- Brightness is rather surprisingly weak.  Even at ~90%, it's much darker than my Surface is at ~50-60%.

 

that was an issue for me, but if you take off auto brightness, this helps a huge amount

Thanks, David.  That does help a *ton*.  I was about to be pretty disappointed.

I've gone through all pages of the thread and may have missed it, but can anyone who has the Helix now report on whether there's an SSD slot? I've read different conflicting reports.

 

Also, I returned a Sony VAIO Duo 11 about a month ago. Does anyone who has the Helix now, ever had or currently have the Duo 11? How would you rate each?

 

Thanks.

Yeah, that's what I said :-)

Thanks.

"Nits", yeah I read your earlier post. So the 400 Lenovo mentioned is not the case? Is there a range and 400 is the max it could be?

Appreciate everyone's answers.

I imagine I could purchase a 512GB SSD and replace the 256GB that comes with the unit? Anyone know for sure?

Viewing that link I don't see a difference between the 3698,3701, and 3702.

They all seem to show the same options.
