Well the above is just a short one on these cheap windows ‘machines’. But funnily, these pretty cheap windows 10 PCs are not the conventional PC you use to know in almost all aspect ranging from price, size, flexibility as a matter of fact, you could comfortably put any of these PCs in your pockets because they’re very mobile, more mobile than laptops and netbooks even most smartphones.
These PCs am talking about are no other than the new sets of PC on dongles almost same size as your USB flash drive. Firstly it was Intel’s compute stick a $150 PC running windows 10 later Lenovo also released their’s the Ideacentre 300 Stick slashing the price to $129 hoping to put Intel on their toes, but the latest to join in the list of hardware brands launching a PC on Stick windows 10 is Archos a french company with their Stick WINDOWS 10 PC costing as little as $99. sounds so cool to be around when PCs are becoming cheaper by the day.
HERE’s HOW THESE LITTLE WINDOWS 10 PCs work
From the descriptions I provided you noticed they don’t come with any screen, speakers, keyboard or mouse. Asides the screen the rest can be bought anywhere.
The USB PCs make use of any TV or monitor with HDMI ports, so once plugged into any HDMI port on your TV. the TV automatically becomes a full fledged windows 10 PC of course you can get mouse, speakers, keyboard and other peripherals.
Specifications of these little windows 10 machines are:
THE INTEL’s COMPUTE STICK specs;
Quad-core 1.33GHz Intel Atom with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of solid state storage
THE LENOVO’s Ideacentre 300 Stick specs;
Intel Atom Z3735F processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of flash storage.
this actually runs windows 8.1 and would get a free upgrade to windows 10
Now Archos PC on stick specs;
Quad-core 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z3735F CPU,
Dual-core Intel HD Graphics (Gen7) GPU,
32GB storage (plus microSD card slot),
I think Archos killed it even with a lower price.
As you’ve seen they all run Intel’s Atom processors which is not all bad, I guess if you’re looking for low cost windows 10 pc to buy these are not bad ideas.
