I can't wait for these to be available.

This is the Intel Compute Stick, a humble HDMI dongle that houses a full desktop computer experience. You get a quad-core 1.33GHz Intel Atom processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of solid state storage—It has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and both a full-size USB port and a microSD card slot for expandability. It will cost 150 dolalrs and comes with Windows 8.1 installed
Specs: http://iotsolutionsalliance.intel.co...ocessor-z3735f

I'm all over this fucker when it drops.

Id also rather use a dongle than a direct plug but I guess you can always add that with M-F adapter

yeah i am also sort of interested in this... for rents grans and other invalids

Chromecast is not easy enough, or sufficiently idiot proof... A shitty slow computer with a mouse and keyboard shouldn't be a hard sell.

its nice for 24"+ monitors with hdmi input as spare bedroom TVs, garage etc

I haven't opened mine yet, but i know ill use it somewhere. Parents is a decent idea. The fireTv stick comes with a remote which is pretty handy

one of the high-ups at my company, who is being helped thru this process by my boss has a goal of displaying his Surface Pro 3 on a large flatscreen on his wall. 55", using the whatever microshaft chromecast Miracast dongle

First TV there was some sort of "issue..." boss wouldn't explain... Being replaced by a 4K somethingorother because <reasons>

I really just hope his expectations are very low... supposedly only going to be for lame little power points but he has been joking about watching foosball on it... pfffffffffft if srs, GLWT...
