Well, actually it will arrive in March per Intel’s CES 2015 announcement.  You can think of the Compute Stick as an oversized USB drive that utilizes the HDMI port on a monitor and boots to Windows.  With initial reported costs of around $149, will this be the direction that enterprises head with their PC refresh in the future?  If I were still in IT operations, I would definitely be researching this solution as it is cheaper than traditional workstations and the promise of VDI.
