Lenovo Horizon 2e

 

Lenovo's Horizon 2e works out many of the kinks of the previous generation of portable all-in-one desktop PCs, and does so at an attractive price point.

Under $750. HDMI-in jack. 802.11ac Wi-Fi and NFC. Very little bloatware.

Bulky. 4GB of memory. Hard drive rather than solid-state drive.

The Lenovo Horizon 2e is a very good second-generation, portable all-in-one desktop for a very good price, and it should be on your short list if you're shopping for an innovative desktop PC that can be moved from room to room while still running. That...

Lenovo Horizon 2e-F0AS0014US AIO Review

 

Portable AIO. Lenovo's Horizon 2e is a 21.5-inch All-in-One (AIO) system. Thanks to an integrated battery, the "2-in-1 tabletop PC", as Lenovo calls it, is portable enough so it can be toted from room to room as well. What else does the jumbo-sized...

non-glare (IPS) display with good viewing angle stability, touchscreen responds well, compact design, integrated stand, very quiet, 3x USB 3.0, Interesting Aura software interface

low screen brightness, bulky and heavy, battery life not great, bundled keyboard flexes too much, limited number of screen resolutions, slow conventional hard drive

Lenovo's Horizon 2e is an interesting All-In-One design. The system is best used in a home setting, since moving it longer distances is a bit of a chore due to the size and weight. Unfortunately, we can't really comment on how well the system works as...

Lenovo Horizon 2e Review: A Great All-In-One With Cool Features

 

The Table PC form factor was a new one for me. How does it run? Keep reading for my Lenovo Horizon 2e Review.

Great display, responsive touchscreen, AURA is really cool

Erratic mouse scrolling, AURA is awesome, but loads kind of slowly

Lenovo Horizon 2e: The Desktop for the family [Review]

 

All in one machines have now pretty much become the norm since the iMac changed the game. They're getting thinner, lighter and the designs are getting bolder. Every PC manufacturer has come to the table with their version of an all in one machine and...

Lenovo Horizon 2e Review and Ratings

 

The most affordable of Lenovo's portable all-in-ones, the Horizon 2e gets closer to the ideal table PC than the company's prior attempts and boasts innovative software. But it's still a bit heavy and short on battery life.

Aura interface shows promise of table PC concept ; Innovative connection options to Android devices

Short battery life ; So-so performance ; Heavier than competing models

We're willing to overlook the Horizon 2e's lackluster benchmark scores because they're right in line with what we expected. More to the point, the system provides enough muscle for basic home use and for a smooth and responsive experience with the Aura...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Excellent All in One

 

I would recommend this product to anyone, its a great value.

This is a large computer that takes little room on your desk, speedy and love the touch screen. I appreciate the portability of it, I can grab it and take it to my kitchen to work, play music or find a recipe as it has a battery like a laptop

This product is much too big and heavy to use like a massive tablet, its too heavy and cumbersome

I like it a lot

 

I needed a new computer that was capable of running a small business. This pretty much does all I need it to do. The processor is all I need it to be. It actually exceeds my needs. I've been running off of windows 7 for quite a few years, so dealing...
