I know it's only a desktop computer, but this thing really caught my attention. Announced recently at CES 2012, Lenovo's IdeaCentre A720 looks set to take the PC world by storm. A 27-inch, 10-point multi-touch display features a movable arm that travels easily from the vertical to the horizontal, morphing from a fully fledged desktop PC (like an iMac with touch added) into a complete surface tablet (the biggest tablet you're likely to find). Once science fiction, touchable technology has come of age.
Similar to HP's TouchSmart 610 but with a flexible and thin design, Lenovo's IdeaCentre A720 is just 25.4mm thick. Configurations include various Intel Core i processors, SSD support, a NVIDIA graphics card, up to 8GB of RAM, a maximum 1.8TB HDD, a blu-ray player/burner, USB 3 ports, a TV tuner, HDMI in and out, and a multi-card memory reader.
Imagine what this will be like with Microsoft's upcoming touch centric operating system Windows 8? This will replace my iMac when Lenovo release it April this year.
