Intel Compute Stick Expected in Europe This April

Intel’s impressive dongle PC, the Compute Stick, is coming to Europe this April, according to Fudzilla.
The Compute Stick, first unveiled by Intel at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2015 back in January, is an HDMI dongle, nearly twice the size of Google’s Chromecast, with a 1.33GHz Atom Z3735F processor, 32GB on-board storage, and 2GB RAM. It is powered through a microUSB port, and has an additional USB 2.0 port for peripherals or extra storage, plus a microSDHC slot and 802.11b/g/n wireless, and Bluetooth 4.0.
Two versions of the Compute Stick will be available: the more expensive model (€180) ships with Windows 8.1, while the other runs Linux (€120+), though the Linux distro it comes with is as yet unknown.
There was quite a buzz about Intel’s Compute Stick after it was revealed at CES 2015, but the price-hike of around €50 since then will no doubt temper some of that excitement.
