The 4 inch long computer plugs into an HDMI port in a TV or monitor. Connect your Bluetooth wireless (or USB) keyboard and mouse and you've got a complete Windows 8.1 (or Linux) computer that's just a little larger than a Google ChromeCast.
Here are the specs:
- 1.33GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3735F
- 2GB RAM
- 32GB storage
- MicroSD slot (for more memory)
- WiFi – 802.11 b/g/n
- Bluetooth 4.0
- Full-sized USB 2.0 port
- MicroUSB 2.0 port for power
- HDMI 1.4
- Windows 8.1 Bing (the same version that runs on the $200 HP Stream 11.)
The Windows version is $149 and the Linux version will be $89 (with 1GB RAM and 8GB storage.) Looks like it will be available in March. There's a Chinese company that manufactures them called MeegoPad (T01/TB05) complete with an Intel logo for $150 on Amazon (I think I'll wait.)
When they're available, I'll get one and review it here.
