Intel Unveils Pocket-Size Computer That Plugs into TVs - Digits - WSJ

More details on Intel's new Compute Stick

"Intel is known for its chips, but it also combines them into systems to be distributed to customers for demonstration purposes. Now the Silicon Valley giant is taking a more unusual step: developing a tiny computer it plans to sell directly.

The company used this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nev., to disclose plans for the Intel Compute Stick, a pocket-size device that plugs into the HDMI port on a TV or computer monitor. The unit includes an Intel Atom processor, Wi-Fi, 32 gigabytes of storage and a slot to plug in an SD card for further capacity.

Intel says a version for the device running Windows 8.1 will cost $149 and arrive by the end of the first quarter. It plans to offer a Linux-based version for $89."
