Re: When is the Helix release date?

2013-05-01, 1:28 AM

Just got my Helix  36984SU from Provantage.  Did all the updates. So far no issues in One Note with the pen or finger.  No problems with the track pad.  Only issue I have is that there is an actual bubble in the screen. Top left corner 2 inches in and 2 inches down.  Not a dead pixel but you can actually see a bubble in the glass under the surface.  Sort of a bummer for how much you spend.  Don't know time frame for returning or even when I can get another.  I'll check with Lenovo in the morning.

Ok it appears that I have a defective helix  -the square was actually something to do with the touchscreen   -it seems as if the screen is registering phantom touches -twisting the tablet sometimes clears it -but more often than not it shows the touch circles/square  -anyone else experiencing this?

Contacted Lenovo again. Regarding all Helix models, this time the guy said May 15th, but that wasn't a firm date. So basically not alot of solid info yet. I think I'm still holding out for the UU model.

So, im from Washington and I'm new to the Lenovo community forums, but I just received my helix... AWESOME. Ordered from PC Connection on the 12th and just got it yesterday 30th--crazy ridiculous wait. But it's worth it. A few people have defects so, I'll be on the lookout if mine starts acting up too (I don't think it will). Maybe, just maybe I'll post a video.

Do you have the model with the 3G or 4G chip?   If not, it's likely just using wifi to estimate your location, ans that can be off by quite a bit.

Just a quick note.

 

I have had mine since they first hit US back in early April.  No problems so far.  For the fan control I just turn it on when I would like quite like at night.  But other wise do not keep it on mainly because I need to find those recommended settings.

 

I am still working on projector and WiDi issues with companies.

 

My biggest criticism is win 8 and MS.  I am getting used to Win 8 and I heard from our IT person  that win 8.1 will be coming out soon will be much better.  But I have had my passwords reset by MS and problems turning off  needed passwords on start up and waking up from sleep.  All off now but what a pain.  My IT guy says that he thinks my system has been linked to MS Cloud.  I am going to check on this as I am not interested in it.  He says that people have been able to de-link from the cloud but he thought that was not so easy.  Anyone have ideas on this?
