The fact that CES is yet to begin hasn’t dawned on Lenovo, which has announced a new ThinkPad Helix and a Windows 8 Pro version of the Yoga 11, it calls the Yoga 11S. The ThinkPad Helix gives a new twist to the usually “boring” ThinkPad series with the display detaching from the keyboard to function as a tablet. That’s not all, as users can even attach the display backwards and the keyboard acts like a stand for the tablet. Of course, users can flip the display down in this mode and use it as a slate with all the connectivity options and ports on the base available to use.

Lenovo claims the ThinkPad Helix would give up to 10 hours of battery life. The 11.6-inch, 1080p resolution IPS display is one of the brightest that Lenovo has ever put on a ThinkPad. Stand-alone, the tablet weighs 835 grams. It also features NFC and runs on Intel’s third generation core processors. The ThinkPad Helix will be available in February starting from $1,499 onwards.

The IdeaPad Yoga 11S is similar to the IdeaPad Yoga 11 that Intel had launched last year. The major difference being that this one runs on a third generation Intel Core i5 processor rather than an ARM processor and runs Windows 8 and not Windows RT. Apart from having a 11.6-inch HD IPS display, the rest remains more or less the same as the Yoga 13. The IdeaPad Yoga 11S will be available in June starting from $799.
