A touch-enabled all-in-one running Windows 8 that doubles as a tabletop gaming machine is innovative and has a ton of potential on paper, but unfortunately the Horizon Table PC fell way short in realizing that potential. A slow 5,400 RPM hard drive that drags the entire system down, only two USB ports...

Part all-in-one, part tablet, the IdeaCentre Horizon folds flat into a unique family entertainment system. Build quality is high, but connectivity is poor and our sample also suffered from poor hard drive performance.

Tabletop PCs may not be fully ready for the mainstream, but this coffee-table-size version from Lenovo is fun to use, and doubles as a solid all-in-one desktop.

The demand for touchscreen apps and games will mean that the Horizon will become more useful over time. But when a pretty decent laptop costs around £800 and a tablet costs half as much, you have to question the benefit of fusing the two products on this scale.

Fortunately, the $1500 model we reviewed isn't Lenovo's only offering. The company sells three other designs with Core i7s that are still dual-core, Hyper-Threading-equipped, 17 W chips, but run at higher frequencies. There's even a version with an SSD cache. Just bear in mind that two of the four configurations don't come with batteries. Portability has its price, after all.

If you are game to try something different, the Lenovo Horizon is a good first attempt at merging a PC with your coffee table.

If Lenovo could prove to me that the software ecosystem for this kind of design was going to remain strong I would feel more comfortable recommending the Horizon to readers looking for a family-friendly all-in-one, but for now I think it is a bit more risk than I would take on without knowing 100% that this is what you want.

We’re clearly in the trial-and-error phase now, though. Like most sensible technology writers, I try to avoid gazing into my crystal ball to predict the future. But I’m going to go out on a limb here - I fear the ‘table PC’ may struggle to catch on.

On the bright side, you twist just a single oversized knob to remove and reattach the tablet to the cart. So it’s easy to use the Horizon as an all-in-one PC most of the time, and as a roll-away arcade system on game nights.

While, again, it’s not going to be easy for Lenovo to sell this machine on a large scale, its very existence stands as proof that the company is not amongst those that would make hardware builds just to be first to the concept. This computer is unique as well as robust: ready for the living room, the class room, ready for any odd game-friendly room in-between.

Now that I’ve tried the Horizon, I’d like a bigger display in my living room. But I wasn’t blown away by the game experience, and I wouldn’t want to pay $1,700 for it.

Lenovo's all-in-one offers a 27-inch 1080p touch screen, a slew of bundled accessories and fun for the entire family.

If you are looking for an all-in-one PC, Lenovo Horizon Table PC is a good option indeed. Packed with elegant UI and the 27-inch touch friendly display this PC is worth buying. The concept of Table PC isn’t new but it is undoubtedly one of the best executions of the concept ever seen, although, the reclined mode is not practically usable.

Every year at CES, technology gets bigger. We've seen 85-inch televisions, 6-inch phablets, and now Lenovo has upped the ante with an awesome touch-based monstrosity. Too big to be a tablet and too touch oriented to be your average all-in-one PC,...

While we were arguing about whether a 7-inch tablet is better than a 10-inch one, Lenovo has been working on something quite different. The Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC is a 27-inch 1080p touchscreen Windows 8 computer that wants to become the...

Tablet PCs need faster hardware and better operating system support to appeal to a mainstream audience. Intel’s new Haswell processors might provide the former, but Microsoft’s answer could take years to materialize.
