Lenovo Slips Out Sleek, Sexy IdeaCentre Q180 Desktop

Like small? Like sleek? Like Lenovo? If so, the company has a machine they'd like to sell you, and it's a newcomer by the name of IdeaCentre Q180. It's a slim and compact rig, with Full HD graphics, 7.1 surround sound, plus an optional Blu-ray Disk drive supporting Blu-ray 3D playback, along with a number of other features that allow the Q180 to double as a mobile home theater system.

You'll find a dual-core Atom CPU, 750GB HDD (or 128GB of SSD), DirectX 11 support, a compact wireless multimedia remote, with a built-in mini-keyboard and mouse, VGA/HDMI outputs, USB 3.0, an 8-in-1 card reader, and a chassis that's just 22mm thick. You'll also get 4GB of DDR3 memory, 802.11bgn Wi-Fi, and support for VESA mounting. The IdeaCentre Q180 will be available November 22 on Lenovo.com starting at $349. The Q180 will also be sold through select retailers and on www.lenovo.com. Not bad for a studio PC or a secondary machine.
