Lenovo Ideacentre Stick 300

 

The Lenovo Ideacentre Stick 300 is a thumb drive-size PC with clear limitations, but it's a serviceable Windows 10 machine that costs just $100.

Very inexpensive for a Windows 10 PC. Supports Bluetooth.

Single USB port is limiting. Middling speed.

Conclusion As the least expensive of the PC sticks we've tested, the Lenovo Ideacentre Stick 300 is a serviceable Windows 10 system for $100. It's not particularly quick, and like most of these PCs, runs a more limited 32-bit OS. The single USB port is...

Lenovo IdeaCentre Stick 300 Review: A Tiny PC with a Few Small Problems

 

The Lenovo IdeaCentre Stick 300 is an inexpensive and appealingly small option for anyone who needs a PC for use on the go, running digital signage, or adding PC-based web browsing and streaming to a TV. The price is equally attractive, giving you that...

Tiny size ; Atom-based PC is great for streaming video and web browsing ; inexpensive

Only one USB port ; lackluster performance ; short, 90-day warranty

The Lenovo IdeaCentre Stick 300 is one of the smallest stick PCs on the market, with an attractively small price to go with it, but the performance is a bit lackluster, and it would be greatly improved by a second USB port.

Lenovo Ideacentre Stick 300 Review and Ratings

 

This HDMI-stick Win 10 PC delivers much the same value (and guts) for basic computing as Intel's original Compute Stick, but the competition is a little stiffer now than then.

Full PC that fits in your palm ; $99.99 price includes Windows 10 ; Capable of streaming 1080p video ; Built-in Bluetooth, MicroSD card slot

Cooling fan is audible in a quiet room ; Limited performance and onboard storage ; Only one full-size USB port

Need an illustration of how the PC market of late has been a brutal,

Great movie streaming device for my 4:3 tube TV

 

I'm totally blown away at how practical this little stick has become. I'm love the rich color and big picture of my 36\

Consumer review (lenovo.com)

Cool device, horrible Wifi

 

The device was actually faster then I expected in terms of it being a PC. It booted up well and did basic functions well. Then it came to doing updates and installing programs, like Google Chrome, it struggled to do so in a timely manner. I expected as...

Love the size

 

Still trying to get it to show better on 55 inch screens. work great on a 32 inch. The larger screen doesn't show the tool bar well.

Coolest little device!

 

It's finally clear where PCs are headed. I've been carrying it in my pocket along with my thumb drive. I bought a Microsoft Media Keyboard with a nice multi-touch pad for normal use. A nice iOS/Android keyboard would be useful (like the Intel devices...

Consumer review (lenovo.com)

At the price, what's to complain about?

 

Works just fine; installed Office 365 and have over 18GB free. Some apparently want Lenovo to include a keyboard & mouse. Ugh. You are far better off temporarily configuring the device with a USB keyboard, and then pairing with a Bluetooth keyboard &...

Impressive

 

I bought this for my old 65 inch HDTV. The TV has HDMI port but no powered USB port. I connected the stick to my receiver HDMI port and powered from external power source. For first time use the stick has to be connected to wireless keyboard mouse...
