At the on-going IFA 2015, Asus has just taken the curtains off its VivoStick, a HDMI dongle that runs on Windows 10. Just plug it into a monitor or even a TV, and you will get a full-fledged Windows PC, all you need is a mouse and a keyboard to start working.
The VivoStick is similar to Intel’s Compute Stick, and even Lenovo’s ideacenter Stick 300. It is powered by an Intel Cherry Trail processor and uses Intel graphics, paired with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The device, which measures at only 138 x 34 x 15mm, two USB ports (one USB 2.0 and one USB 3.0), a headphone jack, and speakers. There’s also Bluetooth 4.0 on board and support for 802.11n Wi-Fi.
It’s not a powerful device of course, but it is definitely enough for light usage, and enough for you to get some work done. The Asus VivoStick will retail at US$129 (about RM545), making it more affordable than the Intel Compute Stick.
