Lenovo has introduced ideacentre Stick 300, a compact PC stick running full Windows 8.1 with free upgrade to Windows 10. This is similar to the Intel Compute Stick that will let you transform your TV or monitor with a HDMI port to a full-fledged PC. This will be more useful for travelers since it’s portable.
It is powered by a Quad-Core Intel Baytrail Z3735F Processor, has 2GB RAM, expandable memory up to 32GB with a micro card slot, features WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI, a micro USB port for power and a USB 2.0 port to connect accessories. It measures 100 x 38 x 15mm.
The Lenovo ideacentre Stick 300 starts at US $129 (Rs. 8200 approx.) and will roll out through retail stores and online starting in July.
Commenting on the announcement, Jun Ouyang, vice president and general manager, Worldwide Desktop and Visuals, Lenovo, said:
We’ve looked at the computing needs of travelers, business people and families, and realized that a truly portable and affordable solution would be a significant benefit to users of all kinds. Our goal with the ideacentre Stick 300 is to give those users a sense of freedom and enhanced mobility, while packing a serious punch in a small device.
