At CES, Lenovo just announced plans to release the IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC. This is a massive 17.8 pound, 27-inch all-in-one Windows 8 PC/Tablet that can also be laid flat.

The Horizon reminds me more of the original Microsoft Surface which was a large table. When laid flat, it activates a special user interface called Aura that is designed for usage in that mode. Battery life is estimated to be 2 hours.


The Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC will also come with its own app download store. This will be fun to see, I am wondering why they didn’t just go with the Microsoft app store and what all this Aura stuff is about.

Hardware wise, it has Intel’s Core i7 processor and will have a NVIDIA GeForce GT 620M graphics chip inside with 1 GB of RAM.

The PC will also support up to 8 GB of memory and up to 1 TB of hard drive storage, with an option to add a 64 GB SSD.

The screen itself supports up to 1920×1080 resolution. Other features include a integrated webcam and a 6-in-1 card reader.

It will be available this summer for around $1699.
