From its humble beginning at Plaza Imbi in 1997, Thunder Match has now grown into a massive network of I.T chain stores throughout Malaysia. Today marked another milestone for the company as it has launched its own brand called STOM. Crafted with the help of Intel and Microsoft, the first batch of products from STOM come in the form of a 2-in-1 PC and a PC stick.
Called Spectrum i100, the new 2-in-1 PC from STOM features not only detachable form factor but also aluminum chassis for both tablet and keyboard portion of the PC. Built with a 10.6-inch full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS display, it is powered by a 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z3735F quad-core processor and carries 2GB of DDR3L RAM.

Priced at RM 1,099, its keyboard which also contains a full-size USB port comes as a standard right in the box.
As for STOM’s PS01F PC Stick which is priced at RM 599, some of its internal hardware are actually identical to Spectrum i100 including the 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z3735FR quad-core processor and 2GB DDR3L. However, the PS01F only contained half of i100’s internal storage at 32GB although users still able to utilize microSD card with the PC Stick shall they require further storage space.
