If you already have a netbook, tablet, or smartphone (or all three), you’ve probably got your mobile computing needs covered. But if you somehow needed an even more compact way to get your computing fix, here’s a low-cost (but still awesome) solution: An Android-based PC that’s roughly the same size as a USB stick, currently available from online retailer AliExpress for $74.
Despite the low price, tiny size and simple name, the Model MK802 is not a novelty item. This is a fully-functional mobile PC that runs on Android 4.0 and packs a single-core 1.5GHz Allwinner A10 ARM Cortex A8 processor, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage.
The exterior features an HDMI and mini-HDMI ports, which plugs into an HD display via an HDMI cable for video, as well as a USB and mini USB port for peripherals and expansion. Wi-fi 802.11 b/g also gives you a wireless connection to get you online or for streaming media.
Capable of supporting multiple audio and video formats, the hardware’s good enough for 1080p HD video playback, while HTML5 and Flash support makes it a capable web browser.
