The advent of the laptop was obviously a huge turning point in the personal computer industry, allowing people to carry powerful computing experiences with them wherever they went. Notebook computers are clearly still hugely popular, but there’s a new type of computer that’s even more portable. The new lineup of Intel Compute Sticks pack surprisingly swift computing experiences into tiny little gadgets about the size of a flash drive. Simply plug a Compute Stick into any TV or monitor and you’ve transformed it into a full-blown desktop computer in less than a second. Intel offers a number of different options that range in terms of power and price, and you’ll find three great options in this post that start at under $130.
