Asus VivoStick: PC-USB stick with Windows 10
Any monitor (or TV) and the new HDMI stick from Asus is all you need to work with a fully functional computer. Oh, I almost forgot – you still need keyboard and mouse. Of course, VivoStick is not an ordinary flash drive for storing information, a computer with Windows 10 that will fit into any pocket.
For $ 129 the manufacturer offers a device with 2 GB RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, a microSD slot, two USB 3.0 ports, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11 n and even a headphone Jack. Sounds unbelievable, but the Taiwanese manufacturer managed to combine all this in a compact package with superior design. The list of characteristics is also mentioned Intel Cherry Trail in combination with graphics processor from the same manufacturer.
VivoStick can’t compete with laptops and desktop PC high-class, but that is not its purpose. The weight of the device is barely 70 grams and its physical dimensions are 138 x 34 x 15 mm.
Date of commencement of sales is not reported, but presumably this mini PC will be in stores before the end of this year.
