Meet the Itsy-Bitsy Laptop

Here’s something your audiovisual company will love. Picture a cord-free, dongle-free breakout presentation—all thanks to a device the size of a candy bar. Google’s new Asus Chromebit is a computer that fits in the palm of your hand and can be plugged into any LCD screen. This will function differently than Google’s Chromecast, which streams content from a laptop to a separate screen. Intel is launching its own version of this micro-laptop called the Intel Compute Stick, and Dell’s Wyse Cloud Connect is already on the market. But the Chromebit, when it becomes available later this year, will cost less than $100, making it the least expensive computer on the market.
