Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Review

 

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 Review and Ratings

 

A clever yet functional design along with a separate, unique interface when the system is lying flat combine to make Lenovo's IdeaCentre Horizon tabletop PC worth a look for all-in-one shoppers.

Aura interface feels very first-generation ; Limited selection of ports ; Pedestrian resolution for 27-inch display

In the end, the price will be a barrier for many would-be Horizon owners. At $1,849, the system requires you to pay a premium, though Lenovo does say a similarly configured Core i7 model will be available at retail in June for $1,599. In the same vein,...
