Lenovo unveiled the 27in IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC at CES with the aim of making "personal computing interpersonal computing".
The idea is that the Horizon can be laid flat on any surface, and allow different people to use the device simultaneously.
It supports ten-finger touch and will include games-focused accessories such as an "e-dice", four joysticks and strikers - handy for playing air hockey, for example.

A number of games and educational apps will come as standard, with the most enticing perhaps being a version of Monopoly.
The joystick could be used for FishingJoy, while Lenovo suggested you "challenge friends and family to race their way to the finish line in Draw Race 2 HD".
The Horizon can also act as all-in-one desktop, and is powered by Intel Core i7 processors and Nvidia GeForce graphics.
Lenovo also demonstrated a 39in table PC, pictured below, although it emphasised this was still in the concept stage.
Due to be released in June 2013, the first Horizon Table PC will include a 27in screen at a price of $1,699. UK pricing has yet to be confirmed.
