ARM clearly has the PC-on-a-stick niche cornered. What’s more, it has enjoyed a near unmolested run at the top in this category. But this might be set to change. Some Chinese suppliers have begun selling a diminutive Bay Trail-powered PC the size of a USB stick.

The device in question packs a quad-core Intel Atom Z3735F/G chip with a clock speed of 1.3GHz (up to 1.83GHz burst frequency). Capable of running a wide variety of operating systems including Windows 8.1 and Android, this thumb drive-sized PC comes with up to 2GB of RAM, up to 32GB of storage, 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, microSD card reader, two USB 2.0 ports, and one HDMI out port.

A Chinese seller on Aliexpress is selling this mini PC for $110 a pop (shipping extra). However, it’s not clear whether this price is for the the basic version or the best configuration. The former has a Z3735G chip, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of eMMC storage.
