Intel Compute Stick - Available Spring 2015

Intel Compute Stick – Available Spring 2015

This Atom Z3745D-based HDMI dongle is ready to plug into your TV or monitor. It will be pre-installed with Windows 8.1 or Linux and has built-in WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board storage, a standard USB port and a micro SD card slot for extra storage. A Micro-USB port is also on board for power supply. Basically it’s a Baytrail-T tablet without the screen, battery and speakers.

Pricing is $149 which is about the same as the cheapest Windows 8 tablet with HDMI. Of course if you don’t need that screen and don’t want the ‘bulk’ of an Intel NUC, this is a cleaner solution. A 1GB/8GB version with Linux is also planned at $89, which sounds like the perfect Openelec module to me!

Mobilegeeks got a brief hands-on at CES 2015.
