A really small product category that has been on the rise off late is the PC on a stick. These small HDMI sticks when connected to a TV or a compatible monitor, turn them into a full blown computer. ASUS has also jumped into the bandwagon, and announced the VivoStick which comes forth as a competitor to the Intel Compute Stick (overview).
