UI Video Included!
Lenovo's new IdeaCentre D520 was in attendance at this year's CES 2011 show. After seeing the UI Hybrid and concept Wintel tablet, the I found myself standing in front of a monolithic all-in-one PC. The IdeaCentre D520 is a beast of a machine, with a 23" multitouch display and a Core i7 processor under the hood.

With up to 16 GB of RAM and 2 GB of discrete Nvidia GT 55M graphics, the D520 has plenty of power. And it's been optimized to boot up ridiculously fast. The model I saw went from shut-down to start-up in around 8 seconds.
8.84 seconds, to be exact.
One of the D520s on the floor was 3D ready. It looked good from ten feet back, and from fairly wide angles on my left and right. It was a little uncomfortable up close- I wouldn't want to watch a 3D movie on this from my desk chair.
Last, I took some video of the product manager fiddling with the UI. The screen seemed responsive (which I confirmed with a personal follow-up) and the UI itself looked fantastic. There's a great deal of depth, and the way Lenovo set up their panels packs an enormous amount of information onto the screen. You can even flip panels around to access other options. Here's the video:
