Lenovo IdeaCentre Q180 Review

 

The rise of the netbook brought along with it the nettop, a small computer using an Intel Atom processor that could fit in a desk drawer. Products like the Acer Aspire Revo, Asus Eee Box and Lenovo Q110 promised a new era of thin-and-light desktop...

Small and attractive ; Numerous ports ; Ships with useful peripherals

Inadequate processor performance ; Can’t handle many HD video sources ; More powerful systems are priced the same

The fate of this system is sealed by the hardware. Without a quicker processor, this nettop can’t hope to perform the duty Lenovo claims it will.

Lenovo IdeaCentre Q180 Review: An Inexpensive, Media-Centric Tyke

 

Lenovo goes ultrasmall with its latest nettop, the Lenovo IdeaCentre Q180. This compact PC's optional optical drive is detachable too, just in case you need its footprint to be even smaller. Unfortunately, tiny, space-saving PCs often come with...

Small, slim, and light ; Easy-to-use multimedia remote

Poor performance

This nettop doesn't have a lot going for it, but it is small and portable, and it comes with a multimedia remote.

Lenovo IdeaCentre Q180: Atom's Wake

 

If the netbook was a shooting star, the nettop was an asteroid that never quite entered our atmosphere. Instead it flew silently by, noted by NASA, written about in a handful of articles, and now forgotten.

Remember when you needed a hefty piece of furniture (most affectionately called an "entertainment center") to house all your entertainment equipment? You needed space for your CRT television, VCR, speakers, video tapes, stereo receiver, CD player, CDs,...

Exceptionally compact chassis ; Versatile setup options ; Well-designed wireless keyboard remote option

Constant fan noise ; Occasional struggles with 1080p video ; Disappointing performance

The Q180 is incredibly compact and sleekly designed, with a thumb-friendly keyboard remote. It handles high-def media pretty well, but its benchmark performance isn’t great, and you’ll have to live with some fan noise.

Lenovo IdeaCentre Q180 review

 

Lenovo's Q180 is a slim mini-PC, and isn't much broader than a typical nettop. Although it still has a low-power processor, there's a great deal that sets this compact computer apart from the crowd. For a start, it has a disc drive: an ultra-thin,...

It isn’t a powerhouse, but its Blu-ray drive and large hard disk make this mini PC perfect for film fans

The world's smallest nettop PC with optional Blu-ray drive and keyboard/mouse remote.

Awesome mouse/keyboard remote ; Tiny and cute ; Modular and flexible ; Excellent connectivity ; Optional Blu-ray ; Affordable

Glossy finish ; Average looks ; Atom CPU still underpowered ; Slow hard drive

I own a Lenovo Q180 and I was very interested in Matt Smith's review. I purchased the version without an operating system and no DVD drive. I was interested in setting this up media centre using Ubuntu 12.04 as my operating system of choice and XBMC as...
