Here is a good news for anyone who wants a desktop PC, but also a bad news for Apple. Lenovo unveiled a 27-inch all-In-One desktop machine that supports 10-finger capacitive multitouch! That’s very enough since Lenovo won’t expect anyone to have 11 fingers. What’s more? The screen can be adjusted as flat as Microsoft Surface, which works like a “Giant Tablet”. We wonder why didn’t Apple add these features to their iMac? Watch the video to see how this amazingly cool hybrid works after the break.
The specs? It packs in a Core-i7 Sandy Bridge CPU, 8GB of RAM, up to 1.8TB of storage space (with SSD options), a 2GB discrete graphics card and a slot-loading Blu-ray drive. The screen has a maximum resolution of 1920 by 1200 pixels, and it is more responsive than the IR technology used in other touchscreen all-in-ones, such as HP’s Touchsmart. It can slide down at an angle to make onscreen typing more convenient, or like a touch-table for playing touch-enabled games. Lenovo expects to start shipping the A720 in the first half of 2012 at an estimated $1300. Lenovo also unveiled their new IdeaPad Yoga convertible ultrabook that converts from notebook into tablet today.
The build quality of A720 is impressive. Its weight seems a bit on the heavy side, but the aluminum chassis is gorgeous, giving us a solid and premium feel. Moreover, A720 comes bundled with a wireless keyboard, which looks very similar to Apple wireless keyboard. However, it is made by plastic peripherals, which seems a bit awkward when putting it in front of the gigantic metal beauty.
