ThinkPad Helix Gen 2Features
Intel® Core™ M and Intel® Core™ M vPro™ ProcessorsThese processors deliver the performance to increase productivity for your business. Devices turn on in an instant and are always up-to-date. You can multitask quickly, move effortlessly between applications, and collaborate wirelessly in a high quality videoconference — all with the convenience of longer battery life. Plus, you can guard against identity theft and ensure safe access to your network with built-in security features. In fact, the only thing more amazing than an Intel Core processor-based PC, is what you will do with it.
Windows 8.1Built for business. Built for life. The new Windows brings together everything you do across all your devices — whether at home, at work, or on the go. With Windows 8.1 Pro, you get everything in Windows 8.1, plus enhanced security features like trusted boot, improved biometric support, backup to SkyDrive, anti-malware, device encryption, and remote business data removal, as well as simplified technology like tap to print, auto-triggered VPN, SkyDrive integration, and more.
2-in-1 Form FactorUse your helix as a Tablet or snap it into an external keyboard to use it as a fully capable Laptop PC. Should you want to use it as a Desktop, simply attach it to a dock for use with a larger monitor, full-sized mouse and keyboard, etc. Get adaptability on your terms.

Digitizer Pen SupportIn all five modes, the digitizer pen performs capacitive touchscreen functions — swipe, drag, open, click — with precise control, and converts your handwriting into digital text. It provides a natural, fluid writing experience and lets you take notes, sign documents, annotate PDFs, and more.
