Today marks a new day for Lenovo with the announcement of its first desktop, the IdeaCentre K210. For all intents and purposes, it’s just a desktop but it pulls a couple things from the laptop line that are unique and cool, like Veriface facial recognition technology. It also includes an anti-microbial keyboard and “Bright Vision”, which detects how far you are from the monitor and adjusts screen brightness. I’m kind of skeptical about the latter of those two.
You can get the IdeaCentre K210 with the following specs if you want.
* Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Processors
* Intel® GMA 3100 integrated graphics
* Blu-ray HD-DVD Combo accommodates home theater
* High definition audio 5.1 for reverberating sound
* Gamers will love the optional upgrade to ATI Radeon 2600 XT (512MB)
Full specs after the jump.
Pricing starts at $379 after MIR and you can choose from a 19- or 22-inch monitor for $229 or $299.
