Lenovo IdeaCentre Q180 Review

 

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.

The Lenovo Q180 is one of the best nettops we’ve ever tested. It is small, quiet, attractive and comes with a buffet of peripherals that add value to the system. If you’re going to buy a nettop this is likely to be your best option.

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.

Lenovo IdeaCentre Q180 Review and Ratings

 

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.

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

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

While its benchmark performance wasn’t quite what we expected from looking at the system’s spec sheet, it’s the IdeaCentre Q180’s other issues that really give us pause. Its noticeable and near-constant fan noise is not only annoying, but it makes us...

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

SO CLOSE to being a perfect media pc

 

I believe the next generation of atom/gpu mini pc's will be able to playback almost any content with no studder and server as excellent media pc's.

I purchased this as an attempt to test the new atom processors for a replacement htmpc at home. Overall it's been a good experience and I've been happy with the performance I've been seeing. I loaded this up with a 60gb ssd and an external drive to...

I have been satisfited with the speed and overall agility but it just studders a bit when starting a bluray (I purchased and replaced the dvd burner) or starting and stopping recorded tv. I've also seen that some web based videos are grainy or choppy....
