At the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) on January 6, Chinese electronics giant Lenovo debuted an equally giant touchscreen, all-in-one PC that doubles as the world’s largest tablet, with a massive 27 inch display.
At first glance, it looks like a regular all-in-one machine in the vein of the iMac: It’s a 27-inch screen with the innards of a Windows 8 computer built into it, and it can stand up on a table.
But you can pick it up off the table, unhook the power cord and lay it flat for games such as “Monopoly”. It’s big enough to fit four people around it, and the screen can respond to ten fingers touching it at the same time.
As a tablet, it’s a monstrosity. The screen is the size of eight iPads stitched together, and it weighs 6.8kg. It’s almost as homebound as a flat-panel TV.
