Intel Core m3 Compute Stick review: The most powerful stick PC yet


The Intel Compute Stick was a revolutionary product when first introduced in 2014. It put a full Windows 8 (later Windows 10) PC powered by an Intel Atom processor into a body not much larger than a USB key, all for a remarkable price of around $150 in...

This upgraded Intel Compute Stick has a faster Core m3 processor and extra USB ports on its power brick

It's much more expensive than the original Atom versions, and loses one USB port on the stick itself. Onboard storage is minimal

The latest Intel Compute Stick takes a big leap forward in power -- and price -- while still being capable of turning any TV into a PC when not traveling in your pocket.

The Intel Compute Stick excels as a media streaming, Web-browsing machine, and it's a $150 PC that can fit into your pocket

The tablet-grade performance isn't suitable for heavy tasks, and spotty Bluetooth connectivity limit this PC's functionality

This inexpensive PC is an exciting experiment, but the tablet hardware can't quite keep up with Intel's vision of a mini-PC.
