Intel Meegopad Windows HDMI TV, Thumb Drive-Sized PC with Windows 8.1

We've heard of Windows 8.1's ability to install a fully working, bootable version of itself on USB flash drives, but we haven't seen many examples of it, so Intel has decided to provide one.

To be fair, anyone who owns a copy of the OS can make a bootable USB drive, so it's not quite such a big deal. Probably why Intel didn't even bother releasing a PR about it. Still, stealth release or no, the new Meegopad Windows HDMI TV stick differs from the norm because of just that: it's an HDMI stick, not a USB stick. So it's a sort of mini PC / media player device in the shape of a thumb drive the size of a USB stick.

Inside, you have a quad-core 1.83 GHz Intel Atom Z3735F processor with 2 MB cache, 16 GB or 32 GB eMMC storage space, 1-2 GB of DDR3 RAM, a microSD card slot, two micro USB 2.0 ports, Bluetooth 4.0, and Wi-Fi (802.11n). A power button is located on the outer shell. As for software, there's not much pre-loaded other than the OS. Speaking of which, you can have it loaded with Android or Linux if Windows 8.1 isn't your thing. The price is of $110 / €110, plus $14.5 / €14.5 more if you want 2 GB instead of 1 GB RAM.
