Lenovo launches Atom-based all-on-one

Desktop web machine the way they should be?

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Nettops are primarily for web surfing, right? So they should ideally sport a nice, big built-in display, yes? Lenovo thinks so - its new Atom-based IdeaCentre C100 is essentially an 18.5in, 16:9 ratio screen.

Lenovo's IdeaCentre C100: web-centric all-in-one

The machine's just 50mm thick and between the front and back surfaces sit said Atom CPU - a single-core 230 or a dual-core 330; you choose which you want - 1GB of memory, a 160GB hard drive and a DVD writer.

The Windows XP-running box has four USB ports, and while Lenovo didn't talk about connectivity, we'd say there's an Ethernet port in there too and probably Wi-Fi as well.

The best bit: the whole thing costs $399 (£242/€271) in the US, so it could well come it at just under £300 if and when it appears over here. ®
