Pc in a memoery stick
« on: June 29, 2015, 04:35:45 PM »
Anyone actually tried the new PC-on-a-stick from Lenovo?

It seems crazy that a small thing like that will be able to show anything at all lol...but I quite like the idea of it. Much better than Chromecast IMHO, since the computer is stuck right into the TV itself.

That's neat. I can't believe what they can cram into such a small device these days, simply amazing.

Just imagine the size of the computers half that spec twenty years ago.  :D

In Norway is rumoured to cost around 800,- kroner, thats about $110 USD I think. Though it will probably wary a lot.

If it turns out to be close to that price, then that's not a unreasonable price if it works OK and you have need for such an item.

Doing a Google shows that there are several companies getting into this market, including one with a stated price of $99 for a Windows 10 version. We all may end up with one of these thingies.  ^-^

Björn, jag har någonting liknande i lastbilen. Istället för att ha en stor dator eller tung bärbar dator med sig i väskan har man bara stickan som man pluggar in i lastbilens monitor som har usb. Är linux ubuntu på stickan och den är på 128gb. Det räcker för att ha det nödvändiga som mail, facebook, gps, film, musik mm på :)
