Lenovo due to release Computer on a Stick
In the world of Windows PC sticks there isn’t much to choose from, there is the Compute Stick from Intel the MeeGoPad T02 second generation PC stick that came out in April this year and offers the same performance but for a better price than the Intel option.
Both these devices run on Windows 8.1 and have very similar performances with Intel Bay Trail processors. This week Lenovo has announced its joining the other two computer stick manufactures with its new PC on a stick release that it calls the Ideacentre Stick 300.
The main draw to all these devices is their portability and ability to turn any TV or monitor with an HDMI port into a computer that can do all the jobs you would normally do on any desktop PC.
Lenovo’s offering will start at around $130 US which puts it towards the higher end in price. It will be powered by an Intel Atom processor and should feature 2GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board Storage and have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity as well as a micro USB port and card reader.
This creation from Lenovo may find it hard to compete with the already established MeeGoPad T02 which offers a very similar spec for around 20 dollars less and include one extra USB port, however the arrival of a newcomer to this developing market will surely raise the stakes for future editions of these portable pocket computers.
The Lenovo Computer stick is due out sometime later this summer but if you dot want to wait why not check out the MeeGoPad T02 at Chinavasion which is available today at great wholesale prices.
