Re: When is the Helix release date?

2013-04-27, 10:52 AM

Just received my Helix this morning. The UK Version, 3698-6CG, which seems to have everything that is possible to have in a Helix, apart from the replacement of the 4G/LTE with a 3G module (standard SIM size). The laptop comes with a Lenovo SIM but I haven't installed that, so no idea what it is. Mine has taken nicely to a Three (3) network 12GB/12month SIM.

 

The Helix also came with a USB/Ethernet cable, and VGA cable. Just busy downloading updates/software.

Any questions about the UK version, feel free to ask.

I have that lenovo sim installed. But it does not seem to do anything. does anyone know where it is for?  Also how does nfc work. I'd like to share files with my phone (lumia 920) but I don't know how.

Has anyone experienced an issue with the touchpad not working after undocking and redocking the tablet?

It's happened 3 times now. FIrst 2 times, the touchpad worked but tapping didn't.

Third time, touchpad didn't work at all.

 

It's intermittent so I can't readily reproduce it.


I just received my helix from cdw.ca!  I am loving it.  However, I am experiencing something similar with the touchpad, it activates inverse scrolling after undock/redock.  So when I two-finger swipe down, it scrolls up.  I have to go into touchpad settings each time to change the setting back.  I am in the process of updating all of the drivers and stuff so hopefully that fixes it.



I updated all drivers and am no longer having this issue.  Make sure you go into the lenovo solution center and update the lenovo software. I am not sure exactly which update fixed it but its gone now

For UK - Lambda-tek now have stock of Helix.

MoreComputers have since sold all their 11 units.

 

I've been enjoying mine since Saturday. Given feedback in the forum, I've updated everything, including BIOS, and not had any unusual problems yet. Am now on the hunt for accessories, including additional power adapter (for work) with the 'slim tip' and a case.
