TechSpot: Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon 27-inch All-in-One review

With all of the attention that tablets, ultrabooks and hybrids have received following the release of Windows 8, you’d be forgiven to let slip from memory an entirely different class of computer that has a lot to gain from Microsoft’s new touch-enabled operating system: the all-in-one.

This came to change with Windows 8 and the Metro interface, so with the evolution of Windows also came the evolution of the all-in-one, at least according to Lenovo.

Just controllers that rest on the screen and can be used as joystick input. Makes you wonder about what could happen if screens could get even more intelligent about detecting what's on them, right? Talk about a way to play card games.

Though god forbid it ever happens. People will go full derp about their monitors "watching them".

PixelSense can already detect what's on it.

I thought those joysticks were something to play 4-way air hockey with.

What's new with PixelSense? I haven't really heard much about it since they stopped calling it Surface.
