Lenovo releases smallest PC

Written by Nick Farell



And cheap too


Lenovo has released what it is dubbing as the world's smallest computer.

The Windows 7-based IdeaCentre Q180 falls into the nettop PC category and is designed to sit next to the telly. It is designed to serve as an entertainment hub, given that it handles 1080p videos and optionally supports Blu-ray videos in 3D. Powered by a 2.13 GHz dual-core Intel Atom D2500 CPU, AMD Radeon HD 6450A discrete GPU and 2GB of DDR3 RAM running at 1066MHz it is not the fastest of creatures.  It can manage some older games, but it is really supposed to be doing internet browsing and playing media files.

It is fitted with 500GB HDD storage, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth and an 8-in-1 card reader with SDXC format support. It has HDMI, VGA, 4x USB 2.0 and 2x USB 3.0 ports and comes with a USB mouse and keyboard.  You can also connect it to the keyboard based Lenovo Multimedia Remote for an additional $79. You will have to pay extra for an external DVD burner or Blu-ray drive. 

It will cost you $379, with shipping expected to begin in December.
