Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Review

I would have to say one of the products I was most impressed by this January at CES was Lenovo’s 27-inch Tablet / All-in-One PC. Wait, why I am I calling it a tablet? Well because it is, unlike most larger all-in-one’s it actually has a battery so it does not need to be connected to power at all times. Being that it is a tablet the stand allows it to easily be put down flat for a full tablet-top tablet experience. Don’t worry though the Horizon is still made for getting work done too. It is packed with an Intel Core i7-3537U, NVIDIA GeForce GT620M, 8 GB of DDR3 memory, 1TB hard drive, 720p webcam, 802.11 b/g/n wireless and Bluetooth 4.0. Of course the unit is also one large 27-inch 1080p display! This is a product that can act as a simple work machine, family computer or even a touch-gaming device. Let’s check it out!

The IdeaCentre Horizon comes in a very large box that has a photo of the unit on the front. That really is about it except for a small sticker on the side of the box that has some of the specs of the system.

Opening the box up inside the Horizon and accessories are nicely protected. No one wants to receive this with a cracked screen! There are quite a few different accessories included with the Horizon. You have the power cable and AC adapter, wireless mouse and keyboard, 3 different gaming peripherals, cleaning cloth, driver and application cd and of course the user’s guide.
