Lenovo IdeaCentre Q180 Claims “World’s Smallest Desktop”

25 Nov

Lenovo’s “world’s smallest desktop PC” features an Intel Atom CPU and an AMD Radeon HD 6450A graphics.

Lenovo has reportedly launched what it considers the “world’s smallest desktop PC,” the IdeaCentre Q180.

The Lenovo IdeaCentre measures just 6.1 x 7.56 x 0.86-inches. The starting price of IdeaCentre is fixed as $349 and it offers a few customizable features. However the base model (31102AU) sports a 2.13 GHz Intel Atom D2700 dual-core processor, an AMD Radeon HD 6450A GPU with 512 MB of memory, 2 GB of PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM clocked at 1066 MHz, a 5400RPM 500 GB HDD and more.

Consumers can purchase the 31102BU with an extra fifty bucks. This upgrades the memory to 4 GB and adds an optical drive. Yet both models come packed with 802.11 b/g/n wireless connectivity, Bluetooth, HDMI output, an 8-in-1 card reader, four USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, and a USB keyboard and mouse. This does not sound  bad for such a compact little desktop PC.

“With the IdeaCentre Q180, we upped our game in the compact PC category,” said Nick Reynolds, executive director, Product Group Marketing, Lenovo. “Featuring the latest HD Graphics and Blu-ray 3D playback, the Q180 enables consumers to change the way they enjoy multimedia and the Web in their living room at an affordable price point.”

In addition to the base features, consumers have an choice to prefer a 750 GB HDD, a 128 GB SSD, an external DVD burner and an external Blu-ray drive. There are many other option that includes an $80 Lenovo Enhanced Multimedia Remote with a backlit keyboard, 7.1 Surround Sound, Windows 7 Professional, external speakers, and even Microsoft’s Office Home & Business 2010 suite.

The estimated ship date of both IdeaCentre Q180 models is December 1, 2011. For more information, head here.
