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:
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.
