Overview
  • 1Description

The IdeaCentre Horizon 27" Multi-Touch All-in-One Desktop Computer from Lenovo features a 27" touchscreen with 10-point touch support, which allows you to utilize the multi-touch gestures incorporated into Windows 8. The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio and a Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution powered by a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GT 620M graphics card with 2GB of discrete memory.

The Lenovo Horizon is an all-in-one desktop computer, but it also has a built-in 8-cell lithium-polymer battery so you're not tethered to the power outlet on the wall. With up to 2 hours on a single charge (battery life will vary dependent on usage), you'll be able to move around the home or office without having to shut down and reboot your computer. When you're running low on battery life, you can just plug the Lenovo Horizon into a power outlet to start charging without interrupting your computing experience.

The system is powered by a dual-core Ivy Bridge 2.0GHz Intel Core i7-3537U processor. It also has 8GB of DDR3 RAM, a 1TB 5400rpm hard drive, a 6-in-1 media card reader, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, an integrated webcam, an integrated microphone and built-in stereo speakers with Dolby Home Theater v4 audio enhancement. A wireless keyboard and mouse are also included.

The Lenovo Horizon comes with the Windows 8 (64-bit) operating system. Windows 8 has a completely redesigned user interface. Instead of being greeted by the usual Start button and taskbar, Windows 8 introduces the Start screen. The Start screen features live tiles, which contain content that update in real time. Windows 8 also seamlessly integrates multi-touch controls with keyboard and mouse use. You can use the traditional tactile keyboard to type and the mouse to navigate through Windows 8 or you can use the virtual touch keyboard as well as multi-touch gestures, such as swipe, drag and tap.

Lenovo Horizon

Multi-Mode Form Factor
The Lenovo Horizon is not just an all-in-one desktop computer, it can also be used as a large tablet or a table PC. With a built-in battery, you can be unplugged for up to 2 hours on a single charge (battery life may vary depending on usage). You can use the built-in stand to have it upright like an all-in-one desktop computer or lay it flat parallel to a table so multiple users can interact with the screen. You can also play games with multiple people with the two strikers, two joysticks and e-dice
Aura Interface
Two or more users can simultaneously access content via the Aura interface, which shows up when the Lenovo Horizon is laid flat and turns into a table PC. Aura turns the Lenovo Horizon from an all-in-one desktop computer into a multimedia table PC where you can play games, enjoy fun apps and experience multimedia with multiple users
Dual-Core Ivy Bridge Intel Core i7 Performance
The Lenovo Horizon houses an Ivy Bridge Intel Core i7-3537U processor. Its dual cores can reach a stock speed of 2.0GHz. The processor can also be overclocked up to up to 3.1GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 620M Graphics
The Lenovo Horizon has a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GT 620M graphics card with 2GB of discrete memory.

Wireless Connectivity

The integrated front-facing webcam and integrated microphone lets you video chat with friends and family with ease
Dolby Home Theater v4

USB 3.0
USB 3.0 can reach a data transfer speed of 5Gbps, which is 10 times faster than USB 2.0. Also, USB 3.0 is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 so you can still use your older USB-compatible devices

Windows 8

The Redesigned Start Screen
Windows 8 introduces a new Start screen, which has all the information you need in one place. The traditional Windows desktop screen has been replaced with a more tablet style design featuring tiles. These tiles are customizable to your liking and also update in real time. News, weather forecasts, sports, contacts, apps and more are available for you to use. It's all right there on the Start screen
Seamless Integration of Multi-Touch Gestures
Windows 8 supports multi-touch gestures. Now, you can use your keyboard, mouse or the touchpad using simple gestures. Whether you're browsing apps, reading a book or typing on the go with touch, you'll be able to seamlessly switch between all three interactive components. With the touchpad, Windows 8 allows you to use multi-touch gestures, such as swipe, drag, tap, slide, pinch-to-zoom and more
To the Cloud
With Windows 8, you'll be able to bring all your personalized Start screens with you by signing into your Microsoft account. When signed in using your Microsoft account, you'll have instant access to your own Start screen, themes, language preferences, browsing history and browser favorites. You can also connect to services such as Microsoft Outlook, Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and more
Windows Store
In the Windows Store, you can search for or browse thousands of apps. Choose from the featured apps or grab one of the most frequently downloaded apps to see what all the hype is about. You can also see how other people rate apps. For certain apps, you can try it out before you buy it so you can make sure you absolutely want an app before you spend your hard-earned money on it
