Asus VivoStick runs on Windows 10, has 2GB RAM and all that pocket friendliness for $129

Hardware, Technology: General
We've had Windows-powered sticks around for some time now but the new Asus VivoStick isn't too bad especially since it costs only $129 and boots on Windows 10 out of the box; or as you can say, out of the pocket.   Asus rolled out the VivoStick at the 2015 IFA trade show happening in Berlin, Germany right now. Measuring 138 x 34 x 15 mm, the stick is a pocket-friendly PC you can carry anywhere you go. It's even smaller than the Remix Mini, albeit a tad bit costlier. However, on the average, the Asus hardware is way cheaper than the smart sticks in its specs level. VivoStick comes with 2GB of RAM, 32GB storage, Cherry Trail processor from Intel, two USB ports, one microUSB 2.0 port and a male HDMI fuse for plugin to the host device. Image credits: AOL, Asus
