Even the most tech-savvy folks out there that eat gadgets for breakfast, lunch and dinner can’t hope to keep up with all the Windows 8 laptop launches. However, there are a few special devices that have a sufficiently high ‘wow factor’ to get stuck to people’s memories for months in a row.
One such Win 8 powered notebook is the 11.6-inch Lenovo ThinkPad Helix, unveiled at CES in January and initially scheduled to start selling in February. Unfortunately, the 11-incher’s launch has now been pushed back to “March or April”.
That’s an official ETA, mentioned on Facebook by Lenovo, although the causes of this delay are still unknown.
As a quick refresher, the ThinkPad Helix is not just an ordinary laptop, being of the hybrid breed that’s so aggressively being pushed by Microsoft these days. The 11-incher has a detachable keyboard and “combines the performance of a business ultrabook with the mobility of a Windows 8 tablet.”
The spec sheet includes a state of the art 1,920 x 1,080 Full HD IPS display, Intel Core i5 or i7 CPUs, up to 256 GB of SSD storage and up to 8 GB of RAM. The base configuration will go for $1,499.
