Intel sells and impressive line of Computer Sticks, which run all the way from a basic Atom processor at $37 to the Intel Compute Stick CS525 Computer with Intel Core m5 vPro processor – albeit with no OS – (BLKSTK2mv64CC) around $485. To get a sense of that last processor, the Core m5-6Y57 processor powered the mid-range 2016 12″ Apple MacBook.

Simply put the Intel Stick can be a bit limited – depending on what power of stick you buy – but if all you are interested is a portable computer for media streaming, web browsing, or word processing, then this can be a great bargain.

It would be perfect for portable business presentations.
