4.0 out of 5 stars Very small PC, 21 Oct 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190 Ultra Small Form Factor Desktop PC - (Silver/Black) (Intel Core i3 2365M 1.4GHz Processor, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, LAN, WLAN, Integrated Graphics, Windows 8) (discontinued by manufacturer) (Personal Computers)
I bought this for my FLAC music collection of CD's so I could play them via the digital SPDIF output on the device. I have not been disappointed.

The Q190 is very small and easy to take apart or upgrade with memory or hard disk. I loaded Lubuntu onto another hard disk and the system works fine, only a slight annoying 'wine' from the fan. I have found the computer quite nippy with the i3 processor, but then i am not editing photos or video files.

Lots of connectivity from a very small box. A word of warning though, make sure you disable the secure boot settings in the Bios otherwise legacy drives and other OS's will not be recognized.

A[pparently this is currently suspended by Amazon due to a person not receiving what was described in the web page. All I can say is that the item came as described -mini computer, wired keyboard and mouse, VGA thingy for fitting to the back of a TV.

Why all other computers can't be this small and quiet I fail to understand. lenovo I find have genarally good products.

Recommended if you can find one now.
