Quite a few players are producing candy-bar PCs these days, and we're finally starting to see some deviation from Intel's original Compute Stick formula. Zotac has announced its PC Stick, which is a little larger than usual but also has a couple interesting features.
The PC Stick packs an Intel Atom x5-Z8300, a quad-core chip with 1.44GHz base and 1.84Ghz turbo clocks. 2GB of RAM are on tap, along with 32GB of eMMC storage. There's also a microSD card slot for further storage expansion needs.
Wireless connectivity comes by way of 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. Zotac added an Ethernet port to the PC Stick, too. A USB 2.0 port and an HDMI output round out the base specs.
