CES 2012: Demo of Lenovo's IdeaCentre A720 All-in-One PC

As well as announcing the ThinkPad Yoga device, at CES this week Lenovo also shared its IdeaCentre A720 All-in-One PC with us, an all-singing-all-dancing desktop computer that’s slim, light AND can lay flat like a huge tablet. Hmm you weren’t expecting that last bit were you?!

Measuring 27 inches diagonally, 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 Blu-ray drive. Just like the Yoga tablet, the IdeaCentre A720 also supports ten-finger multi-touch and it’s got a full HD screen at 1920 by 1200 pixels.

However, the A720 is also super flexible and it can stand tall like a regular all-in-one desktop machine, or it can be folded flat and used as a massive tabletop tablet device.

We got the chance to see a product demo of the IdeaCentre A720 with one of the team at Lenovo’s Aquaknox suite, which really showed off the device’s intuitive multi-touch screen and cool flexible design.

Shiny Shiny is attending CES as part of a press trip organised by Lenovo, (but just so you know, we only write about products that we think are genuinely awesome).

  • This is exactly what I desire from a potential all-in-one. Outfitting for the future. All these PC makers know that Windows 8 is coming out, and when it does (assuming nothing beats this out in its ergonomic pleasure as well as usability) this will be the ideal machine to run it on. Huge display, perfect for windows 8.
