Intel’s new HDMI Dongle available for $149

Intel has come up with a Windows 8.1 based Computer Stick at CES this year after they updated their process line-up with 5th generation chip in the same event. This device is basically an HDMI dongle which was teased somewhere in November last

The new HDMI dongle features an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and a micro SD card for additional storage. It supports 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi radio, Bluetooth 4.0, micro USB along with HDMI. The tiny computer will run Windows 8.1, Linux or Android. There is no information whether it will support Windows 10, the upcoming iteration of Windows.

The HDMI stick will be available in both Microsoft Windows 8.1 version ($149) as well as one with an Ubuntu Linux distro ($89), but sadly the Ubuntu variant will have just 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. The device would be available this March.
