    RE : Just a curious question about HDMI Mini Win 10 PC Stick

    I understand the Stick is not good enough for "power users" and sophisticated gurus, but.........
    why it is not popular among the "normal" computer users who use computers mainly for emailing, web surfing, movie/video watching , you know, the "normal" daily chores ?

    The price differential comparing to a laptop/desktop is huge.

    I am interested in getting a Intel Compute Stick for myself. 4GB-64GB variety.

    I imagine most people don't like to do e-mail or surf the web on the TV. So you still need a monitor (with HDMI port), keyboard, and mouse. The people who have all those things probably already have a PC that still works and is faster than one of these PC sticks.

    The people who don't will likely go towards a low-end laptop or tablet for simplicity's sake. I think you overestimate people's willingness to learn how to plug 3 things in. And I'm sure your local Walmart or Best Buy won't be pushing these very hard so most people don't even know about them.
