Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Cart review: Put your 27-inch tablet on wheels


The IdeaCentre Horizon weighs nearly 19 pounds. Lenovo's cart accessory renders it portable and suitable for electronic board games.

Roll easily ; Locking brakes on all four wheels ; Accessory tray ; Not ridiculously expensive

No simple height adjustment ; You need to hold the keyboard in your lap while using the tablet as an all-in-one PC ; Doesn't pivot into portrait mode for playing pinball sims

This cart is a very handy accessory for Lenovo's IdeaCentre Horizon, but you'll want to be aware of a couple design shortcomings before buying one.

Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon


The Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon is a huge 27-inch all-in-one desktop that you can carry around the house. Aside from the novelty, however, there are few reasons to recommend this system over a traditional all-in-one desktop.

Huge, clear screen. Aura interface is flashy and mostly useful. Ten-finger touch on a 1080p HD screen. Has battery for in-house portability. Sturdy stand. Comes with Monopoly and other touch games. Android app compatibility

Desperately needs a SSD+HDD setup. Heavy at 18 pounds. Bulky. Pricey. Only two USB 3.0 ports. Mobile components limit performance

The Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon ($1,849 list) is the largest of the portable all-in-one desktop PCs that we've seen. Its 27-inch screen houses the notebook-class components of a Windows 8 PC, in a large semi-portable desktop system. The system's touch...

Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon 27


Lenovo's all-in-one offers a 27-inch 1080p touch screen, a slew of bundled accessories and fun for the entire family.

Attractive design; Large 1080p touch-screen display; Aura interface engaging and intuitive; Full suite of family-centric apps and games; Bundled accessories enhance user experience; Better graphics performance than other portable all-in-ones

Wireless keyboard has undersized keys and shallow travel; Not very portable; A bit pricey

Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon 27 (Core i5)


Who would have thought that, rather than hybrid laptops or Windows 8 tablets, the most interesting new hardware trend in computers for 2013 would be tabletop PCs? That's an unofficial term I use to describe the growing number of systems that straddle...

The large screen and lie-flat design make the Lenovo Horizon 27 a fun family PC with lots of casual gaming potential. It includes several gaming accessories and has a custom user interface, Aura.

The heavy, clunky kickstand can get in the way, there's a little sluggishness with some of the software, and battery life is way too short for a game of Monopoly.

Tabletop PCs may not be fully ready for the mainstream, but this coffee-table-size version from Lenovo is fun to use, and doubles as a solid all-in-one desktop.

Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Review


When the iPad was released three years ago, some jokingly panned it for being too large. A 10-inch touchscreen device? Who would want to carry such a thing? Isn't it just a huge phone?

Excellent touch-optimized software ; Quality peripherals ; Display offers good image quality ; Works well as a table PC

Lack of third-party software support ; Display needs more pixels ; Poor performance ; Not a good value

Lenovo’s Horizon proves that the table PC can actually be fun, but a high price tag and poor performance limit its potential.

Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon 27 Review: Our First Table PC


The latest all-in-ones look a lot like huge tablets, right? An internal battery adds portability to Lenovo's 27” IdeaCentre Horizon, but is this cool concept still functional as a desktop, or does the push toward mobility sacrifice too much performance?

IdeaCentre Horizon


The IdeaCentre Horizon Multimode all-in-one PC has 10-point touchscreen functionality that allows you to use two hands while navigating the screen.

This PC has an HDMI-in connection that allows you to use the PC as an extra monitor or TV

Has very limited USB ports, so you won't be able to connect more than a couple external devices to the PC

The IdeaCentre Horizon Multimode offers a 27-inch widescreen that can be laid flat in order to play games with friends more comfortably.

Consumer review by:

"Looks great, lacks ports, touch screen didn't work"


I wouldn't buy until more people have tried this thing out to see how common the malfunctions are.

Beautiful machine with innovative features and nice specs.

-Must use dongle for wireless mouse so you really only have 1 USB free USB port
