My System Specs

Yeah I had one of those for the night (took it from work). It was intended for the exec's, but of course, we had to do some "QA" first

It's not bad, but the keyboard dock is a total write-off. I don't know who thought that hinge design was a good idea. Likewise, the tablet gets ridiculously hot. I could barely hold it after installing some software.

Battery life (in tablet-only) was only like 3h too. I think the Helix could be decent with Haswell and an updated keyboard dock.

It still isn't "the one".
