Laptop, Tablet and Everything in Between

ThinkPad® Helix combines the performance of an Ultrabook™ inspired by Intel® with the mobility of a tablet. In addition to 10 hours of battery life, a fluid Windows 8 operating system interface, and all the power you need with up to a 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor, Helix offers the choice of four unique modes to help students, teachers, and administrators work or collaborate in any type of educational space.

One device, four awesome modes

Helix Multimode

ThinkPad Helix’s innovative “Rip and Flip” design maximizes versatility – students and educators can work individually in Laptop Mode and Tablet Mode allows them to get mobile or focus on reading. Stand Mode facilitates collaboration and presentation – simply dock ThinkPad Helix backward on the enhanced keyboard. Fold it down onto the base for Tablet+ Mode and get more power, ports, and battery life than a standard tablet for instant full PC functionality.

The ThinkPad Helix convertible Ultrabook also solves the limitations and deployment headaches associated with other tablets with full productivity application support, the ability to apply existing Windows IT expertise, and compatibility with all major networking and connectivity standards.

Full HD 1920 x 1080 IPS display

Draw students in with a vibrant, wide-view 11.6" 400-nit Corning® Gorilla® glass IPS display that delivers a vivid and immersive viewing experience and ten-finger multi-touch technology that seamlessly integrates with Windows 8 for more natural control.
