It's much lighter and requires less leverage from a finger /thumb on the front...you can hold it in one hand just on the edged.    With a larger, heavier tablet, you will need more overlap/leverage.    My Galaxy Note II has even less bezel and it's fine.

Holding it, I think they got it about right.


 

Rick, that does make sense.  Thanks for an informed analysis.  :)

Just spoke to Mac mall... They will receive the helix shipment on may 1st or 2nd.... Which means this is not an end of April delivery date but a may date... At this rate I'm wondering does it make more sense to just wait for a tablet with haswell ? I mean this has been delayed and delayed ... Is something wrong with the product that is causing this whole thing to take so long? Soooooo annoyed!!!! What are y'all doin?

Do you think Haswell will (not) be delayed?

I called Lenovo on Saturday and the sales representative told me it would be in May.  He said he couldn't guarantee any exact dates.  I pressed him on it and he said he expected it would be more toward the beginning of the month.

I ran 3d mark with the standard graphics drivers that come from Lenovo then I downloaded the latest driver from Intel's website (officially non-supported but so far so good). I did see a nice jump in the 3d mark scores. My question is this, under processor speed it shows 768mhz??? What the heck is up with that? Anyone else here run 3d mark yet or can someone else please download and run. It's free and it's an awesome utility to see the differences in your score as you update your drivers over time. Thanks!!
