    Great find, thanks!

    Is it just me, or does the bezel on that look super wide? Maybe just the camera angle.

    EDIT: The aspect ratio looks off too. I think maybe he just has the resolution in a non native format or something like that.

    Can someone take a pic of the pen in relation to another known tablet pc pen? or a pencil or something? I'm just trying to understand the ergonomics of it.

    Lenovo ThinkPad Helix First Look - YouTube

    At 1:25 in you can see the diameter of the pen appears to be a rough match for the diameter of the camera in the back of the Helix - soooo, super thin?

    That is my impression at least.

    By the way, I think the potential small size of the Wacom pen is considered by Wacom to be a feature they can offer to manufacturers like Lenovo over competitors, like N-trig.

    Does anyone know if the SSD is user replaceable? I already have a Crucial M4 mSATA 256GB SSD I'd rather use than the stock.

    Support docs would indicate that it is. Search back a few pages.
