Adaptability On Your Terms
With a 2-in-1 form factor, you can use your Helix as a Tablet or snap it into the included external keyboard to use it as a fully-functional Laptop PC. Should you want to use it as a traditional Desktop, simply attach it to a dock for use with a larger monitor, full-sized mouse and keyboard, etc. Get adaptability on your terms.
Full HD (1920x1080), 400-Nit Display With IPS Technology
The Helix’s stunning display uses in-plane switching (IPS) technology for high brightness, vivid colors, and nearly 180-degree viewing angles.
Long Battery Life
Do a full day of work — and then some — on a single charge. The Helix’s battery lasts for up to eight hours in Tablet Mode, and up to 12 hours when connected to a keyboard.
The ThinkPad Helix includes a detachable keyboard for on-the-go productivity. The Ultrabook Keyboard offers additional USB and HDMI connectivity, and TouchPad navigation.
Digitizer Pen Support
Each ThinkPad Helix includes a digitizer pen to maximize productivity. The digitizer pen performs capacitive touchscreen functions — swipe, drag, open, click — with precise control, and converts your handwriting into digital text. It provides a natural, fluid writing experience and lets you take notes, sign documents, annotate PDFs, and more.
Advanced Security/Manageability Features
Intel® vPro™ technology makes enterprise-level manageability even more convenient and cost-saving — manage, protect, repair, or locate your deployed laptops from anywhere in the world. Other features that help make the Helix a secure, enterprise-ready business tool, include software and hardware TPM, fingerprint reader, and optional SmartCard support.
The ThinkPad Helix has plenty of space for all of your important files, videos, photos, and presentations.
2MP front-facing HD webcam for crystal-clear video conferencing; 5MP HD AF rear-facing camera with 30 fps video recording.
Ultraportable, Yet Durable
The Helix is ultraportable in any configuration, and perfect for doers on the go: 1.75 lbs (tablet only) and 3 lbs (tablet plus Ultrabook Keyboard) — with no configuration exceeding 1" in thickness. Yet robust materials like aluminum and Gorilla Glass, plus eight MIL-SPEC tests, ensure this is one tough, durable device.
Full Accessory Ecosystem
Get the most out of your Helix device with a complete ecosystem of accessories, designed to optimize and protect your investment and boost productivity, from the ThinkPad Tablet Dock, to the Quickshot Cover, to the Digitizer Pen.
Get online wherever you are, thanks to 802.11 a/c WiFi. Plus, features like near field communications (NFC) and wireless display support mean Helix will have no trouble communicating with other devices.
- NFC available only with WWAN models; WWAN and NFC models coming soon.
Bluetooth is a proprietary open wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances (using short-wavelength radio transmissions in the ISM band from 2400–2480 MHz) from fixed and mobile devices, creating personal area networks (PANs) with high levels of security.
Protect Your Identity and Business
Intel® Identity Protection Technology (Intel® IPT) protects enterprises from being penetrated by stolen credentials and online user account access with an added layer of hardware-based security and authentication as well as a multifactor authentication framework to manage different authentication methods.
Leading-Edge Security for an Unwired Workplace
The capabilities of Intel® vPro™ technology help IT leadership protect cloud and virtual environments from rootkits and malware threats while ensuring that their organization can keep up with workforce demands. Hardware-based features support centralized image management and administration, secure network storage, and out-of-band protection.
Higher Performance When You Need It Most
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.01 accelerates processor and graphics performance by increasing the operating frequency when operating below specification limits. The maximum frequency varies depending on workload, hardware, software, and overall system configuration.
Solutions to Help You Focus on Your Small Business
Intel® Small Business Advantage (Intel® SBA) helps small businesses without a managed network manage security and productivity issues. This solution helps maintain and protect PCs automatically so that you can focus on running your business.
Energy Star is an international standard for energy efficient consumer products created in 1992. Devices carrying the Energy Star service mark generally use 20%–30% less energy than average.
EPEAT® is a comprehensive environmental rating that helps identify greener computers and other electronic equipment. EPEAT®-registered electronic products meet environmental measures referred to as criteria. All of the criteria used in EPEAT are based on ANSI-approved public standards, which provide technical details for every criterion and specify how a manufacturer must demonstrate compliance.
The EPEAT Gold rating means that the product meets all required criteria plus 75% of the optional criteria.
The device is Wi-Fi certified, for wireless exchange of data with other devices using the 802.11 protocol.
The electrical or electronic product contains little or no Hazardous Substances (RoHS). Any RoHS compliant product is tested for the presence of Lead (Pb), Cadmium (Cd), Mercury (Hg), Hexavalent chromium (Hex-Cr), Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE). PBB and PBDE are flame retardants used in several plastics. For Cadmium and Hexavalent chromium, there must be less than 0.01% of the substance by weight. For Lead, PBB, and PBDE, there must be no more than 0.1% of the material. Any RoHS compliant component must have 100 ppm or less of mercury and the mercury must not have been intentionally added to the component.
Simplify Virtualization and Reduce Overheads
Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) helps make virtualization practical by eliminating performance overheads, reducing complexity, and improving security with hardware assistance. Virtualization allows multiple workloads to share a common set of resources so that a variety of workloads can co-locate while maintaining full isolation from each other.
