I would have to say one of the products I was most impressed by this January at CES was Lenovo’s 27-inch Tablet / All-in-One PC. Wait, why I am I calling it a tablet? Well because it is, unlike most larger all-in-one’s it actually has a battery so it does not need to be connected to power at all times. Being that it is a tablet the stand allows it to easily be put down flat for a full tablet-top tablet experience. Don’t worry though the Horizon is still made for getting work done too. It is packed with an Intel Core i7-3537U, NVIDIA GeForce GT620M, 8 GB of DDR3 memory, 1TB hard drive, 720p webcam, 802.11 b/g/n wireless and Bluetooth 4.0.
