Slim Is In, 27-Inch IdeaCentre A720 All-In-One Unveiled in South Africa
From fully upright to completely flat, the A720 AIO is designed for customized comfort at any angle
South Africa – June 28, 2012: Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) today announced its IdeaCentre A720 All-In-One (AIO) desktop, the world’s slimmest AIO.
The new IdeaCentre A720 AIO, features a whopping 27-inch screen that takes computing to a futuristic new level. Not only does the desktop’s razor-thin screen boast 10-point multi-touch, but it has a hinge for comfortable use and viewing from angles varying from -5o to 90o. Whether the application or program is best used with an upright, angled or completely flat computer screen, the A720 obliges in a stylish form factor.
“As the number one provider of consumer desktop PCs worldwide, Lenovo prides itself in pushing the design and performance envelope to provide users with the best possible computing experience,” said Jack Lee, General Manager MEA, Lenovo. “The IdeaCentre A720 takes touch computing to the next level thanks to its unique hinge for angled viewing and multi-touch capability, and svelte, powerful design.”
IdeaCentre A720: Flexible and Stylish Touch Computing for the Digital Home
As the industry’s slimmest 27” all-in-one and sporting a sleek metal exterior, the IdeaCentre A720 measures less than an inch (24.5mm)¹and combines a frameless display supporting 10-point multi-touch. The A720 continues Lenovo’s heritage of svelte designs for the AIO by smartly positioning the PC at the base on the unit. Improving AIO design even further, the A720 is engineered to optimize the touch experience in the ‘digital’ home. The A720’s widely adjustable hinge allows the screen to be pulled towards the user and folded back making touch applications more comfortable over longer periods in any position.
To optimize the touch experience on the AIO, the A720’s 10-point multi-touch display supports multi-user scenarios with greater accuracy. Powered by the latest Intel® Core™ Series processors and NVIDIA® GeForce® graphics with up to 1TB HDD and 64 GB SSD² storage, the A720 delivers an impressive home multimedia experience on a frameless high definition 16:9 wide-screen. With integrated entertainment features, such as room-shaking Dolby Home Theatre V4 audio, Lenovo High-Sense (720p HD) Webcam, and Lenovo IdeaTouch (a suite of touch-optimized applications and games), the A720 is an ultra stylish and fun addition to the modern home entertainment center.
