Remember the ThinkPad Helix? We told you about it just before the Consumer Electronics Show. At the time, Lenovo said the system would hit stores in the middle of this month.
Well, bad news: it's been delayed. CNet News reports that Lenovo's new schedule calls for the ThinkPad Helix to ship in "early March." Apparently, the PC maker isn't even quoting an availability time frame anymore. The only extra tidbit CNet could glean is that the ThinkPad Helix "will be sold worldwide," with availability to "vary by country."
The Helix is a convertible Windows 8 tablet with an 11.6" 1080p IPS screen, an Ivy Bridge processor, and a hinged keyboard dock that allows the screen to face either way. Lenovo demonstrated that capability last month in the world's cheesiest product tour video:
Duh-duh-duh-duh-dum. You, too, can be a middle-aged male model trying to look super-serious in a business suit.
In all seriousness, this looks like a pretty slick machine, and it's a shame Lenovo's schedule slipped. Just make sure you save up for the retail release—CNet News says pricing will start at a hefty $1,499.
