    Overpriced by £50 in the UK, what a rip.

    Where do you get the figure £50 from?

    Edit, oh I see, £170 - never mind.

    I've had the quanta/hannspree one for months now. Same specs as the intel 2GB one and cost me £100. Sure the price of these will drop to the same once supply catches up.

    Seems hideously expensive considering a same-spec tablet can be had for <£80...

    No thanks. Much prefer the looks of the Chromebit featured the other day (by looks I don't just mean aesthetics.. which are far superior anyway).

    For just over £100 you can get a fully functioning mini-itx AM1 system.

    It does seem awfully overpriced when compared to similar spec tablets :/

    You can pre-order the same stick on Scan's website for £130.

    Re: Intel Compute Stick goes up for pre-order, available from 24 April

    I just cannot get excited by these.......I thought for most people the chromecast did the job at a considerably lower price....

    The only real use I see for these are smaller thin clients for businesses.

    Hopefully they will add power into the HDMI spec soon so these devices don't require multiple connections.

    £130 is better but still too much, compared to the recent HP Stream 7 (even at RRP of £75 not the £50 they were selling them at) this stick seems too much.

    Same processor, 1GB extra Ram and HDMI but no screen, no battery, but nearly/over twice the price?

    NB/ I know the CPUs are a different (G vs F) but I believe the only difference is the ability to address more than 1Gig?
