27-inch IdeaCentre Horizon windows 8 tablet is meant to be laid down on top of your coffee table for an evening of family fun. Over 5,000 apps are ready and linked via App Store. I am a bit reluctant to call it a tablet or a portable device, even if it does have a 2 hour battery. For one, 27-inch anything doesn’t fit any of my bags and dragging 6kg around isn’t much fun either. Inviting few of my buddies for Saturday’s friendly match of air hockey does sound intriguing though.
The back hinge mechanism support the weight nicely. In this position the IdeaCentre can be used for presentations, or wherever large screen may be useful. It is a full fetched Windows 8 machine with 1080p 10-point touchscreen and backed up by powerful Intel processor.
Here is a list of all Horizon’s available specs:
3rd Gen Intel Core i7 processor
Windows 8 Pro
27-inch backlit full-HD (1,920 x 1,080) multitouch display
Nvidia GeForce GT 620M 1GB graphics
8GB DDR3 RAM
1TB HDD; optional 64GB SSD
Stereo speakers with Dolby Home Theater v4
720p HD webcam
USB 3.0, 6-in-1 card reader, HDMI
Lenovo works on offering gaming accessories like joysticks and e-dice to go with this new tabletop. Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon will be available this summer for $1,699.
