IS THIS THE FUTURE OF COMPUTERS?
The intel compute stick has been around for a little while now, with other companies such as Asus and Lenovo jumping on the band wagon. Specifically these USB stick sized devices are a full blown computer that simply connects to the HDMI port of your TV.
With the ability to connect wirelessly to your network, keyboard, mouse etc they are in theory a good idea for anyone who just needs a basic computer. BUT...are they any good?
Well, the short answer to that question is...Not really. They have been limited to very small ATOM CPU's limited storage, terrible graphics and very little RAM. That however is all about to change with the release of Intel's next generation Compute Stick!
They boast the much more powerful Core M Skylake CPU in M3 M5 and M7. They also have up to 4 gb RAM, 8 gb internal storage with the ability to plug a drive of any size in for extra storage via a USB 3 port. They also feature the very acceptable Intel HD 515 graphics chip.
Are they as powerfull as a full size gaming machine?? NO...Not yet at least...but for a low cost computer that takes up no real estate on your desk...This writer wants one...Starting at around $300.00. - SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!!...
See you next time
