Technology is getting smaller, user friendly and efficient everyday, Intel’s Compute Stick is slated to push the envelope of the ‘Less is More’ philosophy even further. The Intel Compute Stick as the name implies is a computer on a stick. It is half the size of a portable hard disk and a little bigger than a traditional USB drive.

It comes with an Intel Atom quad-core processor and there are two variants based on the operating system. There is one with Windows 8.1 OS pre-installed, 32GB storage and 2GB RAM. The other variant has Ubuntu 14.04 and comes with 8GB storage and 1GB RAM. Both the devices have Wi-fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0, a USB 2.0 port for connecting peripherals and a microSD card slot for additional storage.

The Stick can be plugged into any TV or display with a HDMi port and provide computing on the go. Although not very powerful can easily complete tasks normal, everyday computing tasks such as email, instant messaging, Web browsing, word processing, spreadsheets, Microsoft Office, Quicken, and so on just don’t play 3D games on it and it will work just fine.

It will be distributed by iBall and was launched on Flipkart for Rs 9,990.
