Lenovo IdeaCentre Q180: Atom's Wake

PC Perspective
11 May 2012
  • Excerpt: If the netbook was a shooting star, the nettop was an asteroid that never quite entered our atmosphere. Instead it flew silently by, noted by NASA, written about in a handful of articles, and now forgotten.

  • Conclusion: If your budget allows, springing for the $599 Apple Mac Mini might be a smarter choice here, as its much more powerful Core i5 CPU and better graphics chip should have zero trouble with 1080p media playback. (It’s pretty quiet, too.) But then, the Mac Mini lacks an optical drive, something we contend most media PC buyers still find important. So if you’ve found a great media PC in the $500$600 price range, please let us know in the comments below. We’re still looking.
  • Pros: Exceptionally compact chassis, Versatile setup options, Well-designed wireless keyboard remote option
  • Cons: Constant fan noise, Occasional struggles with 1080p video, Disappointing performance

Lenovo IdeaCentre Q180 Review

Digitaltrends
8 May 2012
  • Conclusion: The Lenovo Q180 is one of the best nettops we’ve ever tested. It is small, quiet, attractive and comes with a buffet of peripherals that add value to the system. If you’re going to buy a nettop this is likely to be your best option. Yet this mini-PC can’t escape the problems shared by all nettops. The hardware is barely adequate for modern computing. Tasks that are simple on other computers, such as playing back HD YouTube clips, are too much for this system to handle.
  • Pros: Small and attractive, Numerous ports, Ships with useful peripherals
  • Cons: Inadequate processor performance, Can’t handle many HD video sources, More powerful systems are priced the same

Lenovo IdeaCentre Q180 review

12 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Lenovo's Q180 is a slim mini-PC, and isn’t much broader than a typical nettop. Although it still has a low-power processor, there's a great deal that sets this compact computer apart from the crowd. For a start, it has a disc drive: an ultra-thin, slot-loading DVD-writer and Blu-ray reader. This means that you can install software and make backups using discs instead of being dependent on the internet or USB storage media.

Blickfang im Büro: Lenovo IdeaCentre Q180

pc-typ.de
31 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Ein Office-Rechner muss meistens keine High-End-Leistung bringen. Wichtig sind Zuverlässigkeit, vielfältige Einsatzmöglichkeiten und manchmal auch ein gewisses Aussehen. Gerade in exklusiv eingerichteten Büros spielt die Optik eine große Rolle, da die Rechner auf oder unter dem Schreibtisch das Gesamtbild sonst empfindlich stören könnten. Mit dem Lenovo IdeaCentre Q180 besteht diese Gefahr allerdings nicht – ganz im Gegenteil sogar.
