    ThinkPad Helix Convertible Ultrabook LaptopFeatures

    Intel® Core™ M and Intel® Core™ M vPro™ Processors

    These processors deliver the performance to increase productivity for your business. Devices turn on in an instant and are always up-to-date. You can multitask quickly, move effortlessly between applications, and collaborate wirelessly in a high quality videoconference — all with the convenience of longer battery life. Plus, you can guard against identity theft and ensure safe access to your network with built-in security features. In fact, the only thing more amazing than an Intel Core processor-based PC, is what you will do with it.

    Windows 8.1

    Built for business. Built for life. The new Windows brings together everything you do across all your devices — whether at home, at work, or on the go. With Windows 8.1 Pro, you get everything in Windows 8.1, plus enhanced security features like trusted boot, improved biometric support, backup to SkyDrive, anti-malware, device encryption, and remote business data removal, as well as simplified technology like tap to print, auto-triggered VPN, SkyDrive integration, and more.

    2-in-1 Form Factor

    Use your Helix as a Tablet or snap it into an external keyboard to use it as a fully capable Laptop PC. Should you want to use it as a Desktop, simply attach it to a dock for use with a larger monitor, full-sized mouse and keyboard, etc. Get adaptability on your terms

    Full HD (1920x1080), 370-Nit Display With IPS Technology

    The Helix’s stunning display uses in-plane switching (IPS) technology for high brightness, vivid colors, and nearly 180-degree viewing angles.

    Long Battery Life

    Do a full day of work — and then some — on a single charge. The Helix’s battery lasts for up to eight hours in Tablet Mode.

    Digitizer Pen Support

    Select models include a digitizer pen to maximise productivity on your ThinkPad Helix. In all five modes, the digitizer pen performs capacitive touchscreen functions — swipe, drag, open, click — with precise control, and converts your handwriting into digital text. It provides a natural, fluid writing experience and lets you take notes, sign documents, annotate PDFs, and more.

    Advanced Security/Manageability Features

    Intel® vPro™ technology makes enterprise-level manageability even more convenient and cost-saving — manage, protect, repair, or locate your deployed laptops from anywhere in the world. Other features that help make the Helix a secure, enterprise-ready business tool, configure your ThinkPad Helix to, include software and hardware TPM, fingerprint support, and SmartCard support.

    Substantial Storage

    With up to 256GB storage, the ThinkPad Helix has plenty of space for all of your important files, videos, photos, and presentations.

    Dual Cameras

    2MP front-facing HD webcam for crystal-clear video conferencing; 5MP HD AF rear-facing camera with 30 fps video recording.

    Ultraportable, Yet Durable

    With weights ranging from 795g (tablet only) to 1.36kg (tablet plus Ultrabook Keyboard), and thicknesses ranging from 9.6mm (tablet) to 25.4mm (tablet plus Ultrabook Keyboard), the Helix is ultraportable in any configuration, and perfect for doers on the go. Yet robust materials like aluminum and Gorilla Glass, plus eight MIL-SPEC tests, ensure this is one tough, durable device.
