Meego challenges Intel with its own Atoms

Cheap as chips on the run

MeeGoPad T02 is now out in the market and challenging Intel's Compute Stick with its price of $109.

The MeegoPad T02 has an Intel Atom Z3735F Bay Trail CPU at 1.33GHz, Intel HD Gen 7 graphics, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.

The MeegoPad T02 also has Windows 8.1 on board. The hard drive storage can also accommodate a few programs, making it ideal for office use but it also has a few advantages over the $150 Compute Stick.

It has two USB 2.0 ports, a 3.5mm audio jack, a microUSB port for powering the device, there is a microSD card slot for those who would like to get more hard drive space. The stick measures in at 110 x 43 x 10 mm and weighs only 48 grams, which allows anyone to take it anywhere.

There's a model without a Windows license that sells for only $90 and can run Ubuntu Linux.

For most users this would be a waste of time, but there are those who will want to use the MeegoPad as a secret squirrel machine and Linux is a bit better for that.

On the downside the MeegoPad lacks the same level first-party support that the Intel Compute Stick, but we are not talking big money here.
