The CES Digital Experience showcase always plays host to some interesting new concoctions. It was there last year that we saw Lenovo's Yoga convertible laptop, which went on to become a shipping product following Windows 8's release.
Lenovo had another interesting design to show this year. Our own Scott Wasson, who's on the scene in Las Vegas, got up close and personal with the IdeaCentre Horizon, a fresh take on the convertible concept:
The Horizon isn't a tablet. It's a 27-inch all-in-one desktop that's designed to double as a tabletop PC, not unlike the original Microsoft Surface. This system runs Lenovo's Aurora tabletop interface, which lets users pinch, tap, and flick their way through photos and videos. Lenovo has also teamed up with game companies to bring tabletop games like Monopoly and air hockey to the device. Those games can be played with accessories (see above) including dice, air-hockey sliders, and joysticks that attach via suction cups.
If you'd like to see more, Lenovo has posted a video of the Horizon in action.
Scott was told the Horizon will be available this summer at prices ranging from $999 to $1,699, depending on the configuration. That sounds surprisingly affordable, considering Apple's non-touch-enabled 27-inch iMac starts at $1,799.
