Lenovo Horizon 2 AIO Desktop Computer Review
By David Ramsey
Full Disclosure: Lenovo provided the product sample used in this article, but we had to give it back.
The desktop computer is changing, acquiring hardware and software features first seen on mobile devices. As Microsoft works to unify the Windows experience across everything from phones to desktops, vendors work to make their desktops work more like phones, with integrated all-in-one designs, touch screens, and new user interfaces. Today Benchmark Reviews looks at Lenovo’s latest entry in this evolving category, the Horizon 2 All-In-One PC.
The Horizon 2 is an all-in-one computer: except for the mouse and keyboard, all the computer hardware is built into the slim 27″ display. A smoothly-pivoting stand lets you adjust the screen to any angle from almost straight up to flat down.
Lenovo calls the Horizon series of machines “table computers”. Well, what is a table computer, why would you want one, and how well do they work? After we get through with the specifications, we’ll try to figure that out.
