Intel Compute Stick

David Pogue:

It’s called the Intel Compute Stick, and it’s really small (4 x 1.5 x 0.5 inches) — so small, you might mistake it for a USB flash drive. It’s the first Windows PC you might lose in your bag. If you were a movie character being chased by techno-terrorists, you could slip the whole thing into your sock.

Better yet: It’s not only the smallest Windows PC type in the world; it’s also the least expensive: just $150 (with 2GB of memory, 32GB of storage, and Windows 8.1).


That’s right. Instead of plugging a monitor into your PC, you now plug your PC into the monitor.

Raspberry Pi?

The Pi is assembly required. You can build something tiny and useful and reasonably stick-like out of it, but it is still a kit out of the box.

(I've bought four Pis. I could probably see myself buying a fifth to make something stick-like with. And I could still see getting a stick like this; it just depends on the use case.)
