27-Inch Lenovo Table PC Released in the US

Back at the 2013 edition of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2013), which took place in January, Lenovo revealed the very odd and very large IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC for the first time. 

Now, the company has officially released it in the United States, where it sells for a starting price of $1,699 / €1,289. 

Since there already seemed to be plenty of 10.1-inch and 7-inch tablets on the market, Lenovo made something different. 

We should emphasize the distinction: this is a table PC not a tablet PC, by virtue of its size: 27 inches in diagonal. 

“Horizon stole the show at CES because it introduced people to a new way of thinking about computing - one that makes the experience shared, collaborative and personal,” said Jay Parker, president of Lenovo North America, referencing the 14 awards the device won at CES 2013. 

“We’re thrilled to be bringing the IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC to customers around the world this spring and seeing the unique ways consumers incorporate it into their homes, work and play.” 

IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC, as a family device, is good for watching movies and, more importantly, playing games via touch input or with the included joysticks, strikers, and e-dice. 

Automatic brightness adjustment is accomplished thanks to the Lenovo Eye Distancing System, while Dolby Home Theatree v4 audio and an Nvidia GeForce graphics card provide the visual and audio capabilities. 

All in all, there are plenty of things to keep buyers occupied. This definitely isn't just a dry Core i7-based all-in-one computer with a single unusual asset (the ability to lay flat on its back whenever required). 

And as if this all weren't enough, Lenovo is preparing a 39-inch Table PC as well. No word on when, where and for what price it will arrive though. Alas..
