Lenovo has launched the IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC in the US, allowing up to four people to use the 27-inch display for multimedia and games.

 
The huge touchscreen is part of a new category of devices that Lenovo is calling “table PCs,” distinct from the considerably smaller and more portable tablet computers that are currently dominating the industry.
 
The Horizon is designed as a family device, bringing multiple people together to enjoy digital content simultaneously, whether it is viewing photos, watching movies, or playing games. Lenovo has included a number of peripherals, such as joysticks, strikers, and e-dice, the latter of which can be used in board games, such as EA's Monopoly.

The device can also double as an all-in-one desktop computer, powered by an Intel Core i7 processor, Nvidia GeForce graphics card, and Dolby Home Theatree v4 audio. Lenovo Eye Distancing System automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen when users get too close, and Windows 8 is included with 10-finger touch support.
 
“Horizon stole the show at CES because it introduced people to a new way of thinking about computing – one that makes the experience shared, collaborative and personal,” said Jay Parker, president of Lenovo North America, referencing the 14 awards the device won at CES 2013. “We’re thrilled to be bringing the IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC to customers around the world this spring and seeing the unique ways consumers incorporate it into their homes, work and play.”
 
The IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC has a starting price of $1,699. It is available immediately through Lenovo's website and will be in stores in late June. The company is also working on 39-inch Table PC, which better lives up to the name.
