The ThinkPad Helix is Lenovo’s attempt at a powerful Windows 8 hybrid for business users. Base specs include an Intel Core i5 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of solid state storage. The 11.6-inch, 1080p tablet detaches from the included keyboard and trackpad dock, or flips around into tablet mode as a single unit–“rip and flip,” as the company likes to call it. When attached, the Helix gets about 10 hours of battery life, compared to about 6 hours for the tablet on its own.
You might want to sit down for the price, though: The base model will cost $1,500 when it launches this quarter.
