The announcement of the Lenovo Table PC will certainly confuse a few people, as they would assume that it’s a giant tablet, but Lenovo’s new Horizon 27-inch table PC is clearly designed not to be portable, one because of its size and secondly because of rumored its 2 hour battery life. However, we still have to admire what looks to be a great multiuser device that will run the Windows 8 operating system.
Even though the 27-inch Lenovo Table computer will run on Windows 8, this will need to be built on top of Lenovo’s custom user interface, which they have named Aura. We’re told that this UI is intuitive, but many aspects of the software will have that familiar Windows 8 look and feel.
The moment that you see this 27-inch Table PC in person you will think that it’s a monstrosity, and while it will be confined to your home or place of work, you can still pick it up and move it around, allowing for greater freedom than you get from your desktop PC, which one assumes is one of the key areas how Lenovo will market their Horizon 27-inch table PC.
We’re told that the new table PC will be ideal for gaming thanks to its size and easy focal point because it looks very much like a contemporary coffee table. For example, Lenovo will throw in a pair of plastic strikers, which will allow you to play the most up-to-date version of air hockey yet. You’ve been able to play such a game on the iPad, but this will be a whole new ball game on a device that is said to be 8 times the size of the iPad.
However, the Lenovo Horizon 27-inch table PC price will reflect on this, although $1,699 doesn’t seem that expensive when you consider the size difference. Instead of listing the main features of this device, which is on show at CES 2013, we thought it would be far better for you to watch a video preview of the Horizon 27 instead.
