The IdeaCentre might be Lenovo’s “star of the show” at CES 2009. This thin all-in one PC has an interesting design in which most of the components are placed into the bottom of the computer, allowing the display itself to appear thinner than other all-in-one competitors (Lenovo claims that it is the “Thinnest all-in-one PC”). It comes with a Lenovo keyboard complete with a touchpad, but the second hero in this announcement is Lenovo’s Motion Drive Remote that is also a VOIP handset, an “air mouse” (moves the cursor with hand gestures) a game controller and a (Media Center) remote, of course. We wonder if Lenovo will sell it as a stand-alone device.
