Lenovo reveals new 19.5-inch and 21.5-inch Horizon Windows 8.1 'tabletop' PCs

Lenovo's Horizon line of 'tabletop' touchscreen Windows 8.1 PCs that can also be used as a really huge stand alone tablet will be getting two new models soon, the 19.5-inch Horizon 2s, and the 21.5-inch Horizon 2e.

The Horizon 2s is just 0.59-inches thick and weighs just over five pounds, which is 10 pounds lighter than the original Horizon 2 that we got to check out at CES 2014 in January. The Horizon 2e has been made to be a more affordable tabletop PC. Both of the new models can be set up to stand on a table or be laid flat on a table or floor. When not connected to a power source, the battery will last up to 2.5 hours on the 2s and three hours on the 2e,

Lenovo says:

"Both models include Lenovo's advanced Aura multi-user interface that allows two or more people to access their individual photos, videos and music together on the same screen. Aura now works even better with Android devices. Users can pair up to four Android devices at one time for quick access to media from their Android smartphone, tablet or other device directly on the PC's FHD display. When it's time to work, an optional premium aluminum stand accessory serves as a charging station with the HORIZON 2s placed at a comfortable height for long term use in Stand Mode."

Both of the new Horizon PCs will go on sale in October. The Horizon 2s will have a starting price of $849 while the 2e will be priced starting at $749. What do you think of these two new Horizon models?
