Computer When, Where, and How You Want

The Intel Compute Stick is a compute-on-a-stick device that's ready-to-go out-of-the-box and offers the performance and quality similar to other PC system manufactures. It comes pre-installed with Windows 10 to offer you a complete PC experience on an ultra-small, power-efficient device that is just 4" long, yet packs the power of a quad-core processor, on-board flash storage, Wi-Fi connectivity, and a micro SD card slot for additional storage. It's everything you prefer about your desktop computer in a device that fits in the palm of your hand.

Personal PC

The Compute Stick connects to your HDMI-enabled TV or monitor to provide you with the storage and performance needed for light productivity and gaming as well as social networking, web browsing, and streaming online media.

Business Ready

For small- to medium-sized businesses, this Stick PC can be utilized as a thin-client solution for delivering ultra portability and reliable plug-and-play simplicity with access for on-the-fly support.

PC-like Embedded

You can use the Intel Compute Stick to create digital signage kiosks with no-effort installation and deliver streaming or static HD content on displays located anywhere.

Windows 10

Start Menu

After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.

Cortana

Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.

Microsoft Edge

After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.

Windows Store

For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.

Windows Continuum

Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.

Xbox on Windows 10

Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

Hi Robert, the Intel Compute Stick is a self contained computer in the size of a USB thumb drive that can plug into an HDMI port on your TV for simple computing needs such as web browsing.

How the sound shall be generated from this device? is there any sound chip built in? or we can connect bluetooth speaker?
Asked by: Muhammad
Hi Muhammad, since the Intel Compute Stick connects to your TV or monitor using an available HDMI port you should be able to get sound through the TV or monitor speakers. If your TV or monitor does not have speakers you should be able to hook up speakers wireless via bluetooth or you could use speakers that have a USB connection and use one of the available USB ports on the compute stick. Thank you for choosing Intel.

Hello! You can install updates as long as you have an external sd-card you can use as a swap-partition-file. I've been using this compute stick for more than two years and up to now the internal memory is enough for the updates.A really versatile device.
