Lenovo ThinkPad Helix

At IFA 2014, Lenovo announced the updated new ThinkPad Helix which is now even thinner and lighter and more fully-featured. The ThinkPad Helix weighs 2.98 pounds and measures only 0.38 inches, 15 percent thinner than its predecessor.
Lenovo has now packed this Ultrabook with the all new Intel® Core™ M(broadwell) processor, providing even better performance than the previous generation.

Running on the trusted build and durability of Think-branded products, ThinkPad Helix also looks great with its sleek and premium finish. Fashioned from an aluminum grip-friendly finish, it provides a professional image for business. The ThinkPad Helix also features astonishing power efficiency and battery life, compared to its predecessor.

Just like its predecessor, ThinkPad Helix retains the five modes users rely on to stay productive – Tablet, Stand, Tent, Laptop, and Desktop. The ThinkPad Helix includes Windows 8.1 Pro and a suite of add-on security options, including biometric fingerprint reader, military-grade smart card reader and three factor authentication.

Lenovo is providing lots of exclusive software with this device,

The 2-in-1 also comes pre-loaded with software offerings like Lenovo Settings, Lenovo Companion 2.0, Lenovo Reach and Lenovo SHAREit to keep users’ digital content organized between different devices and files. Lenovo Settings provides users with the ability to control and improve their device’s performance and manage system functions easily, automatically and predictably, while Lenovo Companion 2.0 acts as a central hub for users to easily access and understand their system’s best features, manage system health, view available driver updates, buy customized accessories and check warranty status. Lenovo Reach is a cloud storage service for users to store and access files from multiple devices, and Lenovo SHAREit easily transfers digital content to any smartphone, PC and tablet.

Users can choose between the ThinkPad Helix with Ultrabook Keyboard or ThinkPad Helix with Ultrabook Pro Keyboard for even more power with battery life. ThinkPad Helix is equipped with Gorilla® Glass and a large FHD display and can be paired with an optional ThinkPad digitizer pen for additional flexibility and usability.

The ThinkPad Helix will be available beginning in October with models starting at $999 (with Ultrabook keyboard) and will be available worldwide via business partners and www.lenovo.com.
