Lenovo have announced the availability of their snazzy new range of IdeaCenter Q110 nettop machines in the States.
Powered by NVIDIA’s Ion platform, the Q110 measures up at just six inches wide, 0.8 inches deep and 6.8 inches high and looks – as we’d say in Wales – well lush, with both the silver and black patterned glossy finishes cutting a considerable dash to our eyes.
Designed to be used in the office, living room or bedroom, the book-sized nettops come with Windows Vista Home Premium 64 installed (or Windows 7 on free upgrade, when it becomes available), with the package offering 2GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive for $399 (currently around £250).
Billed as a ‘premium multimedia mini PC supporting high definition 1080p video and 3D gaming capabilities’, there’s a HDMI port onboard and the ability to mount the pint sized PC onto the back of your monitor for a piece of that all-in-one action.
There’s no news of a UK release or pricing yet, and it’s worth remembering that the US price doesn’t include a monitor, keyboard or mouse.
However, if the nettop performs as well as its alluring finish suggests, then we think it’s a pretty good deal – assuming we don’t get hit with daft exchange rate pricing if the Q110 makes it to the UK of course.

At this point we would have added a direct link to the product, but seeing as Lenovo use some rubbish database-generated website that generated a URL a ridiculous 229 characters long, you’ll have to find your way from here.
