  1. Nice, but far too expensive imo. I’ve made my very own ‘computer-on-a-stick’ once and it has cost me under $25. I even made an entry about this on my weblog: GeekBlog.nl – Computer-On-A-Stick — The cheap way.

    Well, mine didn’t have a fingerprint reader and didn’t have all applications pre-installed, but it’s costing not even half of what this costs.

  2. Yes, quite: this is “stuff-on-a-stick”, not a computer on a stick. The stick does not run an “onboard operating system”; the stick is not “Linux based”.

    Useful, but the name is a little misleading…
