When it comes to computing power, most of the smartphones that we hold in our hands already come with their fair share of juice, although I am quite sure that more can still be done. However, there seems to be a new “breed” of computers that might just cater to those who want something small – very small, such as the Intel Compute Stick, and the MeegoPad T01 would be one of them.
In fact, the MeegoPad T01 claims to be one of the smallest computers available in the market that will run on an Intel processor alongside Windows 8.1 as the operating system of choice. There is one snag in this entire setup, however – it looks as though this particular model does not ship alongside a licensed version of Windows.
The MeegoPad T01 started to go on sale in November last year and for those who have started to receive their units at their doorsteps have realized that the reason behind this unbelievably low price ($100 a pop for some) is because it ships alongside an unactivated trial version of Windows 8.1. In other words, you will need to pony up the money to purchase a license or install your very own operating system. What a bummer, huh?
