Smooth connectivity anywhere
It can connect to WiFi networks, and with a good network, it may even be capable of handling multiple browser tabs, large downloads and online video streaming.

It takes up almost no space in your luggage
Imagine being able to work anywhere there is an HDMI* display, all thanks to something the size of a USB thumbdrive. If you’re already bringing along a laptop, packing the compact Intel® Compute Stick gives you both small and big screen options.


It’s a portable workstation for business trips
If you’re a business traveler, you can check your email, get work done and even conduct presentations with this device. Best of all, it runs on Intel® Atom™ or Core™ M processors with up to 4 GB memory and 64 GB of on-board storage, so you can run most office apps.
