Hi, I take it you got the links to work then? Some one reported a failure, but before I had time to look into it, the message got deleted by my over enthusiastic cleanup procedure.
I don't know of a list specifically for computestick. I'm not certain what the point would be as they are only intel's proprietary version of a standard windows PC and there are entire and decently accessible websites dedicated to information abut hacking them. The only real pitfall I've come across yet is the lack of an anolog audio out, but since the thing is intended for use in home theatres and most monitors have some audio support nowadays, few people aut to be effected by the lack of a 3.5 mm jack for hooking up speakers.
It's kind'a O/t but I'll be happy to answer any questions you have as I can. My parents have the first generation. For the price difference, I would only consider the 2nd gen at this point. It wasn't an option when my parents were in the market.

Thanks for these links. Is there a list some where for discussing these
(specifically with accessibility in mind)? I might entertain one of these
for my next build (found one that is actually bigger than a stick but still
way smaller than the tower on my computer that I built from scratch).

Subject: Re: [nvda] looking for a good compute stick
Hi, compute stick is intel's model of tiny personal computer.
Here is a link to computestick first generation with windows 10:
Here is a link to the current generation with windows 10:
These are both in your price range. Asside from them getting warm and not
having an anolog audio jack, I'm pretty happy with the first generation. I
hacked it to ubuntoo using images and instructions I found online. There's
an hdmi, one usb, and one SD on the first generation model. I haven't
looked closely at the second generation, but for the pricepoint, I would
definitely give it a glance.
I hope this helps,

hi allI'll shut up now lol.
My birthday is coming up next month and I'm stuck between an iPod
nano, or a compute stick. I'm not sure what they're actually supposed
to be called,but what I'm talking about is a miniature computer that
terminates in an HDMI port which connects to an HDTV or projector,
with enough storage, bluetooth, wi fi, and a micro sd card slot to use
as an every day laptop. I've looked around a little, but they're quite
expensive, about the cheapest I've run across that sounds like it
might be powerful enough to run both windows 10 and sonar linux well
is the acer chromebot, which is around 90 dollars. The thing about
chrome OS devices is that I don't know a thing about them. They're
linux underneath the google, but I don't know if they're as easy to
duel boot as a regular x86 or x64 pc is. Does anyone know of a good
device that would do this for at least a reasonable price? I'd say
around my absolute top would be $150, and for that it had better be
top of the line or mellisa will ... well she won't be happy. I don't
have many requirements, but I'd like it to be able to run windows 10
at least reasonably well, including some casual gaming like killer
instinct, the windows 10 version, and emulated systems like the
gamecube, wii and n64, and that it have a micro sd card slot, wi fi
and bluetooth. Three or four USB ports would be nice, but not
essential at all, I can just get a USB hub if I have to for extra
ports. A package deal where one comes with the device, a hub and maybe
a bluetooth keyboard would be nice, but I don't want to complicate
things, so not at all necessary, just convenient. I have a keyboard
already. It's a logitech, and it uses one of those wireless receivers.
