Lenovo has also on display at CES a PC the size of a coffee table that works like a gigantic tablet. The IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC has a a 27-inch screen with the innards of a Windows 8 computer built into it, and it can stand up on a table.

But you can pick it up off the table, unhook the power cord and lay it flat for games.

The Table PC will include plastic "strikers" for "Air Hockey," and joysticks that attach to the screen with suction cups for other games, including multiplayer shooter "Raiding Company."



Lenovo said the Table PC will go on sale this summer starting at $1,699.

Microsoft pioneered the idea of a table PC with the Surface, a PC with a 30-inch touch-sensitive screen released in 2008.

Sony has also released the Tap 20, an all-in-one PC that can also be laid flat. But it's smaller than the Lenovo model, at 20 inches diagonally.
