Intel Jumps (Eventually) on the stick bandwagon

After virtually every other PC company on the planet has brought out their own PC on a stick, which of course (if you want Windows) generally leverage Intel processors, Intel have decided that it’s time they can do it better and/or differently. As can be seen it remains to be seen which one it is.

The specification reads as follows .

While the Intel® Compute Stick can fit in the palm of your hand, it’s what we fit inside of it that is truly remarkable. A quad-core Intel® Atom™ processor and your choice of operating systems: Windows* 8.1, Windows® 10 or Ubuntu* 14.04 LTS.

The Windows version includes 2 GB memory, 32 GB of on-board storage and comes with McAfee® Antivirus Plus for comprehensive protection from Trojans, viruses, spyware and more. The Ubuntu version has 1 GB memory and 8 GB of on-board storage. Both devices come with Wi-Fi* and Bluetooth* for connectivity, a USB port to connect peripherals and a micro SD card slot for additional storage.

Looks like a fine if typical specification list, and is available for around £80 + VAT in the UK.

The only question I have is WHY?
