Lenovo's stylish new compact Ideacentre 610S PC has a detachable projector

Desktop PCs don't have to be boring in their appearance and Lenovo's new Ideacentre 610S is stylish enough to go right in your living room. Announced at CES 2016, it's a compact, yet powerful, entertainment-focused PC that has some mild gaming appeal and a party piece in its detachable projector.

Squeezed into its 2.2-liter triangular body is a 6th-generation Intel Core i processor (up to Core i7), up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 2TB HDD or 128 SSD storage and an optional Nvidia GTX 750M graphics card. You've also got 802.11ac Wi-Fi, 4 x USB 3.0 ports, a 3-in-1 card reader, HDMI output and Bluetooth 4.0.

The projector can either sit on top of the main PC or it can be removed and used separately. There's even a tripod mount in the base. It's a 720p resolution micro projector that can project an image of 100-inches at a distance of 2.4m. It also has a 2w internal speaker, HDMI input and a solitary USB 2.0 port, too.

Pricing for the whole package, including the projector, is set to start at $849 with shipping to commence in June 2016.
