrid laptop is a big improvement over the original, but it still faces stiff competition.

Detachable, multimode design. 10-inch, full HD touch screen. Docking keyboard adds dual-pointing device, more ports, and extra battery. Long battery life.

Too much flex in the frame. Mediocre performance in testing.

Conclusion The Lenovo ThinkPad Helix 2nd Gen is a significant improvement over the original Helix, with better battery life, competent performance, and a better docking keyboard design. But even with these improvements, a lot can change in two years,...

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix 2 convertible business tablet

 

An Intel Core M CPU makes the ThinkPad Helix 2 run silently, gives it a bit more battery life

Silent operation ; WACOM digitiser and pen ; Full HD screen ; Built-in ports

Build quality a little creaky ; Standard keyboard dock doesn't actively hold the tablet in place, restricting laptop use

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix 2 review

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad Helix is an excellent convertible with a good range of ports, robust design and solid performance, and it shows a clear business focus lacking in many Windows 8.1 devices. However, with prices starting at £1,000 for the most basic...

Wealth of ports; solid design and docking mechanism; good battery by laptop standards; decent performance; responsive stylus

Expensive; screen is prone to glare
