ThinkPad Helix 2

The successor to the ThinkPad Helix is coming! And it will feature dedicated buttons for the TrackPad. This is very good news!

The ThinkPad Helix 2 will feature a Broadwell Core M CPU. It will be a fanless design unlike its predecessor which had a fan inside the tablet and on the keyboard dock. But they tended to be a bit noisy as I pointed out in the review of the ThinkPad Helix earlier.
