    It will be the summer before this things is released if they wait for Haswell chips.

    Most sites are pegging a March-June timeframe for Haswell product release. With benchmarks already being leaked I would expect many Haswell devices to be announced at CES and released around March. Considering there is no pre-order or even info page available for the Helix yet, it looks to blend nicely.

    I'm a kind of glass half-empty sort of person.

    Considering that Clover Trail Atom devices, which were supposed to have been abundantly available in October for the Windows 8 launch, are still limping their way to the market; I have little confidence that Intel will do any better for Haswell.

    hopefully this will be not the case. After all, Intel has bet heavily on the ulv cpu recently.

    I think that Helix will not use Haswell. It will use the new 10w Ivy CPUs, which will be released in Q1 2013.

    Here a picture of the ports of Helix itself:

    The more I see of this Hybrid, the more I like it.

    Mine is scheduled for delivery on Jan. 3. I have seen others post that the delivery was earlier.

    Someone must have received one by now. Fill us in and give us at least a mini review.

    I took the picture and the table itself from the chinese manual and replaced the Chinese signs with the English translation. ;)

    @mobilelawyer,
    I think you are in the wrong thread. :p-
