Chinese computer major Lenovo is heading to the market with what it claims to be the smallest desktop computer in the world - IdeaCentre Q190.
The Q190 is only 22mm wide but as potent as its larger counterparts as it can play high-definition graphics and 3D Blu-ray with the optional Blu-ray drive, tech website vr-zone reported on Friday.
The PC comes with Windows 8 Pro and will hit the market in January. It can function as a standard computer, plugged into any monitor, or it can be used as a mobile home theatre system. The Q190's processor speed is 80% faster than the prior model Q180, which is of a similar size.
The computer maker has also announced the latest series of its all-in-one PCs. The C340, C440, C540, C345 and C445 come with up to 1TB hard drive (for C540 it can be up to 2TB), a 720p webcam and a maximum of 8GB RAM. The C340 and C345 feature a 20-inch display, the C440 and C445 have a 21.5-inch display and the C540 comes with a 23-inch display. The C340, C440 and C540 include a third-generation Intel Core i3 processor, while the C345 and C445 are powered by up to an AMD E2 dual-core processor.
All the PCs have the Lenovo Dynamic Brightness System and the Lenovo Eye Distance System. The first automatically adapts the screen brightness to the surrounding environment and the latter alerts users if they are too close to the screen.
