Lenovo’s Ultrabook Has A ‘Rip & Flip’ Party Trick

X

Lenovo’s new ThinkPad Helix is an Ultrabook and Intel powered tablet in one.

Lenovo’s Helix is like any 11.6 inch Ultrabook. It has a powerful 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor, up to 8GB of RAM, 256GB of memory and optional 3G connectivity. The screen has an impressive Full HD resolution, it has 400 nits of brightness, video cameras on the front & back, and at 1.7 kilograms, it’s portable.

However, this Ultrabook has a detachable screen, which transforms it into a powerful Windows 8 tablet. As a tablet, it weighs 835 grams and is the thinnest in its class.

More interesting is the mechanism Lenovo has used to convert the tablet into an Ultrabook. Lenovo describe it as “rip and flip” because you can detach the screen, flip it 180 degrees and dock it again.

This means when you’re giving a presentation, the entire boardroom can see the screen without the keyboard interfering. And when you get carried away, gently closing the lid will ensure you can use the Helix as a tablet on the fly.

 

 

 

Optional NFC will facilitate the sharing of data seamlessly between compatible devices.


When docked Lenovo’s Helix will last ten hours before its two batteries go flat.
