Well we know we can install Windows 8.1 from a USB stick or run it on a USB Stick. But now how about running it from a USB that has ports in it.

Intel is apparently offering a way to do just that with a recently discovered USB stick that has a version of its Bay Trail-based Atom processor inside.


There’s two versions of this product available. One has the quad-core Z3735G Bay Trail chip with 1GB of RAM that can run the 32-bit version of Windows 8.1. The second has the Z3735F version of the chip with 2GB of RAM that supports the 64-bit version of the OS. It can also run Linux and Android.

The tiny stick still has enough room for two USB 2.0 ports, a microSD card slot, and a HDMI port. The stick can be bought with either 16 or 32 GB of onboard storage. Finally, there’s 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless hardware inside.

Alieexpress is currently selling the 32-bit version of the stick for about $125. We would assume the stick does not come with Windows 8.1 pre-installed. What uses would you find for such a PC?
