Flash Drive-sized Computer Runs Windows 8.1: PC on a Stick

 |  |  |  |  |  |  October 20, 2014


Nowadays you can get cheap dongles that turn most HDTVs or any monitor with an HDMI port into a dumb terminal for an Android device. But recently Meego unveiled the T01, a dongle that can run not only Android, but Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu as well, thanks to its Intel Bay Trail system-on-a-chip (SoC).

The Meego T01 is powered by the Intel Atom Z3735F/G processor, which has a 1.33Ghz quad-core CPU and 1GB to 2GB RAM. The SoC has been used in cheap HTPCs and Windows 8.1 tablets. The T01 has 16GB to 32GB of storage along with an HDMI out port, two microUSB 2.0 ports, a microSD card reader as well as support for Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0.  In other words… it’s a cheap HTPC. A tiny and cheap HTPC.

Aliexpress appears to be selling the Meego T01 for $110 (USD). I say “appears” because its brand and model are nowhere to be found on the product page, but the appearance and specs on there are exactly the same as those of the T01. Alibaba also has the Meego T01 listed on its site, but only for bulk orders. But like the recent flood of Android HDMI dongles, I wouldn’t be surprised if this compact Windows machine becomes available on Amazon or eBay soon as well.
