Lenovo's Flex 20 is a tabletop PC for less

Desktops
I'm Dan Ackerman and we are taking a look at the Lenovo Flex 20. This is another one of the growing category of what I call tabletop PCs. A lot of companies have these now. They're essentially 20-inch tablets and they got batteries inside. They also have kickstands so they stand up like all-in-one PC's and use to come with a keyboard and mouse so you can use it like that also. HP has one, Sony has one. Dell has one. If you go down to 18 inches that's how big the Dell one is. This one is technically 19-1/2 inches. Lenovo calls it the Flex 20. The main thing this guy has going for it is that it's a little bit less expensive than some of the other tabletop PCs we've seen. Right now you can get this for $750 and that's pretty reasonable. These are kind of lower end specs. You get an Intel Core i3 in here, just 4 gigabytes of RAM, regular old 500 gigabyte hard drive, so no SSD, no higher end processors. I didn't see any upgrade options right now, but if you wanna try something like this out for less you certainly can't go wrong spending 750 bucks on a big 20-inch all-in-one that also has a battery in it. So the way a tabletop PC works is you have them set up like this and then it's got a hinge in the back with a kickstand like this and when you're ready you just push the table down and it just lies flat and often times it'll launch a custom software interface. Lenovo has one called Aura that lets you manipulate stuff on the tabletop differently than you would for example in the Windows 8 menu. And when you're done with that, you just hit the latch and the kickstand comes out and you set it up again just like it was before. Compared to some of the other tabletop PCs we've seen other few budget touches to this guy, the screen resolution is only 1600 x 900, not the 1920 x 1080 on virtually every other type of machine like this we've seen. There are only 2 USB ports, and if you use the included keyboard and mouse it has a little receiver that eats up one of those ports. No SD card slot, no optical drive or anything like that. So who exactly are these tabletop PCs for? You know I think they make excellent all-around family PCs. You can push them down, put them on the coffee table, put them on an ottoman. They're great for playing games. Lenovo has some games built in that you could buy some optional little bumpers and joysticks when playing the games. Great for messing around with photos, even looking at maps or big news apps. It really gives you a various sort of sit around the table with the whole family kind of feel. If you want the most high end of tabletop PCs Lenovo has a new version of their 27-inch machine coming up later this year. That should be a lot of fun, but on the lower end you can't do a lot better than this guy for 750 bucks. I'm Dan Ackerman and that is the Lenovo Flex 20.
