After Google Chromebit and Intel and its Compute Stick, Chinese tech company Lenovo is also prepping to roll out its ‘PC in a dongle’ product which is being called Ideacentre Stick 300.
It shares the same 1.3GHz Atom chip, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage as it’s in Polished version of Intel and its Compute Stick, and you’ll also have the familiar USB port and microSD card slot. The Ideacentre 300 Stick will retail for $129 dollars and will be available online and in retail stores from July. The device is much the same size as a traditional USB stick but packs a lot more power.
Additionally, if you happen to live in those regions where common use of Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, or Spotify is practiced, then you are in luck since Ideacentre Stick 300 features dedicated applications for the aforementioned streaming services and will cater to your entertainment needs. Underneath its minuscule form factor, is Intel’s Atom Z3735F SoC running, along with an undisclosed version of Windows 8.1.
The Lenovo Ideacentre Stick 300 will be available from lenovo.com, Dixons and Amazon from July.
