Is it a tablet? Is it a table? Is it a computer? It’s all three! Technically. Lenovo recently unveiled its huge, massive and gargantuan IdeaCentre Horizon Tabletop PC. It looks like an oversized tablet for giants, but it’s actually an all-in-one PC that’s being marketed as a “tabletop” computer.
The device reminds us a lot of the early Microsoft Surface table, but it packs a much more affordable price and Windows 8. We’ve heard it will come in under $2,000 (closer to around the $1,600-$1,700 range) and packs an Intel Core i7 processor, a 27-inch backlit full HD 1920 x 1080 multitouch display, up to 2 hours of battery life (you’re not supposed to take this on the bus with you, ok?) a 1TB hard drive and up to 8GB of DDR memory.
We had a chance to play with the IdeaCentre briefly during CES 2013 and it’s quite an amazing device. We’re not sure who needs one in the house, but it could be an amazing piece of kit for showing off family photos, playing digital board games or even collaborating on projects at work.
