Summary: I love the concept of this computer but I find the internet connection incredibly slow and overall performance lacking for what you need to display streaming 1080p video. The only way I could get it to work was to use ethernet instead of wifi (even after I replaced the included usb wifi with a better one) - and even then it can't seem to keep a solid connection (no problem with my other computers or my rokus on wifi.
Summary: Bought this to stream netflix and the like. Video quality was poor and choppy. I had it on a wireless network, it may have been better with a wired connection. Also, I could have upgraded the RAM, which may have solved the issue.
Summary: This computer is configured and sold as a mini-media center. Yet it will not stream Amazon Prime Movies. The Video is horrendous. I don't believe there is a fix. If your thinking of running Windows 8 forget it. I spent the weekend working with Lenovo and Microsoft trying to get Windows 8 to run properly. It did not happen. Lenovo finally admitted it would not work. Yet the Lenovo website leads you to believe you can do the upgrade.
Summary: I purchased this nettop to do basic HTPC functions.(stream video from popular online sources as well as my network storage and video photos and local video). The overall video playback was very poor. Lots of choppy video with tearing and freezing. I spent hours updating network, graphics and chipset drivers to the most current versions, then configuring the OS to get the best possible video performance.
