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.

That looks nice & removes the need for a monitor.
As far as desktop PCs go - is it on the heavier side?
2.2 litre?? Lol
Very cool idea. I wish it would have a higher resolution on the projector, but this takes htpc to another level. Not bad starting price, though I wonder what processor comes with the base, i3?
It's pretty cool, but hopefully I is small enough to be easily carried around in lets say a laptop bag.
Ha, Lenovo is on an innovative roll this year. Very well done Lenovo!! Leading the path of OEMs.
