Intel Reveals HDMI Compute Stick

While visiting with Intel at CES 2015 they showed us something that really caught our attention. We all have seen HDMI sticks for streaming content etc, but what about an entire working PC in the form factor of an HDMI stick? Well Intel had a prototype of what they are calling their Intel Compute Stick and it looks very promising.

Again only a prototype at this point the Intel Compute Stick will have a quad-core Atom processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. On one side of the device is a USB port (think USB hub or USB receiver for keyboard / mouse) and a micro USB port which will be used for powering the device.

The opposite side had a microSD slot for adding more storage.

Intel is planning two versions of the compute stick initially. The first will be the Windows version that will ship with Windows 8.1 with Bing. That version is expected to be $149. There will also be a cut-down version with only 8GB of storage and 1GB of memory and it will ship with Ubuntu Linux. It will be in the sub-$100 range. Intel expects to have the first version of the Compute Stick ready for March.
