Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC

Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC

Lenovo today announced a multi-user, multi-touch, multi-mode, 27-inch touchscreen PC for the home that can lay on a table or be used vertically like a regular desktop PC, thanks to a built-in kickstand. The company is calling the new IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC the world’s first “interpersonal PC.”

The Table PC can lie flat on any surface, lets two or more people use the screen at the same time, supports interactive physical gaming accessories and is designed for touch screen game-play among several players. Horizon takes advantage of Windows 8 touch functionality to bring customized games from Electronic Arts and Ubisoft to life in a way players have never before seen. Horizon can also easily transform into a 27-inch high-performance desktop to handle whatever productivity tasks users need to do.

With Horizon’s smart hinge system, users can easily lay it flat and in so doing, the Lenovo Aura multi-user, multi-touch interface (UI) will automatically activate. This simple UI lets families play, learn or enjoy multimedia content together on one screen. Aura also serves as a great way to launch pre-loaded gaming and educational apps or download new ones from the online app store.

In addition, Horizon performs beautifully as a family’s main all-in-one desktop for work and play. Its impressive large backlit screen can be seen from virtually any angle and its NVIDIA GeForce graphics make content look gorgeous with smooth and seamless video playback, eye-popping graphics and heart-pounding Dolby Home Theatre v4 audio. To support such a command performance, Horizon is powered by Intel Core i7 processors.

As an option, Horizon offers a moveable and space-saving Horizon Multimode Table. This adjustable table allows users to change the angle and height position of the Table PC, from lying flat to a straight-up, ‘wall-like mount’ at 90 degrees. Lenovo offers an array of protection services for the Horizon Table PC, including In- Home Warranty upgrades for service at the owner’s home or business and up to three years of warranty coverage. Additionally, Lenovo Premium Support’s expert technicians are available when needed with convenient over the phone or remote session support from the comfort of home.

IdeaCentre Horizon Accessories

Horizon brings multi-player games to life with its gigantic screen, dynamic graphics and 10-finger touch. It comes with a special set of accessories including an e-dice and four joysticks and strikers to offer a completely new digital gaming experience that combines the physical gaming accessory with the on-screen action. For the player, the action is part physical, part digital – an activity that Lenovo refers to as “phygital.”
