Very Big Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor
Across all the 2 in 1 laptops that were released around the same time as the Helix the maximum internal memory supported by processors range from 2GB to 32GB. When compared to other laptops of a similar spec and age to the Helix that we have checked, the Lenovo Helix's maximum internal memory supported by processor of 32 gigabytes is one of the biggest.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This portable PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many comparable spec laptops that are a similar age to it.
Lenovo Has Good Notebook PC Reviews
Lenovo 2 in 1 laptops have good ratings on average and across all portable PCs Lenovo is one of the better rated manufacturers.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
Across all the portable PCs of a comparable age and spec to the Helix the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 200MHz to 650MHz. At 350 megahertz, the Lenovo Helix has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other comparable spec portable PCs that were released more than two years ago.
1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
The Lenovo Helix has a maximum display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. That's 98% more display resolution than the most common display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.
This portable PC's display resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) is actually the best display resolution across all notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the Helix.
Across comparable types of portable PC the worst display resolution is 1024 x 768 pixels.
Has a Front Camera
Like most of the other portable PCs of a similar age and type to the Helix, the Lenovo Helix has a front camera.

+13 More reasons for
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The Lenovo Helix supports a faster memory clock speeds supported by processor than most 2 in 1 laptops that have been available for around the same time as it. This portable PC supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed, whereas most 2 in 1 laptops that are a comparable age to it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. In addition, this Lenovo laptop supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.
A 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed is in fact the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst all 2 in 1 laptops that were released around the same time as the Helix.
A 133MHz processor memory clock speed is the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst similar types of notebook PC.
SSD Storage Medium
This portable PC has an SSD storage medium, which is typical of many portable PCs of a similar age and spec to it. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other laptops that have an SSD storage media currently available including the Satellite U920t (£679.54), the Satellite U920t (£679.54), or the Satellite U920t (£767.65) all from Toshiba which is cheaper.
If you want a laptop with a better storage medium then you might want to look at the Lenovo Yoga 11S (£1,308.00) (SSD).
64-Bit Operating System Architecture
This notebook PC has a 64-bit operating system architecture, which is typical of many laptops of a similar age and spec to it.
L3 Processor Cache
This notebook PC has a L3 processor cache, which is the most commonly found processor cache on laptops of this type and age.
Very Big Maximum Internal Memory
When compared to other portable PCs of this spec and age, the maximum internal memory of the Lenovo Helix of 32,768 megabytes is one of the biggest. Laptops that have been around for around the same time as the Helix have maximum internal memories of between 2GB and 33GB.
802.11n WiFi Standard
This notebook PC has an 802.11a|802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is the most commonly found WiFi standard on notebook PCs that have been on the market for more than two years.
Two Mini DisplayPorts
The Lenovo Helix has more mini DisplayPorts than most of the 2 in 1 laptops that have been around for a similar time to the Helix. Most of the 2 in 1 laptops that came out around the same time as the Helix only have one mini DisplayPort, however this notebook PC has two mini DisplayPorts.
Fairly High Front Camera Resolution
The lowest front camera resolution of 2 in 1 laptops that are a comparable age to the Helix is 0.3MP, the highest is 1,300MP, and the average front camera resolution is 15MP. The Lenovo Helix has one of the higher front camera resolutions (5 megapixels) amongst laptops of this age.
Has a Touch Sensitive Screen
The Lenovo Helix has a touch sensitive screen. Most of the other 2 in 1 laptops that have been around for more than two years also have a touch sensitive screen.
We compared all the other laptops which also have a touch sensitive screen to this laptop and we think the Yoga 2 11, the Flex 14, or the Flex 2 all from Lenovo is also worth considering.
Quite Big Cache Memory
The smallest cache memory of 2 in 1 laptops that were released more than two years ago is 1MB and the biggest is 4MB. The Lenovo Helix has a quite big cache memory (3 megabytes) compared to most of the other 2 in 1 laptops that were released around the same time as the Helix.

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard
Most laptops of this spec and age do not have a full-size keyboard. The Lenovo Helix is no exception to this as it too does not have a full-size keyboard.
We compared this notebook PC to all the other laptops with a full-size keyboard and we think the Helix (£970.00), or the Helix both from Lenovo or the HP Pro X2 612 F1P90EA is also worth considering.
Quite Small Internal Memory
