Lenovo has revealed the IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC, which becomes the company’s first "interpersonal PC."
Branded as a "multi-user, multi-touch, multi-mode device for the home", the company says the product allows users to turn their "personal computing experience into a shared computing experience."
As a Table PC, Horizon can lie flat on any surface, allowing two or more people to use the screen at the same time, while transforming into a 27-inch high-performance desktop to handle whatever productivity tasks users need to do.
“We've seen technology shifts across the four screens, from the desktop to the laptop, tablet and smartphone, and yet, while people have more computing power than ever before, there is still room for technologies like Horizon that bring people together," says Peter Hortensius, president, Product Group, Lenovo.
"Horizon makes personal computing interpersonal computing with shared, collaborative experiences among several people,”
“Now many people can enjoy different photos, music and video on the same screen, and they can play games with our special accessories that blend physical and digital interaction.
"Horizon reflects our commitment to delivering the innovative products that define the PC Plus era.”
The IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC will be available beginning in early summer through Lenovo business partners and www.lenovo.com. Prices start at approximately US$1,699.
