Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon 27-57315058

65% Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon 27-Inch All-in-One Review
Source: Techspot English
Pros: Novel concept that we'd like to continue to develop. Decent graphics performance, ten-finger touch support, included touch-based games for use in tabletop mode with friends, internal battery for 'some' in-house portability. Cons: Slow hard drive, only two USB ports, heavy and bulky. Display could be better.

Video: Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC Review
Source: PC Perspective English
The Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon All-in-One machine is truly a unique beast. Coupling Ultrabook hardware with a 27-in 1080p 10-point touch screen display is common practice but enabling a tabletop mode with custom software to promote a multi-user environment is not. In my experience the Aura environment worked well and basic consumers will find it inviting and innovative. More experienced users will likely question the lack of integration with other key services like Facebook or Dropbox and the lack of access to a simple web browser in this mode is a sore spot.

80% Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon 27 Table PC Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon 27 Table PC truly reimagines family computing with its innovative Aura interface, large library of multiuser content and unique bundled accessories. The games are fun and at their best when four people are playing. And while it's not the most portable all-in-one, the Horizon 27 is also a very satisfying big-screen Windows 8 machine, thanks to its Core i7 processor and Nvidia GPU.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 620M:

Based on either the older 40nm GF108 chip or the newer 28nm GF117 Fermi die shrink. In either case, the 620M is most similar to a GT 525M and comes without dedicated display ports. Consequently, the GPU can only be used in conjunction with Optimus. 

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
