Summary: Short version: Get something else! It does not do well what it is supposed to do. Long Version: I bought the Q180 as a HTPC and was supper excited about the form and size of it. Unfortunately it fails at its most basic purpose: video streaming. Whether it is from the web or from the HDD/memory stick, video streaming is choppy, cuts off, and is off from the sound track. DVD playback is only passable. It does not come with a keyboard, only a remote/keyboard/trackball.

The Intel Atom processor feels underpowered, and is crippling to any function. HDD is far too slow.
Doesn't work as a HTPC - can't watch Hulu in full screen mode.

Summary: It seems to me that the main use of a computer with this form factor is to use as a HTPC (home theater PC). That's why I bought it, anyway. After hooking it up to my TV, I tested it with the three main websites I watch regularly, YouTube, Netflix, and Hulu.com. YouTube and Netflix were OK, but when I tried to watch Hulu.com, the framerate was terrible unless I kept it in a tiny window. I checked google, and apparently everyone has this problem.
Summary: I purchased this for the purpose of hooking it up to my TV to stream online videos from the major network sites. My internet connection is super strong and streams Netflix just fine. But with this computer, I did not have luck. I didn't feel like this computer was powerful enough to do what it should have. You should also keep in mind that there are different models of this devise that may or may not include the additional hard drive or Blu Ray player.
Summary: Short version: This PC is a piece of junk...slow, outdated drivers, Wifi doesn't work well. Longer version: On paper, the specs of this PC looked pretty good -- it has a 2GHz dual-core CPU, decent graphics, a reasonable sized hard drive, and its tiny footprint made it appear to be ideal for the purpose we intended for it: a media center for the living room.
Summary: ich hatte mehrere PCs und Laptops, die nicht gerade die leisesten waren. Das Q180 oder zumindest das Exemplar was ich bekommen habe, ist die Top 1 nach Lautstärke des Lüfters bzw. Flop 1 nach einem leisen Betrieb. Der Lüfter-Modus ist dazu nicht regelbar, damit ist das PC einfach unbrauchbar. Die Rückabwicklung war problemlos.
