Product Reviews
Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 36reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fully Flexible Awesome I purchased this when my old laptop could not support the new applications I need to run. This is a marvelous piece of engineering that provides all the flexibility a mobile user requires these days. The open architecture allows me to use devices I already own, so glad I didn't compromise with a tablet that would limit my access.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Review The operating system 8.1 does not work well. Does not connect to the wireless internet well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] November 4, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Buy I bought mine about a month ago. After I did all of the updates (which took awhile) my Helix hasnty skipped a beat. I was looking for a compact option for work. I am a Project Manager so I am always on the go. I needed something that was powerful enough to use for Remote Desktop but not break the bank. I couldnt be happier with this purchase. I showed a coworker of mine who is also a PM and he purchased one as well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] October 25, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by You Need Very Good Eyesight to Use This Machine The machine is completely in keeping with Lenovo's exacting standards from every perspective.The only problem is the deployment of 1920 x 1080 on an 11.6" screen. The resolution is so fine that it is nearly unreadable (to the eyes of a 60 year old).If you have great eyesight, this machine is near perfect, particularly at this price. If your eyesight is less than perfect, good luck. October 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Helix Rocks I'm a month into this new computer and I love it. The size is perfect for my wife to tote around her college campus. We both REALLY like the keyboard and also like to use it to read in bed as just a tablet. The touchscreen is incredible visually and responsive. Processor and performance are very strong for what we are using it for (College work, spreadsheets, business applications, web browsing, watching videos). Very strong and reliable WiFi.Glad it shipped with Win 8. I will not be upgrading to 10 given the VERY bad experience I have had with that on 3 other machines in out house.We could not be more pleased with the experience and the price for such a solid machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Multiple Blue Screens I upgraded to Windows 10 from 8.1. I have spent more time rebooting from crashes than I have been able to use the computer for productivity. Wireless will not stay connected. "DPC Watchdog violation" Problem per internet search is incompatible adapter driver and intel hard disc driver. All updated to latest available without resolution.. IT person for enterprise spent 3 days on it without resolution. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] October 4, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great machine I have had this for 2+ years now and love it. It boots up super fast. It is very versatile to use without without a keyboard. Service and support have been worth it for me. THe keyboard has had a couple of problems but I got a replacement VERY fast, so no big deal. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] October 2, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great battery life. Great battery life, but the hinge and the build make me question the durability of this device. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] October 2, 2016
