FYI,

 

Mine now is in transit.  Just left Shanghai.  My colleague in engineering who ordered his through different channels is getting his on Tuesday also.  So this sort of confirms the big shipment idea so most likely you should be getting yours around that time time also.

Re: When is the Helix release date?

I need to order one of these for an exec at my company.  Looking at CDW's website, these things range all over the place in price, with very little info to differentiate them.  I see an i5 that's $1000 more than what appears to be a loaded i7 for example.  Using the compare feature on the website is worse than useless (lists only some as touch screen for example).

 

Is there another place to order these with clearer config info?  Thanks.

not sure I dont recall seeing gps as a stock feature of it?  I know the gobi chip for wwan has gps so I figured why not and ordered the one that was a little more to make sure on gps, seemed like something that could end up fun

Which model on CDW is loaded with GPS?  Again, can't tell from the lame config descriptions.
