The Tiny Intel Compute Stick Is Now Available




/ 6 years ago

Compute Stick 1

The tiny and pocket-sized Intel Compute Stick, based on an Intel atom quad-core processor, is available now. The tiny computer plugs directly into your HDMI port and the current version is running Windows 8.1 with Bing, although Linux versions are planned as well. The pocket computer can now be bought from authorized dealers in most of the world, and best of all, it doesn’t even cost that much.

The Intel Compute stick can transform any HDMI display into an entire computer capable of working with productivity apps such as office or simple image editing, but it’s also perfectly suited for light gaming and streaming content, driving basic digital signage or enabling thin clients. It supports Wireless technology for its connection and you can hook it up to your existing Wireless 802.11 b/g/n network.

You’ll also get 2GB of memory and 32GB onboard flash storage and the Compute stick’s storage can be extended by the use of microSD cards and also comes with a USB port. Wireless devices can also be connected to the stick through Bluetooth 4.0

The Windows version is available now at e-tailers such as Amazon and NewEgg and Intel is also going to release a Ubuntu version later that only comes with 1 GB memory and 8 GB of onboard storage. The Windows version will cost you $149 while the smaller Linux model is expected to cost just $110.
