Lenovo launches ThinkPad Helix and ThinkPad Tablet 2

Lenovo recently launched two new additions to its lineup of Windows 8 touch-optimized Thinkpad devices aimed at small medium businesses (SMBs) and enterprises – the ThinkPad Helix and the ThinkPad Tablet 2.

Starting with the ThinkPad Helix, the Helix is a hybrid ultrabook that converts into a tablet via its “rip and flip” design. It functions first as an ultrabook, “rip” it away from its keyboard dock and you now have a fully functional Windows 8 tablet with 11.6-inch display. “Flip” the tablet 180-degrees and dock it back into Stand Mode to turn it into a mini-movie theater or business presentation central.

    I really want the ThinkPad Tablet 2, but the price is too expensive, especially that baytrail is upon us in Q4. Though, I understand that this is catered to business users and not consumers.
