Just ahead of IFA 2014 , Lenovo has introduced several new products, among them being the new 2-in-1 ThinkPad Helix. The Helix is an ultrabook targeted at business users that can be transformed into a tablet when needed. The ultrabook has many bragging rights, among them being that it is 15-percent thinner than the previous version. The new ThinkPad Helix features an Intel Core M processor and battery life that is 60-percent higher than the previous version at 12 hours on a charge. This is joined by an aluminum design promised to be "grip-friendly" and made to meet the style needs of business users.

The machine offers an 11.6-inch display (Full HD and Gorilla Glass), a digitizer pen, and five modes: tent, stand, tablet, laptop, and desktop.

Whenever Apple announces an upcoming event, one of favorite pastimes of tech bloggers is to " Zapruder " the invitation -- in other words, analyze the heck out of the design and wording of the invitation.
