Intel Compute Stick (2nd Generation) Review

Back in early 2015 at CES Intel showed us a really cool device that they were really excited about. It was their Compute Stick, which was an entire PC in the form factor of an HDMI stick. It is pretty awesome that with this device you can turn any HDMI display into a computer! The tagline of “Connect. Compute. It’s that simple.” really fits the Compute Stick perfectly. Intel released the first version of the Compute Stick in 2015 and now it is on its second generation. The second generation makes improvements over the first generation product, inside you have an Intel Atom x5-Z8300 processor (Cherry Trail), 2GB of DDR3L memory, and 32GB of onboard storage. Intel has also added a second USB port (compared to the single port on the 1st generation) and has improved wireless connectivity with 802.11ac wireless and Bluetooth 4.2 with a 2x2 antenna. Let’s take the 2nd generation Intel Compute Stick for a spin and see what it can really do!

We first got a look at Intel's Compute Stick at CES back in January. It is a tiny computer with an HDMI connector on one end. You can plug it into the HDMI port on your TV or monitor and you have an all-in-one desktop that can run Windows or Linux. The device is expected to be available later this month and a few retailers are taking pre-orders.
