The word “computer” means something very different in 2017 than it did even a decade ago. We now carry computers with us in our pockets everywhere we go, and they’re getting more and more powerful each year. Of course, progress is also being made in desktop computing. If you don’t believe us, you’ve clearly never seen the Intel Compute Stick. This tiny little device is a desktop PC that fits in your pocket. Plug it into an HDTV or any other monitor with an HDMI port, and it’s instantly transformed into a full-blown PC.
