Asus recently announced a tiny PC, ASUS VivoStick, which comes in a form of the USB stick. This gadget is meant to be the competition of Intel’s Compute Stick, and it offers the similar performances and specifications, as its rival.

ASUS VivoStick PC is a fully genuine PC powered by Windows 10, which is slightly bigger that an ordinary USB Flash Drive. It also offers solid performances for the device of its size. It comes with a 2GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4, two USB ports, an audio jack and is powered by Intel’s Cherry Tail processor and uses Intel’s graphics.

So, as you can see, it’s not just a document manager and email sender, but an actual PC. It’s actually not a powerful PC, which you can use for gaming or some demanding graphical work, but you can’t expect wonders (at least for now) from a computer that can fit into your pocket.

Take Windows 10 with you on a USB stick

To run this interesting piece of technology, you just have to plug it to the HDMI input of TV or compatible monitor, and you’ll have a fully-functioning computer in seconds. Of course, you also need a keyboard and a mouse to use it.

If you don’t want to use both USB ports just for keyboard and mouse, you can also connect an USB hub, and you’ll be able to connect more than two accessories.

This handy device, measured at 138x34x15mm, will be available for the price of  $129, but unfortunately, that’s the only thing Asus revealed for now. We don’t have any more details about the device, and the release date is still unknown.

Computers of this kind can be seen as the computer of the future, and it’s not a surprise that big companies like Intel and Asus are working on their own USB-computers.
