Lenovo laptops are ubiquitous in the workplace, many companies having opted for a contract with them to supply their mobile PC needs.  These notebooks tend to the larger size with a matte black finish as opposed to the shiny and tiny look to most other laptops.  Their new IdeaCentre Q100 breaks that mold, being the size of an external HDD (6.0″ x 6.8″ x 0.8″) and having no fan to create noise.  The drawback is the power, with a single core Atom and Intel 945GSE providing only basic computing ability.  At $299 it is a nice deal and it has a few bigger brothers including an Ion powered version which you can see in SPCR’s review.

“The Lenovo IdeaCentre Q100 has unimpressive specs: an Atom 1.6 GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM, and a 160GB hard drive. What stands out is its extremely small, fanless chassis and extremely quiet operation.”
