The Lenovo Helix was one of the more interesting concepts weve seen in the ongoing effort to merge tablets and laptops, but it suffered from some design implementation issues and a high price point. Lenovos trying to fix both of those issues with the a newly-updated Lenovo Helix model — while the tablet portion still weighs in at a somewhat-hefty 1.8 pounds, its now 15 percent thinner than its predecessor. Hopefully thatll help with the somewhat top-heavy awkwardness we felt when using the original Helix. Rather than use full Intel Core i5 or i7 processors like the original Helix, the new model will run on Intels new fanless Core M platform — something that Lenovo says will allow the Helix achieve 12 hours of battery life.
