Hi everyone,

I'm looking at this Lenovo Q-Series that is really nice to be placed near the TV.
All ok about the specs that are really good and probably too much for the use I have to do (only media center with OPENELEC).

My question is about the turn on/off feature by remote..... it comes out with the wireless keyboard and trackball, this one Lenovo but i don't know if it is capable of turn on/off.

Thanks guys

Clever little machine. Looks pretty sweet as well.

Wonder how it compares to my Acer Revo 1600 running OpenELEC. I mean, it already plays everything I throw at it without any problems.

For HTPC, too much is better than too little...Laugh

This is what the answer me closing the connection...

Please wait while we connect with you with a Lenovo Chat Representative.

You have been connected to _Julius S.

Gerardo: Hi Julius


Gerardo: I'm going to buy a Lenovo product on Amazon UK


_Julius S: Thank you for choosing Lenovo sales chat. I’m Julius, your sales chat representative. My rep id is RF3. What can I do for you today?


Gerardo: this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Lenovo-IdeaCentr...128&sr=8-3


Gerardo: what I need to know is if the device can be turned on/off from the remote controller


Gerardo: i'd like to use it as a media center


_Julius S: Technically it should but I can not confirm as it is being sold by Amazon UK and I am a Lenovo.com sales representative only to confirm you will need to contact amazon Uk.

Gerazzo- I doubt that it can turn on with the remote. Since the remote has built-in mini-keyboard and mouse, you should be able to turn it off using the mouse the same way as any PC.....

I'm monitoring the Xtreamer website for the Ultra2 Deluxe that is really the top in terms of hardware.
It comes out with a 32Gb SSD with Openelec pre-installed. Ans it can be turned on-of from the MCE remote.

waiting for the 5th of april
