Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, inexpensive device for minimal computingI would definitely not want to try to use this device as a desktop replacement, but it's a fantastic option for what we are using it for: driving a secured digital display environment. This is the only stick PC I've been able to find that will allow installation of x64 Windows 10 Enterprise. I'm sure there will be more options in the near future, but this is my go-to device for this purpose right now. It plays video well and does everything else we need it to do. It only has a 32 GB drive, so I'm nervous that Windows updates will eventually fill the drive, but at under $125 per unit, I'm willing to take the risk and replace it with whatever is available if it does fill up. We've purchased 6 so far, and I would not be surprised if we buy another 100 in the next couple of months.Before you buy it, be aware that it does not come with an OS installed, and you'll want to run a BIOS update and grab the latest Intel graphics driver for this device right away. (Otherwise, you'll have no audio.) Otherwise, I'm extremely happy with this device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First one I bought was DOAWell that wasn't a good first impression. I bought this only to plug it in and said no bootable device found. Ran all bios updates etc, still no bootable device. So that stinks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great low-power, compact computer.I've been searching for a small system to run some test applications on, but most inexpensive compact devices are only available with 1GB of memory (not enough); for a slight price premium the compute stick has 2GB plus a number of other features.Note to the negative reviewers here: you're confused, the no bootable device error is exactly what should happen if you unpack and plug in, this system doesn't come with an operating system. You'll need to write an OS to a USB stick from another PC to get started (google "Ubuntu usb install" for one such option); if you don't want to do that buy a version with Windows already installed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 Intel Compute Sticks - all bricks out of the boxBought 3 of these to use as part of a digital signage system. All 3 gave 'no bootable device' errors right out of the box. Tried BIOS updates per Intel tech support, this did not resolve the issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waste of timeWe ordered 2 of these to run in a kiosk. First thing we found out, they do not come with an operating system contrary to "ready out of the box" as described. Second, they would not detect any USB devices and said "No bootbale device found" with install media inserted. Bought 2 more to replace them, USB keyboard worked, but still can't find any bootbale devices during set up. Intel suggested a BIOS update which did absolutely nothing.
