Re: When is the Helix release date?

Well my two previous portables were a Sager desktop replacement (2 hard drives) and a Sony VAIO Duo 11.

 

The Sony's keyboard was not detachable. The Sager was a monster.

 

So this is a welcomed change.

Does anyone know if the Helix is slated to work on Verizon's network vs ATT?

I usually do, when you use an expensive piece of harware for business purposes I think it's worth the cost and my previous experience with lenovo's service has been positive.  They sent me to a local shop in suburban Chicago and I had the laptop back the same day.  Maybe just lucky that day, but to me that's value.

I absolutely agree.

I'm wondering what the difference is between:

1. Accidental damage protection + priority tech support $189

2. Accidental damage protection - tablet $199

No idea, I'm not that close to buying yet, I'm still waiting for word on Verizon 4g before i get too seriously involved.  Regarding Lenovo plans, they definitely try and razzle dazzle with service options.  i usually configure online and then call their reps directly, ask the questions and then I continue the online order.

I was really excited to pull the trigger few weeks ago.  But with all the reports coming in about possible heat/fan noise issues and total lack of availability my interest really waned.  I don't have any illusions about playing with a new toy anytime soon.  Don't get me wrong I'm not saying the Helix isn't good; I still think its the most compelling machine for me just that all this anticipation took its toll.

 

My wallet thanks Lenovo.

I couldn't agree more.  I wonder how many addition units Lenovo would sell if they actually hit their delivery dates.  Every time they miss one, it gives me time to pause on my purchase, and ultimately decide no.  I'm usually pretty disciplined in my technology, and love to upgrade, but they sure know how to kill a buzz.
