    So i'm running a t430u right now, its pretty neat. but i really want a tearaway and lenovo is the only company that makes one (besides the surface pro2 which is a tablet with a fancy keyboard... been there/done that)

    anything else out there interested in something alike the helix?

    Lenovo has some hot deals on their outlet sometimes. I almost jumped on a yoga last week with an i7, 128gb, and 8 gb ram for like 500 ish that was a scratch and dent.

    I had a demo of the helix.

    It sucked.

    I'll be happy as long as it's better than the surface. It was also a custom build for my liking.

    the battery in the tablet part is either bad, or the connector was loose and got unseated. i'm hoping the latter when i open it up tonight.


    on another note, i'm constantly poking at laptop screens that don't have touch capability :(
