Research Triangle Park, N.C. – Lenovo’s new IdeaCentre Q190 all-in-one (AIO) desktop is so small it could be called a portable computer.
Lenovo has packed a fully functioning home-theater-centric AIO into the 0.84-inch-thick device, which overall is not much larger than an external hard drive.
Lenovo is marketing the $349 and more Q190, shipping in January, as a portable home theater. It supports full HD graphics, 7.1 surround sound, has an optional Blu-ray player and supports 3D Blu-ray playback.
It is powered by an Intel Core i3 processor, has up to 1TB of storage that can be paired with 24GB of solid-state memory, and comes with up to 8GB of RAM. The Q190 can be loaded with Windows 8 or Windows 8 Pro.
