The World's Smallest PC the Size of a USB Stick

Sure, that fancy monster-rig you've built yourself can run PC games at high resolutions and maxed-out graphics, but can it fit in the palm of your hand? FXI's thumbdrive-sized Cotton Candy is a miniature PC that may lack the hardware muscle to run demanding apps, but is sexy enough to slip inside your pocket. At a length of only eight cm, the current version is equipped with a 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 Samsung Processor, a "quad-core" ARM Mali-400 GPU, 1GB DRAM, Wi-Fi, HDMI-out, a USB connector, up to 64GB of microSD storage space, and an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or Ubuntu OS. Capable of handling MPEG-4 and H.264 files, the bite-sized PC could be plugged in to a modern TV as a portable streaming media device, or you could also play Android games on your TV, using a smartphone for controls.

The FXI Cotton Candy will be available this March, at a pre-order price of $199.

Or you could get a Raspberry Pi for $25 that can play HD content.
