Lenovo Enters the Computer-on-a-Stick Market with $130 Ideacentre 300 Stick


Intel Atom Z3735F Processor

All of a sudden the next big thing in the personal computing world is stick computers. Intel, Dell, and Google have all released pocket-sized desktops. In the wake of the news, Lenovo has revealed their computer-on-a-stick offering with the Ideacentre 300 Stick. The extra-tiny Windows PC is much like the stick released by Intel except that it is sleeker and more polished.

Like Intel’s Compute Stick they both have the same 1.3 GHz quad-core Intel Atom processor Z3735F, 2GB of Ram and 32 GB of built-in storage, they also have a USB port and microSD card slot. The Ideacentre Stick 300 is 15mm thick and easily fits in the palm of your hand. The major difference is the price. Intel’s Compute Stick is $150 whereas the Ideacentre 300 Stick will be only $129.

This portable gadget works by plugging into your HDMI-compatible devices like your flat-screen TV. The device is aimed at business people who spend a lot of time traveling for work. The $129 dongle can transform almost any HDMI-compatible TV or monitor into a functioning Windows-based PC. Just attach a 2.4 GHz wireless keyboard and mouse, and you’ll be able to create documents, surf the Web, and mess around on social media. On July 29th, the device will ship with Windows 8.1. But one of the best features of the device is that it will be upgradeable to Windows 10.
