The Lenovo C100, brought to you by Lenovo, is a recently unveiled all-in-one PC featuring a slim-line design and an 18.5 inch screen having a 16:9 aspect ratio and 1600x900 resolution. The C100 possesses an efficient form factor as it combines the conventional tower desktop, speakers, microphone and screen with a camera in such a manner that you will able to easily incorporate it virtually anywhere you want. Its dimensions of 18.5 x 14.5 x 4 inches provide for a compact PC.

Despite the highly desirable features offered by the Lenovo C100's screen, its depth is only 2 inches. The C100 comes with an Intel Atom 230 CPU. It also provides four USB ports and a built-in DVD burner/reader enabling you to explore multimedia to the fullest. The Lenovo Recovery System featuring OneKey Antivirus and OneKey Recovery gives you excellent security as it detects corrupted data before booting into Windows and reverts this data to its previous uncorrupted form.

The other specifications of the Lenovo C100 NetTop include 1GB of RAM, a 1.3-megapixel camera, Windows XP Home preloaded and 160GB hard drive. The total memory and hard drive capacity can be customized to up to 2GB and 320GB respectively. The graphics are in safe hands as the integrated GMA 950 from Intel is handling them. The C100 is expected to revive the desktop PC market by providing a quality alternative for the notebook segment. The C100 has already hit the market and is available now.

As the Lenovo C100 can be set up with ease and can be operated effortlessly, it can provide users with an enhanced digital home experience. Its sleek and stylish look gives it even more appeal. Its starting price is only $399, which is highly affordable. However, the C100 does not give you the chance to enjoy the advanced features provided by Windows 7. Also, the absence of higher performing processors like the Intel Core 2 Duo Processor may not sit well with some consumers.
