Is anyone using those cheapie Android computers-on-a-stick for general computing?
I've been wanting to buy something like this
(which is not technically on a stick...) for a while now. When they all had Allwinner A10s I waited for better hardware, but now that better hardware's here - the ones I linked have quadcore CPUs and two gigs of RAM - I think I've done enough waiting.
Right now I'm using my main box (quadcore gaming computer) for everything, but it's hardly efficient when I'm not actually gaming. My idea is to use the tiny-puter with my 27" 1080p screen for light-duty things; by this I mean browsing the net, watching youtube videos and so on.
The only doubt I have is that I don't really know how effective these things are in this role. I don't want to have to wait for the CPU to render webpages; I've had to endure enough of that on my ancient Atom netbook.
What's your experience in using Android sticks?
