If you’ve ever wanted to plug a Windows machine into your TV for a little hot and heavy Excel slinging, you’re in luck. Lenovo has just announced a $130 stick, the Ideacenter Stick 300, that connects to any display via HDMI.
These single-stick computers are nothing new but this one has an Intel Baytrail Z3735F CPU, 2GB of RAM, and up to 32GB of storage. It also has a built-in speaker and SD Card reader and runs Windows 8.1.
Why would you need this? Well you could simply stick a Windows PC onto your TV and play a little Steam or you could us it as a kiosk computer for public use. You could also carry your entire computer from hotel room to hotel room, plugging it in as needed and connecting a keyboard and mouse via Bluetooth. The possibilities, as they say, are endless. There is no release date but I’d love to see this little dongle in action.
