What fits in your pocket, has more connectivity options than Apple’s latest Macbook, and costs over $700 less? The Intel Compute Stick, an HDMI dongle that packs a full Windows 8.1 PC.

Intel announced the Compute Stick back in January, and now it’s up for pre-order at a handful of online shops including NewEgg and Amazon. The Windows 8.1 version of the Stick will set you back just $149.99 roughly the same price you’d pay for a retail boxed copy of Windows 8.1.

Despite its incredibly small size, the Compute Stick isn’t really all that different than one of Intel’s NUCs or a run-of-the-mill desktop PC. All you need is a monitor with and HDMI port to plug it into and a USB port to supply power to it.
