If you’re really and truly strapped for space but have a TV at your home or office, here’s a finger-sized gadget that can plug into a television and convert it into a regular computer.
The iBall Splendo is a PC-on-a-stick that you insert into a regular HDMI port of your computer (like you’d do with a Chromecast, for example), and it packs all of the processing, memory, networking and peripheral interfaces that you’d find in a regular computer. This ultra-tiny form factor was showcased by Intel earlier this year at the CES event in Las Vegas.
This dongle-like device is powered by an Intel Atom processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt Flash memory. It also runs Windows 8.1. The unit includes a wireless deskset comprising a keyboard and mouse, effectively enabling a complete Windows desktop experience.
You can purportedly run all of the regular applications you’d be able to on a similarly configured laptop, for example, with features including Intel HD graphics, multi-channel digital audio, a microSD slot, a USB port, Micro USB port, Wi-Fi and in-built Bluetooth 4.0. The unit is completely solid state with its fanless design, making it well-suited to education, home, office and potentially entry-level home theater applications.
The iBall Splendo will be available for sale across the country from the start of July via online and regular retail channels, and will be priced at Rs 8,999.
