I looked at netgear also. Flip of the coin for me. Be interested in your experiences.

Fyi. In terms of widi, idid not upgrade on the helix. I did go to the intel site and they indicated I needed one new driver. Instead of doing that I just tried the belkin widi. If worked after it upgraded its own drivers. I will consider the helix upgrade later. If it aint broke dont fix, is my idea right now.

"I think the only place you can get it from now is directly from lenovo sales executives."

Looks like you can order it from CDW. Not sure about their availibility. 

Thats funny about the WIDI, I had the same thoughts. :smileysurprised:

 

Out of the box the widi did not work with the Netgear. I had to update the firmware, Update the wireless drivers, Intel graphics drivers then the WIDI all to the latest from the intel site. Ones from the lenovo site would not work.

Would connect but the screen would go black and not show up as a monitor.

 

Actually my X1 carbon and W530 didnt work either. Seems more picky with the drivers on windows 8

Only reason i got the netgear instead is because its usb powered.

Works great now all plug and play.

Guys, I am in NY for the next weeks and want to buy an i7 LTE Helix. Any idea where in the US I could order one and get it within the next 12 days? 

 

Thanks a lot!

That is interesting about the usb powered.  Not sure how that works as my plan in addtin to the tv is to attach it to a projector for lectures, using powerpoint for example?    Anyway I got the Belkin because of reports of issues with laptop compatabilty and some of the problems that you had.  glad it is all fixed.  Now it would be interesting to know if they in the end perform differently.  Still testing mine.

Wish I could help.  Even the Lenovo site still says it is coming soon.  I am on the lenovo alert system in which they will send a text when available.  No text yet and I have mine.  Someone pointed out to me that this first shipment was probably for business (e.g., Michigan State University). 

 

Actually NY should have a lenovo store.
