Lenovo has announced that its new IdeaCentre A720 all-in-one (AIO) desktop computer is launching today. The machine has a 27-inch screen and supports 10-point multi-touch interaction. The screen stand has an integrated hinge that allows adjustment of screen angle from -5° to 90°.
That means the user can move the screen from vertical to a horizontal position and everywhere in between. That's important because some applications are better used with the display flat, and others are easier to use with the screen in a more traditional up-and-down position.
“As the number one provider of consumer desktop PCs worldwide, Lenovo prides itself in pushing the design and performance envelope to provide users with the best possible computing experience,” said Victor Rios, vice president, Idea Product Group Business Operations, Lenovo. “The IdeaCentre A720 takes touch computing to the next level thanks to its unique hinge for angled viewing and multi-touch capability, and svelte, powerful design.”
The IdeaCentre A720 is under an inch thick at 24.5 mm and has a frameless display. The machine uses the latest Intel Core processors and has NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M inside. The machine can be had with up to 1 TB of storage space via a traditional hard drive or up to 64 GB of SSD storage. The machine also has integrated Dolby Home Theater V4 audio and a Lenovo 720p HD Webcam. It can also be optioned with up to 8 GB of DDR3 RAM and it runs Windows 7 Home Premium.
The IdeaCentre A720 also has an integrated TV tuner and includes a thin wireless keyboard and mouse. Lenovo also equips machine with a suite of touch optimized applications and games.
The IdeaCentre A720 AIO is available right now at $1849 via Lenovo.com. Earlier this month Lenovo launched a new ultrabook and notebook models.
