We've been given another opportunity to get right in deep with Lenovo's newest convertible tablet running full Windows 8: the ThinkPad Helix, and this time we're making a point of checking out not just the ripping and the flipping, but the spoiler on the back and the precision ruined craftsmanship as well.
