The Intel® Compute Stick is a new standard for stick computing devices that enables you to transform a display into a fully functional computer. Just plug the Intel Compute Stick into any HDMI* TV or monitor, connect your wireless keyboard and mouse and you’re ready to stream media, work, or play games. The built-in WiFi and on-board storage enables you to be productive immediately. We mean it when we say ready to go out-of-the box. A cost-effective computer for home, business, and PC-like embedded applications, the Intel Compute Stick is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, yet big enough for a quad-core Intel® Atom™ processor and your choice of operating systems: Windows 8.1* or Linux* Ubuntu. The Intel Compute Stick delivers a Mini PC with full-size performance, reliability, and ease of use so you can work when, where, and how you want. It’s the quality and value you’ve come to expect from Intel in a product designed and built by the company itself.
Anywhere you have a TV, you also have a Windows*-based computer
Plug the innovative form factor into an HDMI port on a television or display, connect a wireless keyboard and mouse, and you have a fully functional, Windows 8.1-based system. The compute stick has the performance you need to stream media, edit photos and files, or create projects. You can store your files locally for quick access or use the built-in wireless to access files from your home network and from the cloud. The quad-core Intel Atom processor gives you enough performance for casual gaming and there’s also a USB port to connect your peripherals.
Plug, play, and produce: Linux*-based computer makes collaboration at work simple
