Lenovo announces tiny Stick computer


The IdeaCenter Stick 300 isn't much larger than a USB dongle, but claims to offer enough grunt to turn any monitor or TV into an "entertainment station."

Stick 300 measures only 15 mm thin, boasts Intel® Atom™ Processor Z3735F, 2G of memory and 32G of storage. It will initially ship with Windows 8.1 but will be available for a free upgrade to Windows 10 starting on July 29. Fully enabled with WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0, the ideacentre™ Stick 300 provides the connectivity you need to power up at any time.

It's going to be $130. The announcement follows Google's Chromebit, cheaper at $100, with an ARM CPU and 16GB of storage, and Intel's Compute Stick, a little more expensive and similarly-specced.
