They just keep getting smaller and smaller. Amazon.com currently lists this for about $134 +tax, but I saw something on TV just yesterday regarding when electronics “deals” are best during the holidays season. The Monday before Thanksgiving is supposed to be the best for these types of items.
- New Generation compute on device that transforms any HDMI display into a fully functional computer
- A solution with plenty of storage and performance needed for light productivity, social networking, web browsing, and streaming media, such as Netflix, Hulu, or games.
- Enable thin-client solutions for small- to medium-sized businesses, delivering ultra portability and reliable plug-and-play simplicity, with Windows Remote Desktop access for on-the-fly support
- Windows 10 Pre Loaded (includes PowerShell)
It has a USB port, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 support and a mini-USB connector for power, Pre-installed 32-bit OS: Windows 10 and micro SD card slot for additional storage
NOTE: I asked about PowerShell being included with this Windows 10 because I recently have been learning some PowerShell scripting so that I could modify and use a “content migration” script via the Canvas LMS API. *Versions of Python (v 2.x & 3.x) are included with the Rasberry Pi that I have. I also have one of the Logitech wireless keyboards (shown below) that I use with the Raspberry Pi. It is slightly smaller than a full-sized keyboard… and I think it is the location of the “Shift” key that causes some problems when I am using Python.
I have a Chromecast that is hooked up to my 40″ HDTV so I know how nice it is to push web video/audio to the larger screen.
