Lenovo unveils the Ideacenter Stick 300: a $130 PC on a stick running Windows

Lenovo is introducing a brand new PC-on-a-stick device, called the Ideacenter Stick 300. The new device is designed to be taken anywhere and can transform almost any display into a Windows computer.

Lenovo’s new HDMI dongle is basically a PC in stick, and though we’ve seen this type of devices before, the Ideacenter Stick’s price might make it quite attractive. The device starts at $129 and comes with the following specs:

  • Intel Baytrail Z3735F CPU
  • Up to 2GB of RAM
  • Up to 32GB of storage
  • Speakers
  • WiFI 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0
  • 1 x HDMI, 1x Micro USB 2.0, SD card reader
  • Windows 8.1 with Bing

Obviously, this won’t be able to run Crysis, but when it comes to mobility, and getting some office work done, you can’t really beat a device the size of a memory stick.

As noted above the device will originally launch with Windows 8 but Lenovo confirmed that users will benefit from the free upgrade to Windows 10, following the operating system’s launch. There’s no clear launch date yet, but the Ideacenter Stick 300 will soon be available on Lenovo’s online store.
