The Weirdest Thing From CES Yet: A 27-Inch, 17-Pound, $1700 Table Computer

Over at the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas, Chinese computer-maker Lenovo is about to introduce something ridiculous.

It’s called the Horizon. It’s a 27-inch, 17 pound, $1,700 “table PC.” It looks like a monster:

All Things D’s Liz Gannes reports the internals: 

Called the IdeaCentre Horizon, this Windows 8 table PC (table tablet? coffee-table computer?) is running on a third-generation Core i7 processor with Nvidia GeForce graphics. It has a full HD, multi-touch touchscreen display with a 16 by 9 aspect ratio. There’s a 720p front-facing camera for Web video chats.

Who knows. Maybe it’ll take off.

Samsung’s awkward not-a-phone/not-a-tablet Galaxy Note seemed like a clunker when it came out, and now there’s a whole category of devices built in its likeness.
