Lenovo Windows 8 Tablet

It appears that the Lenovo ThinkPad Helix will give a new meaning to a tablet/laptop hybrid with the features that it offers to users, according to a report from theverge.com.  The Lenovo ThinkPad Helix does more than simply allowing users to attach and detach a keyboard to extend its battery life. The features of the tablet itself are already remarkable and with the addition of the keyboard docking station, its performance goes up to next level.

The 11.6-inch touchscreen tablet offers a full 1080p resolution for its screen display along with a Core i7 processor, 8GB Ram and 256GB SSD. The processor of this Windows 8 tablet will be overclocked when the keyboard dock is attached to it due to the cooling system found on its hinge. The keyboard dock can be attached in a number of ways, backward, forward, and even with the display facing away from the dock. This will allow users to use the device as a tablet with an enhanced performance and increased battery life. It also has a number of ports integrated 4G LTE connectivity and a Wacom stylus pen.

The Lenovo ThinkPad Helix also offers support for near field communication which allows users to perform tasks by simply tapping the device. For added security, a Kensington lock is also integrated into the locking system of the tablet. The Lenovo ThinkPad Helix has a total battery life of ten hours, five hours each from the keyboard and the tablet itself.

However, all of these features do come with a price, an odd touchpad that has five buttons beneath the surface and a $1,499 price tag. The Lenovo ThinkPad Helix is expected to enter the market by February, which means potential users have around a month to save up for this feature-laden Windows 8 tablet.
