Oh man, I don't think I can hold out until mid 2014.. Hope you'll keep us in the loop on further developments and/or gossip.

Called it! Surface Pro 2 is in the mail. Trusty Lenovo keyboard, I will miss you dearly. Maybe we'll meet again in 2015.

Got yesterday my new Surface Pro 2, 256GB - it's great! But for all of you out there, who want to write (really) long texts on your lap, while sitting in a train/plane/... I recommend to take a look at the Fujitsu Q704 or T904 OR - really wait for the Helix 2 ... but from all what I've heard: It won't come before June/July 2014... 

On the other handside this could be also a good sign: not only adding haswell to the existing Helix, but redesign it from scratch with/for Broadwell ...

 

So see you in 2015 Helix ;)

Yeah of course, but what does not speak for the Venue Pro 11: Does not have the necessary power (either Baytrail or Haswell-Y) AND (main issue) stylus is really, really bad.

A friend of mine, was at the Venue Hotel in NY and he was able to get his hands on - not good at all (vectoring, detecting input even when 1cm away from screen).

And it doesn't have all the software gimmicks that the Surface has.

Welcome in the club ;) 

Helix definitely would have been my first choice - even if it would be 500$ pricier - but it's simply still not here...

SP2 with 256GB is great for working - a tip for you: DON'T RESET IT (if you don't really have to do so...at least at the moment):  problems with the firmware !

Just checked with a lenovo sales rep. He said they would be updating the Helix with Haswell in December.
