Q-  What is PC on a stick? What can it do for me?

— Jaishree M

A: PC-on-a-stick is characterized by a tiny form factor device that resembles a dongle, generally using an ARM or Intel Atom system on a chip, has low energy usage and fosters portability at low prices. An example of this is the Intel Compute Stick, which fits in the palm of your hand and can easily transform your TV or any other HDMI compatible device into a fully functional computer offering full Windows 8 experience. You can search the web, share your photos, keep an eye on your email or do any of the basic routine tasks that you do on your computer today. All you need is a wireless keyboard and mouse and you’re good to go.
