Asus VivoStick PC (TS10)

 

The Asus VivoStick is a full 64-bit Windows 10 computer that's a lot smaller than a hip flask, or even a cigar tube. It's short on memory and storage, but can instantly turn a display or TV into an all-in-one PC for $129.

Fits in your pocket. Plugs directly into an HDMI port on a monitor or TV. Includes USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports. Supports dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Uses 64-bit Windows. Headset jack.

Lacks a microSD card slot. 2GB of memory and only 15GB of free storage space. Remote app needs work.

Performance and Conclusions The VivoStick is powered by an Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor with Intel HD Graphics, so you can expect competent day-to-day performance. This is indicated by its (slightly) above-average score on the PCMark 8 Work...

Asus VivoStick PC (TS10) Review and Ratings

 

A light-duty, Atom-based Windows 10 stick PC, the VivoStick stands apart, with apps for remote control via phones and tablets. A MicroSD slot is all that stands between it and stick supremacy.

Slick design ; Mobile apps allow for basic PC control from a smartphone or tablet ; 802.11ac, Bluetooth, and two USB ports ; Dedicated headphone/mic jack

No MicroSD slot, and just 32GB of storage ; Sluggish for even moderate multitasking

How to pick a Windows stick? Part of the equation is price, but these sticks are generally all cheap enough that the savings between them is folly to overemphasize if the sacrifice is slower Wi-Fi, less storage, or fewer ports.

Asus VivoStick PC TS10

 

Den rekordlille PC-en fra Asus kan kobles direkte til HDMI-inngangen på TV-en.

Asus VivoStick PC er et spennende stykke teknologi, som med sin ultrakompakte størrelse beveger grensene for hvor det er mulig å bruke PC-plattformen. Adgangen til å kjøre en verden av Windows-programmer fra baksiden av TV-en åpner muligheter, og er et...

Pierwszy minikomputer Intel Compute Stick (STCK1A32WFC) pojawił się niemal 2 lata temu. Nie zawojował rynku, a jednym z powodów były problemy konstrukcyjne i niska wydajność. Od tego czasu do sprzedaży trafiło kilka takich urządzeń, różniących się...

El nuevo Vivostick TS10 tiene un formato más grande que otros modelos anteriores, pero también más potente y capaz. De hecho, creo que el diseño es uno de sus fuertes porque comparado con otros modelos “chinos” que hemos tenido entre manos, este les da...

Tycker den uppfyller det den ska göra. Jag kan titta på 1080p filmer via Kodi streamat utan att det laggar.
