There seems to be a plethora of “hybrids” or “convertible ultrabooks” on the market right now. Everyone’s trying to figure out the best design for implementing both tablet and laptop functionality. Is there a design that particularly stands out? Maybe. Lenovo is definitely trying all sorts of interesting concepts. The ThinkPad Helix is one such device and it uses a “Flip-and-Rip” system where the touchscreen is detached from the base and keyboard to be used as a slate tablet. It differs from other conventional convertible ultrabook designs because it does not implement the popular clamshell chassis. For business professionals looking for a corporate business computing solution, the ThinkPad Helix is definitely something you should look more into.

Because this system is from Lenovo’s professional-grade ThinkPad line, as opposed to the consumer-targeted IdeaPad line, you can expect to pay a bit of a premium compared with other machines with similar specs. For a ThinkPad’s rigid construction, best-in-class keyboard, and IT-friendly security features, that’s perfectly reasonable, in theory.
