Lenovo launches its own budget compute stick

Lenovo has tapped into the mini PC market with its new affordable ideacentre Stick 300.

The ideacentre comes in time for the 2015 back to school period, as PCR previously reported, which is the first compute stick from the company, priced at £129.99. 

The device can transform almost any HDMI compatible TV or monitor into a fully functioning Windows-based PC, plus a 2.4GHz wireless mouse and keyboard can also be added.

An Intel Atom processor Z3735F powers the stick, along with 2G memory and 32GB of storage.

It will also come with Windows 8.1 but will be available for a free upgrade to Windows 10 once the OS launches July 29th, plus it boasts Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity,

Jun Ouyang, VP and general manager, for worldwide desktop and visuals at Lenovo, said: “We’ve looked at the computing needs of travellers, business people and families, and realised that a truly portable and affordable solution would be a significant benefit to users of all kinds.

“Our goal with the ideacentre Stick 300 is to give those users a sense of freedom and enhanced mobility, while packing a serious punch in a small device.”

Lenovo’s ideacentre will be available from both Dixons and Amazon starting from July.
