Remember Intel’s Compute Stick from CES? It’s full-fledged Windows 8, Android or Linux device in a dongle you can attach to your TV, and it’s finally up for pre-order.

The device plugs into your TV’s HDMI port and is powered by a quad-core Baytrail Atom processor and 2GB of RAM. It comes loaded with 32GB of storage, and features both a USB 3.0 and a Micro USB port.

Online stores such as Amazon and Newegg are listing it as due for release on April 24 (May 6 for Amazon). It’s priced at just $149.99.

Other manufacturers have contemplated placing full PCs on TV dongles. ASUS and Google recently introduced a ‘Chromebit‘ computer that turns your screen into a Chrome OS computer for less than $100.
