Well Intel had a prototype of what they are calling their Intel Compute Stick and it looks very promising.
Valve has been making progress with Steam OS and In-Home Streaming, and hardware vendors have been trying to find a balance of performance and value. Sporting a small lightweight form factor, quad-core processor, and an SSD, Syber Vapor STREAM has found that balance of performance and value.

Normally when Intel launches a product it is a pretty big deal, but for some reason they have quietly released their Meegopad T01 HDMI TV stick.
