Very compact and well designed. General performance was very good, but having upgraded the supplied Windows 8 to Windows 8.1, the wireless driver for the Q190 was incompatible with Win8.1 and the wifi ceased to work. Found a fix for this via an internet forum (i.e. download an earlier driver for the wireless adapter), but Lenovo support was poor in this respect.
Moreover, the Q190's wifi simply would not perform adequately (with Win8 or 8.1) and the average download speed it achieved was a woeful 0.7mbps via my BT Homehub 5, whereas I usually get 12-17mbps (and continued to do so with my 7 year old laptop and other devices). After an entire weekend spent trying to fix the problem by adjusting settings on the Q190 and on my Homehub, I gave up, returned it to its factory settings and returned it for a refund. Shame, as it seemed very suitable in all other respects.
