I am so impressed with this little computer. I have it behind my TV and you wouldn't even know it's there. It's not silent but it is very quiet. I bought the Blu Ray version and it came with the keyboard/remote. I thought I would find this hard to use but it's very intuitive. I had it up and running 5 minutes after opening the box.

It's no powerhouse but you don't need that for a media centre PC. I love it!

This is a fabulous machine for it's size - while it worked! It may only have an atom processor but it's not slow. I ran a 32" full def TV off it and the picture was perfect. The machine itself is very neat, has a solid well built feel about it and plays blu ray discs perfectly. Unfortunately, after less than two weeks it ate one of my driver discs and i could not persuade it to release it so i had no option but to return it to Amazon. I would willingly have taken a replacement but there were none in stock so I was given a refund. Had the disc player been OK I would have given this PC 5 *****.
PS Mr Amazon - you haven't returned my disc to me yet!! If it is still stuck in the machine perhaps you could get me another one - it's for a HP Laserjet 1018

Took delivery with no problems- was surprised to find after setting up the unit that the supplied Blu ray drive aslo burns cds and dvds- i'm not sure why the unit with the optional dvd drive is more expensive?
I took off mcaffee straight away as i detest it and put on norton as i already had a spare license- the computer is fine for general use and streams/ blu ray etc with no problems.
Overall a brilliant fault free purchase that is very reasonably priced.

Looks great, feels great and as long as you stay away from media (especially the HD kind) you'll be fine (sort of).

It unfortunately, has an inherent flaw that means it cannot handle HD flash video without stuttering. It appears the Q180 cannot offload the video processing to the more than capable 7450/6450 (both the same) GPU. Chances are it is merely a bug in the inner design of the Q180 but Lenovo never bothered to check or try to fix. Overclocking the GPU/updating drivers and Flash makes zero difference.

It's solution? Hurriedly brought out the Q190 which also has flaws.

So for the sake of a simple BIOS update it's not really as good as it should be. A case of nice unit shame about the support.

I bought this to replace a general desktop and quite pleased with it as it's very quiet. Wanted to buy a PC quickly while Win 7 is still available. Only issue I have so far is using Win7 that sometimes Chrome freezes but Internet Explorer works fine.

So I suspect this is a Chrome issue and not the PC.

I bought this desktop computer to replace an old Fujitsu Siemens Pentium 4 on xp.This piece of kit is brilliant. My only reason fore not giving it 5 stars is the atom processor is not as fast as my laptop ( with a i5 processor ). other people have said that the fan is noise I don't think so.

I wanted this as a HTPC so I bought the version with a Bluray drive - this is what I have based my review on.

I was hoping this would replace the Bluray player and Western Digital TV Live Streaming Media Player which streams video and music from my NAS via wired LAN. When I watched webstreams I hook my laptop up to my TV via HDMI so I was expecting this PC to save me from having to do this too (my wife uses our laptop quite a bit).

I received this and loaded XBMC to stream the video and music. I found the streaming picture quality to be poor. I compared it to he video quality from the WD Live player (which is much cheaper) and the picture from the Lenovo was poorer for sure. Darker, not as clear.
-1 for the Lenovo for this function.

Music streaming using XBMC is fine.

Streaming video from the web via the laptop provided a clearer picture and less stuttering than streaming the same video via the Lenovo.
-1 for the Lenovo.

The PC is quite slow to boot up.
-1 for the Lenovo.

The first disc I put in the drive got stuck and I haven't been able to get the disc out. I have sent it back to Amazon with this disc stuck in the drive.
-1 for the Lenovo

Amazon lists the N5602 remote as optional but it came as standard with my package. A great remote imo.

Perhaps I was expecting too much from the Lenovo but it has been a let down for me. I think 'll stay clear of HTPCs for now.

Its more than I expected. Blue ray plays and burn DVD. The remote control is great to relax in your living room watch youtube, photos, play music and play PC games.
I am so glad made up my mind and got it.
