These days the best tech gadgets appear to be getting smaller and smaller. On Tuesday, Lenovo unveiled its first foray into the “PC stick” arena, according to Fox News.

Lenovo’s PC stick is a mere 15mm thin and easily fits in a pocket. The magic of this device is that it has the ability to turn any display screen into a functional desktop computer. The stick starts with 2GB of memory and 32GB of storage for a price of $129.

Initially the product will ship in the fall running Windows 8.1, but a free upgrade to Windows 10 will be available just as it is for all Windows users. The stick will also come with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for use with a wireless keyboard and/or mouse.

The PC also comes equipped with an HDMI port, MicroUSB 2.0 port and an SD card slot reader. Setting it apart from other competitors, the stick is also the first of its kind to come with built-in audio capabilities in case there are no speakers available in the display.

Although Lenovo has come into the PC stick game rather late, the growing number of options for the on-the-go businessperson may make these tiny gadgets the most popular computer options in the future.
