Lenovo Horizon 2s Review
Lenovo’s All-in-one Desktop PC
Horizon 2s brings all the innovation and fun of the Horizon family of tabletop PCs in a slimmer, more portable device. It still offers two great modes, operating upright with the optional stand accessory as an all-in-one desktop PC, or laying flat as an innovative, multi-user entertainment device that redefines together time.
The Horizon 2s ($949 as tested) is the slimmer version of Lenovo’s portable all-in-one desktop PC, and it has me a little conflicted. On the one hand it has a sub-$1,000 price, a sleek chassis, and Lenovo’s support for large-screen portable all-in-ones. On the other hand, 5,400rpm spinning hard drives are very 2005, connectivity could be better, and battery life is a little short compared with the competition.

Design and Features
The sleek Horizon 2s$970.41 at Amazon is built into a slim chassis measuring about 11.5 by 19.5 by 0.62 inches (HWD), and weighing 5.44 pounds. That’s a smidge larger and heavier than its main rival, our current Editors’ Choice for portable all-in-one desktops Dell XPS 18 (1820) $1,449.99 at Dell, but still slimmer and lighter than others in the category. It comes with a wireless keyboard and mouse combo and a simple power brick to power the system and recharge its sealed internal battery. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with the optional charging stand ($89), which has a handy magnetic dock, a tilt mechanism, and raises the screen to be more comfortable. The XPS 18 as tested came packaged with its stand. Larger all-in-one desktops like the Lenovo Horizon 2e$849.99 at Lenovo and HP Envy Rove 20-K014us Mobile All-in-One don’t have a charging stand option.
