ThinkPad Helix 2-in-1 PC

ThinkPad Helix 2nd Gen

Attach Helix to the included keyboard dock for full-on productivity, or detach and kick back for some light browsing. What's more, Helix features Digitizer Pen support.

    ThinkPad Helix 2nd GenFeatures

    Ultraportable; Ultra-Powerful

    The Helix is a fully-capable productivity device - with power comparable to most standard-sized laptops. Featuring the latest Intel® Core™ M processors, an ultra-sharp FHD display, and plenty of storage, you'll get unparalleled mobility without sacrificing ability.

    Adaptable to Fit Your Needs

    Take Helix with you anywhere so that you're never out of touch, and never limited. It's ultra-slim and light at just under 3 lbs. (with Ultrabook Keyboard), and well under a half-inch thick. Essentially, you're getting increased functionality, and the same power, as laptops that are nearly double the weight. What's more, its dual cameras, WiFi, and available WWLAN options ensure you're always connected.

    Choose Your Keyboard

    Two available keyboard offerings allow laptop-style productivity wherever you are. The Ultrabook Keyboard offers additional USB and HDMI connectivity, and TouchPad navigation. Or, consider the Ultrabook Pro keyboard and benefit from an additional USB 3.0, mini Display port, full TrackPoint and TouchPad navigation, backlit keys, speakers, and a second battery for up to 12 hours of productivity.

    Pen Support for Enhanced Precision

    The entire internet just wasn't built for an 11.6" display. That's where our digitizer pen comes in. You can navigate, swipe, drag, open, or click with enhanced precision when you utilize the optional ThinkPad Digitizer Pen. It's also great for jotting down notes, sending quick messages, or just doodling

    A Tablet When You Want It

    The Helix experience starts out as a tablet but is capable of becoming so much more. Without the included keyboard dock, the Helix weighs in at a mere 1.75 lbs. - making it ultra-convenient to review emails, check in on the quarterly numbers, or kick back with a good e-book.

    A Laptop When you Need It

    We've blurred the lines between laptop and tablet. Helix can be attached to its precision keyboard dock, allowing you all the abilities of a standard productivity machine wherever you can find a spot to set up. But sometimes you just need a bigger screen, and maybe even a mouse? No worries, you can connect to any such external devices through the attached dock.
