    Looks like it's coming soon, at least according to their twitter.

    If they were aiming for a December release, they would say it, I think. I'm guessing January.

    The Helix appeared at FCC: Lenovo TP00045A1IT Tablet Spotted at the FCC; May Come With Windows and Stylus | Tablets & Tablet News

    I think Helix will come to Market in January 2013, because Intel will release their 10w Ivy-Bridge CPUs in January. We will see more on CES 2013.

    What's the story on the 10W IB chips, btw? Does anyone know anything? My presumption is significantly better battery life at the cost of power? Sort of a cpu that's part way between an Atom and a normal iCore????? It's a trade off I could take-- though the fact that this supposeldy has a battery in the base as well as the slate makes it much more desirable as an iCore tablet.

    Cool... So, does anyone have a translation for that? LOL. I think they're comparing the new IB CPUs with an older 1.1 ghz core2duo, right? And showing that the have similar tdp? Does anyone have any thought on what that should mean when applied to real life, re: battery life and CPU power?

    8 pages of discussion and not one comment about how X200T series being replaced by this dainty thing means no more full power art machine from Lenovo... Didn't you guys bothered to think that this wundermachine will ONLY HAVE 4GB OF RAM MAX?

    It's horrible fate that the only real proper art Tablet PC option left to us will be the $2000 Fujitsu T902... Great for Fujitsu, but horrible for those on the budget.

    Erm, in that table shown in the previous post, isn't that 4MB the Cache size? In other words, it tells us nothing about the maximum RAM that the chip supports?

    The thin and small form factor dictates that the RAM will be soldered on the motherboard. And that and the maximum density they currently use for DDR3 chip size also dictates that maximum ODMs will put on the mobo is 4GB of RAM.

    If you want more than 4GB of RAM, you will have to give up the thin form factor to allow a SODIMM slot. Something like the Sony VAIO Duo 11 would be smallest (up to 4GB soldered on the motherboard + one SODIMM slot).

    Well there is also the 12.5in Fuji T732, which if I am not mistaken is also using full voltage cpu, and wacom pen. Could be another option for those looking for more power than the ULV models.
