The 27-inch Horizon 2 is now much thinner and lighter than its predecessor – the IdeaCentre Horizon.

The Horizon 2 measures only 19.5mm and weighs only 7.6kg – making it easier to transport around the home or office.

Users can simply shake their Android device while using the new Horizon mobile app, allowing content to “fall” onto the Horizon 2’s screen.

Placing the mobile device directly on its screen lets users “pull” out content onto the PC’s display, signaling the Aura dial to appear.
