Dave, how does it compare with the Samsung Ativ Smart PC Pro 700T1?

Is the fan noise that people are complaining about an issue in tablet mode, when docked, or both? Thanks.

Hi, only in dock mode. Fan control software works perfect if used in smart mode.
Bts solved my gps issue just reinstalling the ericsson drivers from lenovo support site.

elee532,
If you have TPFC (ThinkPadFanControl) installed, you can toggle the fan speed--it might lead to overheating (just hotter than usual, not to the point of it melting the processor) though. However, the fan when docked as clamshell (laptop mode) and Tablet+ (screen docked backwards) mode can get pretty loud if you want it to; that said, the tablet by itself mode and the fan inside it is an inconsequential matter--I can barely hear it when it is on.

Sorry, do not know which Dave, but I have a Galaxy note 10.1, cannot be of help.

Guys
Let's keep this thread on topic. (release info) thanks.
That being said, amazon shows may 8. But nothing on the UU model.

in the hopes of staying on topic, I am sure this is of some help:

 

apparently I downloaded the wintab drivers...and photoshop works. hopefully this is not just an idiosyncrasy of my own circumstances. but here it is. notice I have all the pressure buttons and airbrushing buttons on. let me know if anyone else has had success with it. one thing to note is that the pen that comes with the Helix--it leaves more to be desired. still I am glad, though, that it comes with a pen.helixPRESSURE.jpg

so, if we can have others confirm the working of the "wintab drivers" on the Helix, I hope this helps in some people's decision to purchase the device or not. I personally love it. :smileyhappy:

Correct me if I am wrong.  Shouldn't  driver discussions be on a new thread? 

 

 When is the Helix release date?  Specifically the UU model???
