Yeah, paid $41 for overnight AM shipping.

 

Decided to go with SU instead of 4U. Company is paying for Verizon MiFi, so I figured I'd use it.


 
Just received shipping confirmation from Provantage
 Status says "Shipping Now"
Will be here tomorrow morning.

You will not find it on thier website, you have to call and request it. Give them the model number 36984SU.

 

The reps name again is Leo Richards

His direct number is  330-494-3781   extension 133

 

Any rep should be able to assist you though.

Got mine in yesterday.  

 

First impressions is that this thing is awesome. Feels as solid as the Surface with some nice extras.

 

The screen is a great size, bigger than the surface to the point it feels just right.  

 

Keyboard feels full size and doesnt make me feel like i am scrunching up my fingers to use.

 

Battery life has been great, used it all of last night without having to plug in the charger.

 

Pen is kinda small, wish it was a little thicker.  But at least they were smart and have a built in holder.

 

The trackpad will take some getting used to with no clickers.

 

Here are some comparison pics next to a Surface Pro.

 

This cameras was taken with a Samsung Galaxy S3, they are both at full brightness. 8MP

This was taken with another Helix of the same model. 5MP

Let me know if you need more info.

 

The Helix model is 36984SU

Good deal.  Sounds like I save $100 by preordering.

The 36984UU I had on back order from CDW was $2027 after 25% discount.

However, bird in the hand...

Somewhere back there was a post about the usb port not alive from the keyboard when the systems was a rest.   I pointed out that mine was still alive.  The reply was must be due to the update.  I did not realize / remember but i must have done the update when I first got the Helix as the only thing available for me to update is the WiDi and mine is working great so unsure it I want to update that just yet.

 

Anyway I just wanted to point that out about the usb port.
