World’s Smallest Full-Function Desktop PC: IdeaCentre Q190
The IdeaCentre Q190, the world’s smallest full-function desktop PC at just 22mm (0.86 inches) wide, packs multimedia features that
can turn any display in your home into an entertainment hub for videos, games, web browsing and more. With Full HD graphics,
up to 7.1 surround sound and an optional Blu-ray Disc™ drive supporting 3D Blu-ray playback, the Q190 doubles as a mobile home
theater system. For perfect picture at any angle viewing, the Lenovo L-Series monitors, such as the LI2723s, the world’s first
edgeless and thinnest 27-inch IPS monitor, serves as a great complement to the IdeaCentre Q190. This desktop PC also comes with
an optional compact wireless multimedia remote with built-in mini backlit keyboard and mouse, so users can control the Q190 from
the comfort of their couch.
The IdeaCentre Q190 may be compact, but it is as powerful as a full-sized PC with Windows 8 Pro and up to 80 percent faster
processing performance than IdeaCentre Q180. Users will enjoy steady Web browsing and HD video streaming, speedy music and
video downloads and stutter free multitasking, allowing users to play music, download files and surf the web simultaneously
