Product Reviews
Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 62reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best laptop ever! This is the best computer I have ever had! I love the 2 in 1 functionality, especially since I have been a regular laptop user. The only con is the display. I have seen some image persistence when displaying some parts of Windows for an extended period of time. Overall, it is a great machine and people who are willing to spend more money are in for a real treat by buying this product. June 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome value I've had my Helix for about a month now and I couldn't be happier! I wanted something that was compact, lightweight and fully functional for my personal and business use--and I got all that with the Helix. I give it 5 stars across the board for performance, sleek design and functionality. My only peeve (which I don't think is bad enough to rate it lower) is that the screen resolution hasn't caught up the the software just yet, so everything is kinda small on the screen. June 12, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent laptop/Tablet I think this is an excellent laptop/tablet. Performance had been outstanding and I truly appreciate the 256gb SSD which is very fast. The screen is very good and the battery life has been OK in my usage. I enjoy having the choice of using a trackpoint or trackpad. My only significant criticism is the trackpad is not particularly easy to use or set for the correct amount of pressure. It functions as the select buttons for the trackpoint which is somewhat cumbersome. Other than that it is an outstanding device that I have found useful in both laptop mode and tablet mode. I think the keyboard is very good compared to other convertibles. April 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Business Laptop/tablet This is the best laptop/tablet so far. Great for my business. It could have been excellent if the usb ports were on the sides rather than back of the screen. Overall it's an A+ product. April 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by i love this computer I love this computer. its a laptop, and a tablet. all in on. and it is fast. April 7, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Helix from Lenovo outlet The Helix arrived in very good condition and performed extremely wellthe package is nice with all components neatly wrapped with extremely minimal scratch and dents- basically no noticeable defects on the surface and the screena very purchase indeedthe only negative comments would be that the Lenovo site itself is sometimes unstable/unreliable March 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Helix replaced by Helix I've had my Helix w 4GB mem, 128GB HD, WWAN and pen for 18 mos. It's a great machine, great feeling keyboard with all the features and tablet mobility that i wanted to fit home and business use. The flexibility is so good that when i started having problems with the keyboard (wouldn't reset and wasn't recognizing trackpoint/touchpad) that i replaced it with another Helix this time with 8GB mem, 256GB HD, WWAN & pen. Would have gone with a Helix 2 but they didn't have the models with WWAN available yet. The only downside for the Helix one is that the keyboard dock is not sturdy enough when you pick it up with one hand by the dock and it flexs and eventually mine broke. Also, with WIN8.1 pro, the dock lost function of the trackpoint and touchpad. As a long-time Thinkpad user, it was very inconvenient without the trackpoint. Glad to see they retained that on the Helix 2. March 25, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Lenovo Helix Bought the fully optioned Helix a year ago. Screen rotates 90 degrees when an external monitor is connected. Problem typically resolves after disconnecting and reconnecting 3 times. Occasionally only one reconnect necessary. Occasionally powers off, especially where more than three reconnects. Lenovo service not interested. February 28, 2015
