The Intel Compute Stick, a new pocket-sized computer based on a quad-core Intel Atom processor running Windows 8.1 with Bing, is available now through Intel Authorized Dealers for much of the world.
The Intel Compute Stick can transform any HDMI display into an entry computer capable of working with productivity apps, playing local or streamed content, driving basic digital signage or enabling thin clients.
It supports Wireless 802.11 b/g/n, a microSD card for expandable memory, MicroUSB power supply and Bluetooth 4.0 for keyboard and mouse.
The Windows version, available now, is expected to retail starting at US$149. A Linux version with Ubuntu, available later this year, is expected to retail for US$110.
Online etailers such as Amazon, Newegg, BestBuy.com and others are expected to carry the product.
