Beelink Pocket P2 stick computer now on sale
Beelink’s new stick computer based on Intel’s Compute Stick configuration is now on sale through the Stick PC Store for $293.
The Beelink Pocket P2 has 2GB of DDR3 RAM and 32GB of eMMC internal storage. Using a built-in micro SD reader, you can expand the internal memory to as much as 96GB. The USB 3.0 port allows for a faster interface with a supposed transfer rate of around 3,200 Mbits per second or 3.2 Gbits per second with the ability to read and write data at the same time.
While nearly $300 seems pretty pricey for a stick PC, keep in mind that this model runs Windows 8.1, features a 1.33Ghz Quad Core Intel Atom Z3735F processor, and a USB 3.0 port for expansion, making it significantly faster than the average stick PC. It supports Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. You can store files, like movies and music, or download applications, like Microsoft Office.
Beelink Pocket P2 has ports for HDMI, Micro SD, Micro USB, and USB 3.0 and the package includes a USB to Micro USB power cable, an HDMI extender cable, and an AC power adapter. The Pocket P2 measures 10.8 x 3.9 x 1.1m. It’s small.
Hannspree has a Micro PC Windows-based stick computer for about $200 and Esense has a colorful line of Windows-based mini PC sticks for about $100.
