"When we reviewed the Lenovo IdeaCentre Q100 not long ago, we had one critical complaint: while the system looked sleek, it ran too slow for even rudimentary tasks. For example, even though the system is meant as a web terminal or for knowledge workers who just need access to enterprise services at a company, the slow processor and sub-par graphics made the original Q100 inadequate for power-user tasks.

"That main complaint has been partially solved with the successor, called the IdeaCentre Q110. The higher model number denotes a fairly important change: the Q110 uses the Nvidia Ion chipset to handle graphics performance. This also means the Q110 has an HDMI port for connecting the device to your home entertainment system for both audio and video, or to a monitor that supports the connection. Suddenly, the Q110 becomes more interesting. The stylish design, with an angular look and an all-black exterior, fits well in your entertainment room and the Q110 plays movies and games at reasonable speeds, making it one of the most well-suited computers for the coming generation of downloaded content"
