I was told this about 30 minutes ago in a chat.  First week in May. All models.


I'll jump in here and confirm I was told that today as well (chat with Lenovo rep).

All models sometime next week.

 

Not holding breath though...

I hope you are right too!

 

But I will believe it when I see it.  This has been a bumpy roll out.  I do want to be optimistic... I do, really!

What does "All models" mean?

Does that include models with LTE?

I asked the guy about the 36984UU in particular. He replied "all models" by the end of the first week in may.

It is the worst non-release of a computer ever!  

 

Poor planning (or lack of).  Poor production line (or lack of). 

 

I guess I wil lbe getting my 'Dear John' letter for the UU model I ordered. 

 

I may give up on this system.  I am reading more and more negative reviews... over heating, software gliches...  It is not ready for prime time.  Great idea, poor execution...

 

Bummer


I am also wondering if the Helix is worth wading through all its issues given its high price.

Problem is if you want pen and ink, there aren't many options. The ASUS, maybe - no other ThinkPads - (would love to be wrong).

The Ericsson WWAN card offered as a workaround is ATT 3G only, no LTE.  :(   No firm word on when/if the Helix will support ATT LTE.

Sorry to ask here  -but i just upgraded the warranty on my Helix so that I have the 3yr onsite next day + accidental protection  -how long does it take for Lenovo's system to see the new warranty status (it still shows as standard/basic warranty)?
