RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. -- April 16, 2013

Lenovo (HKSE: 0992) (PINK SHEETS: LNVGY) today announced that the IdeaCentre
Horizon Table PC, winner of more than 14 awards at the 2013 International
Consumer Electronics Show, will be available for purchase via Lenovo’s website
(www.lenovo.com) beginning April 16 in the U.S. The Horizon will hit retail
shelves in late June. As the leading interpersonal computing device, the
Horizon Table PC brings people together in a totally new way, allowing up to
four people to use it simultaneously, interacting with content and playing
games with joysticks, strikers and e-dice.

Connecting Families via Edutainment

Nearly half of people Lenovo surveyed^1 recently spend a considerable amount
of time playing PC games and using apps with their families each week. Horizon
fills a need to connect families around one device for a truly shared
computing experience over the solitary computing nature of most other devices.

Horizon’s supersized touch screen and dynamic graphics connects people like
never before. Just lay Horizon flat in Table PC mode to activate the Aura
interface and begin interacting with other people and favorite content, from
photos and videos to apps and games. Horizon’s multitouch screen makes playing
customized games including Ubisoft’s Raiding Company, Draw Race 2 and King of
the Opera and Electronic Art’s Monopoly fun.

Horizon comes preloaded with games from Bluestacks with additional access to
thousands more for download. It offers a library of Lenovo games such as Air
Hockey as well as Stagelight digital music creation software for budding
musicians. To bridge the physical and the digital worlds, Horizon comes with a
special set of on-the-glass accessories including an e-dice and up to four
joysticks and strikers (no batteries required) for a different kind of game
play. And with one press of a button, users can rotate the screen 180 degrees
to easily show others forward-facing content.

A Table PC and More

While Horizon attracts attention for its unique family time Table PC mode, it
also doubles as a user’s high performance, all-in-one 27-inch desktop.
Engineered with powerful up to Intel® Core i7™ processors, NVIDIA GeForce
graphics and Dolby Home Theatre® v4 audio, Horizon displays content
beautifully and supports fast and smooth multimedia playback. Horizon includes
the Lenovo Eye Distancing System to alert users and adjust the screen’s
brightness when users get too close to the screen. It also includes a built-in
battery and WiFi to easily move it around the house, and it brings out the
best of Windows 8 with its 10-finger touch support.

Users can choose from a variety of service options for Horizon, including
In-Home Warranty upgrades for on-site service and up to three years of
warranty coverage as well as Lenovo Premium Support where expert technicians
are available when needed via phone or remote session support.

Pricing^2

Prices for models on www.lenovo.com start at approximately $1,699.

thinking about computing - one that makes the experience shared, collaborative
and personal,” said Jay Parker, president, Lenovo North America. “We’re
thrilled to be bringing the IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC to customers around
the world this spring and seeing the unique ways consumers incorporate it into
their homes, work and play.”
