Check it out, the Lenovo IdeaCentre Q110 Nettop is finally available for purchase at Lenovo’s online store. Lenovo are well known for shaping things up with a nice, smooth, glossy touch, there’s no exception for their new mini PC here.

Since the news of Nokia’s new N900 Maemo phone became official late last week, there’s been a huge influx of different images, photos and hands on videos onto the internet so we thought it was probably time to gather all of these to create one nice collection.
