Great as an Intel USB stick presented Compute Stick. It is a revolutionary computer capable of transforming a TV into a working PC. Just plug it into your TV's HDMI socket and you're done.

Compute Stick has very small dimensions, 10 x 3,4 x 1,2 cm; will soon be available in two different versions: 

  • Intel Atom 2GB RAM, 32GB flash memory for data storage, and pre-installed Windows 8.1.
  • Intel Atom with 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of flash memory for data storage and Linux Ubuntu preinstalled.

Available for purchase a few days ago, the first version, the one with Windows 8.1 costs about 180 € and mount one 2.0 USB port and functionality Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, door HDMI 1.4 and a card slot micro SD with the possibility of expanding the memory up to 128 GB. Finally we find a micro USB for powering the Compute Stick and the physical button to turn the computer on and off in one click.

In the package, in addition to the device, there is the micro USB power supply with adapters and a convenient HDMI extension cable. 

By connecting the device to the power supply, the computer turns on immediately and in a few seconds you are in front of the Windows 8.1 configuration screen. Since there is only one USB port, you will need to have a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard. Of the 32 GB of space available, 11 GB are occupied by the operating system and other pre-installed applications, leaving about 20 GB. For this it is advisable to buy an SD memory to be inserted in the slot (on the left side of Compute Stick) or a capacious external HD.

Browsing the Internet is fluid and watching videos Full HD su Youtube it is not subject to blockages or slowdowns. All this is also due to a fan that turns on as soon as 65 degrees are exceeded. 

Microsoft Office it is not included in the price while as regards Skype, since there is no video camera, it only works as a real chat. 

In conclusion, the Intel Compute Stick works very well and is certainly a good product for those who travel often, both because they can connect it to the TV via HDMI even in the hotel room, and because they can, through such a small instrument, listen to music. and watch movies just like a media station.
