However, there is a twist and PC makers are trying to make their way around persistent rumors that Intel has trouble getting the drivers for the PowerVR graphics chip to work as it should. German publication heise.de noticed that Intel's Atom D2500 is now available in Lenovo's IdeaCentre Q180 as well as in Giada's i35G. Neither model relies on Intel's integrated graphics system, but a third party solution.
Lenovo uses AMD's Radeon HD 6450A and Giada includes Nvidia's GeForce GT 520 chip. There was no information available from Lenovo and Giada available why the two manufacturers are accepting the extra cost. The AMD and Nvidia chips are much more capable than Intel's integrated graphics, but they also consume more power and work somewhat against the economic idea of a nettop PC.
Lenovo's IdeaCentre Q180 comes with 2 GB memory, as well as 500 GB HDD and currently sells from $303.
