We took a look at Intel's bite-size Compute Stick at CES, and we found the idea to be pretty intriguing. Now, you can actually order the pocketable Atom-powered PC. Liliputing reports that the Compute Stick is available for pre-order at Newegg in both Windows and Linux flavors.
The $150 Windows Compute Stick comes with a quad-core Bay Trail Atom processor backed by 2GB of RAM and 32GB of solid-state storage. Windows 8.1 is pre-installed. If Microsoft operating systems aren't your thing, Newegg is also offering the Compute Stick with an as-yet-unspecified version of Linux for $110, though this cheaper variant only comes with 8GB of storage and 1GB of RAM.
According to Newegg's product pages, both flavors of Compute Stick will begin shipping April 24.
