Interestingly, this first-of-its-kind device by the Chinese electronics giant company is a coffee table computer can lie flat on any surface, and can be used vertically like a regular desktop PC. Since it has a built-in stand, it can be used by several people at the same time. It is now being dubbed as the world’s first “interpersonal PC.”
Among the key features of this IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC include a multi-touch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. It is powered by the Intel Core i7 Ivy Bridge processor that runs Windows 8 Professional, and sports a Nvidia GeForce GT 620M card with 1GB of memory.
In addition, it has 8GB of RAM, with up to 1TB of hard disk space and an optional 64GB SSD. Other features include Bluetooth and 802.11n, 720p webcam, stereo speakers with Dolby Home Theater v4, 6-in-1 media reader, and a USB 3.0 support.
“We’ve seen technology shifts across the four screens, from the desktop to the laptop, tablet, and smartphone, and yet, while people have more computing power than ever before, there is still room for technologies like Horizon that bring people together.” Lenovo Product Group President Peter Hortensius was quoted at Lenovo.com.
“Horizon makes personal computing interpersonal computing with shared, collaborative experiences among several people. Now many people can enjoy different photos, music and video on the same screen, and they can play games with our special accessories that blend physical and digital interaction.” Hortensius added.
Lenovo also noted that this Horizon Table PC includes Lenovo App Shop, a dedicated apps store powered by Intel AppUp, which allows users to access to more than 5,000 multi-user entertainment apps.
