With Windows 10 now up and running, maybe you want to go a step further and get it on a portable basis as well as at home. In that case, you may be interested in the MagicStick.
This is a crowd funding effort that has been raising money on the Indiegogo site. Currently, it has got to $232,000 (£150,000), which is more than four times the original funding goal. So what is the MagicStick all about?
This is a dongle that fits in an Intel Cherry Trail processor and also 8GB of RAM. It fits in an HDMI socket on a TV or monitor and could be used with a keyboard and mouse or else controlled through a smartphone application. This means that you can carry out your computing just about anywhere you want.
Two Versions to Choose From
Actually, there are two versions of the stick you can choose from, the MagicStick Wave and the cheaper MagicStick One. The Wave has a 16 core GPU and 64GB of storage. It can currently be pre-ordered for about £160. This gives you Android plus a 3 month trial version of Windows 10, with the fully activated version you have to pay £30 more, or else go for Linux for free. For £50 more you can double you storage level up to 128GB.
The MagicStick One is a cheaper version that comes in at about £65 and gives you 2GB of RAM with 32GB of storage space. Anyone who orders their stick just now can expect to get it through before the end of the year.
Do you like the idea of using a stick to get access to Windows 10, or do you prefer to use the traditional approach?
