The computer-on-a-stick is not a newnor always terribly successful—idea. But that hasn’t stopped Lenovo, which has announced its own stab at the concept: the Ideacenter Stick 300.


The new device comes in several spec levels, featuring an Intel Baytrail CPU, up to 2GB of RAM, up to 32GB of storage, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, and SD card reader, HDMI out and a single Micro USB port. It will run Windows 8.1 out of the box, but will also receive a free upgrade to Windows 10 when the OS launches.

In its cheapest guise, the stick will cost $140 though availability is yet to be announced. We wonder if the device can overcome some of the fundamental problems that make the (very similar) Intel offering, the Compute Stick, a massive flop. We sure hope so. [Neowin]

Back in the day I always thought pc on tv would be the future but now that people pretty much have a pc in their pockets I don’t think it’s as interesting as it once was. On top of that there are already smart tvs with fb, YouTube etc so the casuals are covered... If hardcore gamers/people really wanted a Tv to play their amazing games on they just hookup their desktop or laptop to the TV and go from there.

Just not sure who this is for.
