So-called stick PCs like the hãng asus VivoStick PC (TS10) ($129) turn any TV or HDMI-equipped display into an all-in-one desktop PC. That"s a natural fit if you need lớn run Windows-only programs or plug-ins (like a VPN service to lớn your corporate office) on a really big screen, or if you"d rather use a PC to stream your movies và music. It"s also one of the easiest ways to lớn carry a PC along with you in your pocket, since it"s much smaller than even your smartphone.

Connectivity isn"t bad for a stick PC. The system has a micro USB port for power (a cable và AC adapter are included), along with a headset jack, a USB 2.0 port, and a USB 3.0 port. The headset jack is nice in case your HDMI display lacks internal speakers or if you"d like to hook up the VivoStick to an external stereo or headphones.

The one caveat is the lack of a microSD card slot, which could expand system"s miserly 32GB of eMMC flash storage. When testing the VivoStick, I noticed that there was only 15GB of space free, which is barely enough for a few installed programs và maybe one movie download. Both versions of the Compute Stick & the Lenovo Ideacentre Stick 300 have microSD thẻ slots that let you địa chỉ cửa hàng up to lớn 128GB more local storage.
