Bottom Line

The Intel Compute Stick CS125 is a mini-PC that will allow you to enjoy all of your favorite Windows 10 apps on your HDTV. But the limited storage space will require the use of a microSD card or an external hard drive.

The Intel Compute Stick CS125 BOXSTK1AW32SC is a bestselling micro-PC that has been praised for its tiny size, ultra-portability, new generation Atom processor, fast eMMC flash storage and for its Windows 10 operating system. But the storage space is very limited, you only get 32GB and with Windows 10 installed you are only left with about 18GB to use for your apps and files. You can install a microSD card to expand the storage up to an additional 128GB. While it is in no way a powerhouse PC, it will allow you to use it as a media PC with your HDTV.

    For $159, the Intel Compute Stick is a pretty good deal. You get a full license for Windows 10 Home and a PC that’s ready to go out of the box—just add a display, a mouse, and a keyboard to get started. And unlike Google’s stick computing product, the Asus Chromebit, you’re not restricted to just a handful of tasks in a limited environment. You can do anything that requires Windows.
