Lenovo Exposes IdeaCentre C110

Lenovo is probably best renowned for the eminently desirable ThinkPad range of laptops, but there are plenty of other strings to its bow. Take the Atom-based IdeaCentre C110, spotted by Gizmodo, for example.

The 20in all-in-one sports a similar design to alternatives such as the Shuttle XVision X50 and Asus Eee Top, though from the limited imagery available I'm inclined to suggest it looks a little snazzier.

A 1.6GHz Atom CPU, either 1GB or 2GB of RAM and an 80GB to 160GB hard drive are the specs we'd expect for such a system so no shocks there. A DVD drive is present and both Wi-Fi and built-in webcam are options - though only the latter seems like a should-have upgrade. The system as launched initially will run Windows Vista, but apparently Lenovo is set on releasing a touch-screen equipped version running Windows 7 eventually.

The Vista C110 is said to be launching this month in the US, starting at "around $400." No UK-centric details are available as yet, but if you cross your fingers and really want it hard enough we might just see a release this side of the pond.

How about adding some features that have been availible for less than a decade?

@ Xiphias. You could say that about 99% of all laptops and desktops released in the last couple of years..


What new features do you want? The ability for it to make a coffee?!





I personally like the style of these systems, the Shuttle model was nice looking.


This looks as good as, and will probably be a bit cheaper.

Sorry, that comment was supposed to be submitted to the news item about chrome getting skins.





Except for the ten years bit it is oddly appropriate here though. There are plenty of things it can do. An atom all-in-one is obviously intended to be a second or third PC so why not make make the ports and drives removable so the ports can be used as port extenders and the optical drive as an external optical drive for netbooks and ultraportables? Likewise add a video input so the screen can be used as a monitor (this should be standard on all all-in-ones).
