A few months after some industrious Chinese manufacturers were already selling them, Shows Intel Another cool use for its atomic chips - in the form of a computer PC A disk that has been compressed to a USB drive size
With all due respect to the tiny NUCs (which also continue to get smaller with each new generation), Intel has other super-economical products that can fit into an even more compact shell - and now it's officially proving it with Displays the Compute Stick computer, Which is not significantly larger than a drive USB fast.
