The IdeaCentre Q190 net top is among the world’s smallest desktop PCs—but big things can come in small packages. Advanced multimedia features let the Q190 turn your TV or monitor into an entertainment hub for games, videos, Web browsing, and more.

Your Home Entertainment Hub.Your Home Entertainment Hub.

Connect the IdeaCentre Q190 to your HD TV or monitor and enjoy vivid Full HD graphics — while up to 7.1 channel Surround Sound support provides an immersive audio experience. And don’t worry about connecting to other devices: Plenty of ports — including high-speed USB 3.0 — give you all the connections you need to establish a living room entertainment hub.

Compact but Built to Perform.Compact but Built to Perform.

While it’s compact and space-saving, the IdeaCentre Q190 is built to perform. A powerful processor and plenty of storage space make the Q190 your go-to device for home entertainment. Yet the Q190 is small enough — about the size of a paperback novel — to attach to the back of your TV or monitor with the in-box VESA mount. Plus the multimedia remote — complete with mini-keyboard — enables you to operate your entertainment hub from the comfort of your sofa or easy chair.

Simple to Use.

The IdeaCentre Q190 is packed with advanced technology, but it’s engineered to be easy to use. The Windows 8 operating system’s Metro user interface is perfect for the big screen, and applications like Lenovo Companion and Lenovo Support make using the Q190 a snap. And you can share music, photos, and more on any device from almost any location with Lenovo Cloud storage.  But the simplicity doesn’t end there: The clutter-free design keeps cords from becoming a tangled mess, and easy set up means you’ll be enjoying your PC minutes after taking it out of the box. You’ll have quick, easy access to the web, email, and all your other daily PC tasks — in addition to breathtaking graphics and sound — in a snap.

So, I use the sorta-like-Windows 7 interface which is distinguished by the lack of a “Start Menu”. Fortunately the windows-key-X works.The only oddity about the Lenovo instance of the Windows 8 software is that, if you use the PC and then use other parts of my entertainment system (DVD or Cable or…
