The world’s No. 2 PC manufacturer is introducing its new all-in-one desktop PC with a multi-touch screen, is hinged to permit viewing from different angles – and also folds flat.

Lenovo’s IdeaCentre A720 model went on sale Monday with a web price of $1,849 and a retail price of $1,999.

It’s the latest model from Lenovo in a series of new products rolled out this year as the company seeks to overcome HP to earn the world’s No. 1 PC sales ranking.

However, Lenovo recently has had to recall more than 180,000 other all-in-one machines due to a fire hazard.

Lenovo also touts the A720 as the world’s slimmest all-in-one model at less than an inch thick.

The A720 was not a secret, having been announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, where it received several awards.

It is versatile, featuring a hinge that allows the screen to be titled up to 90 degrees – or completely flat.

“As the number one provider of consumer desktop PCs worldwide, Lenovo prides itself in pushing the design and performance envelope to provide users with the best possible computing experience,” said Victor Rios, vice president of Idea Product Group Business Operations, Lenovo. “The IdeaCentre A720 takes touch computing to the next level thanks to its unique hinge for angled viewing and multi-touch capability, and svelte, powerful design.”

The A720 features Intel Core Series processors and Nvidia GeForce graphics with up to 1 terabyte of hard-drive storage.

Loaded with Dolby Home Theatre and other features, Lenovo says the A720 can also serve as a home entertainment center.
