Five desktop PCs that fit in your pocket: Intel Compute Stick, Google's Chromebit and more


The Chromebit will provide a modern, low-end, PC for under $100 when it launches this summer.

The Chrome OS machine can be plugged into any monitor or TV with an HDMI port. The device should have enough power to meet the needs of the average home user, with specs reported to include a Rockchip 3288 system on a chip, 2GB RAM, and 16GB storage, as well as 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity.
