Large screen nettops are somewhat of a mystery to us. Lenovo’s latest, the all-in-one IdeaCentre C300, is certainly a looker on the outside, but the beauty of that screen real estate is hampered by a 1.6GHz Atom processor / integrated graphics unable to handle our internet streaming needs — Hulu, Pandora, and Netflix were all but a wash. Still, it’s pretty light and sturdy, and when powered on absolutely quiet and cool — we watched four hours of a DVD with a minimum of stutter and little to no heat or machine noise. We’re still putting it through the paces, but in the meantime, feel free to live vicariously through our unboxing in the gallery below!
