Intel Compute Sticks!
A Windows 10 computer that’s smaller (in area) than a cell phone (although chunkier). Pretty cool!
The ones that sell for less than $140 would be slow pieces of cr** because of the underpowered Atom processor, and only 32GB of storage of which 20GB would be used up by Windows 10.
However, the $389 Compute Stick has decent specs, with a Core m3 microprocessor and 64GB of eMMC storage. The Core m3 is just as powerful as a Core i3 you might find in a cheap laptop of approximately the same price. Although I’d say you are paying a $100 premium for the coolness factor of the compute stick.
What’s the use case for such a device?
You hate using laptop monitors and keyboards, but still want to be able to take your computer to the office and then take it home. One solution, of course, is laptop docking stations, but the more elegant solution is the Intel Compute Stick!
Or maybe you just want the world’s smallest Windows PC.
The compute stick would work best with a monitor like the Dell Ultrasharp U2415 which includes a powered USB 3.0 hub and an audio-out port.
