World’s Smallest Full-Function Desktop PC: IdeaCentre Q190

The IdeaCentre Q190, the world’s smallest^1 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^2 and an optional
Blu-ray Disc™ drive supporting 3D Blu-ray playback^3, 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^4, 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 Q180^5. 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
with ease.
