Everyone likes portable electronics and computers which is why cell phones are so popular. But so are tablets and notebooks which can give you full processing power but without the cord.
Manufacturers keep pushing miniaturization and the latest is the Sirius B from Ockel. Smaller than many cell phones, the Sirius B is a full-fledged Windows 10 computer complete with HDMI video output, USB, wireless, Bluetooth, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of flash storage, an SD card slot, and a quad-core Intel CPU.
And at $189, it might just replace your desktop PC.
Computers continue to get smaller to help us with moving data and processing where and when we need. Intel has now moved this idea to another level with its Compute Stick.
While there have been several small computing devices of this size in the past, what makes this unique is that it is available with either a full version of Windows 8.1 or Ubuntu. And it has a reasonable performance thanks to its Atom Bay Trail processor (by Intel, of course).
The Windows 8.1 version comes with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and plugs into any display’s HDMI input – instantly converting it into a full fledged computer.
