Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Review

Getting the Horizon setup to use is pretty easy. Just place it on a desk or large surface, plug it in and you are good to go. Lenovo does include a keyboard and mouse, but since the Horizon is loaded with Windows 8 using the touchscreen works just as well. The large 27-inch display does give you a lot of room to work with. You can easily have many different applications open at once.

The hardware inside is more than powerful enough that doing multiple things at once does not slow the system down at all. The touchscreen is very responsive and since it is 10-finger touch you can take advantage of apps and games that have a multi-touch interface. There are speakers on the Horizon, but they are on the back of the unit. The are pretty loud, but nothing that impressive.

The thing that sets the Horizon apart from other all-in-one systems is that the stand allows you to fold it down and make it a tabletop “surface” computer. When you fold the Horizon down Aura will automatically load. This is Lenovo’s tabletop interface that allows you to easily load and view media, play games and much more.
