Turn your TV into an entertainment hub or fully functional computer with the Q190, one of the world’s smallest desktop PC.
Watch video clips, create a home theater, or simply browse the Web on your favorite screen – without taking up valuable space.


Lenovo® IdeaCentre® Q190


Intel® Celeron Dual-Core™ processor Windows 8 Integrated Intel® HD 3000 graphics 4GB DDR3 memory, 500 GB HDD storage Integrated high-speed 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi USB 2.0, USB 3.0 connectors and 6-in-1 card reader supporting SDXC format Included DVD R/W drive

Serious Multimedia in a Tiny Package.

The IdeaCentre® Q190 nettop 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.

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.

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.

Full HD (1080p) Support and HDMI Output

The Q190 nettop allows the user to connect to a TV, monitor, or projector. VGA is supported as well, along with HDMI.

S/PDIF Digital Audio Output

The Q190 nettop supports 7.1 channel digital audio with HD surround sound, and S/PDIF allows the user to link up with their TV for a fantastic living room PC experience.

Lenovo Rescue System

This technology is a quick and easy way to backup and recover your data without losing all your settings. If required, you can also restore your Windows OS and entire hard disk drive to its factory default settings, and all at the touch of a button.

The perfect nettop, depending on your use I bought this for a photo booth. It was cheaper than the nettop I just built a month ago, and has more horsepower plus I didn’t have to hassle with installing any hardware or installing Windows.The size is perfect, it is much smaller than many of the alternatives and the attached DVD burner makes it more functional. I love the design for the attached burner. I dislike using optical media but for now it is still necessary and having the burner built in is far preferred to using an external. Slot-loading is a plus too since I have to mount the computer in a small space where there isn’t much room for a tray to fully open.It comes with a very nice mini keyboard which would have saved me another $20-$30 but I already own several of the rii mini keyboards. If I didn’t, the included keyboard would suit my needs but as it is I will be using the rii keyboard because of the inclusion of function keys. For a photo booth operator, the mini keyboard is a huge plus. A full…

Does the Job I bought this to run some software which controls a bicycle trainer. Yes, there is such a thing.The software isn’t very demanding, so my needs were all about connectivity. I needed wired network, VGA output, and USB ports. Check. The remote mouse/keyboard was a huge plus, since it can be used in a room with no desk, or even from the trainer. Everything has started up fine so far, so I am very happy with this purchase.The HDMI port is a bonus for future use, but my application doesn’t require it.What’s not to like? It’s not a power user machine, but I have a 6-core monster for that. The instructions for the remote are non-existent. Finally I found a little picture about 1/8″ square on the back indicating that a USB dongle was inside (nowhere did the instructions say that there was such a thing). Once I pulled that out of the battery compartment as stuck it in a port, the remote worked great. Final issue: it’s Windows 8. Yuck.I…
