Get ready to turn heads at your next meeting. Introducing ThinkPad Helix—the premier convertible for business users featuring Ultrabook specs, a powerful sleek Think design, and the Windows 8 OS. Today is the second major product release for Lenovo at CES in Vegas and it’s all about convertibles—introducing ThinkPad Helix. This is the premier convertible for business users. It features an 11.6” 10-point multi-touch screen with pen touch and Gorilla Glass, a bright 400nit IPS panel that has a 1920x1080 resolution, and 10 hours of battery life to keep you going for an entire workday. This Ultrabook convertible adds to the momentum of convertible products we released in October.  ThinkPad Helix is built around a simple “rip and flip” design so users can swiftly go from Ultrabook to tablet.
