A good PC stick is an instant computer, just add a screen! That's the idea at, least, but it can be hard to know which one to buy. Relax, we've got you covered. We came up with a list of the best PC sticks available — and even included some budget options — so you can take your computer with you wherever you go.

Speedy processor

Intel Compute Stick CS325

This version of Intel's Compute Stick runs on the 64-bit version of Windows 10 and also offers onboard storage of 64GB, making it easier to store more of your important files and documents on the go. The CS325 has three 3.0 USB ports, one on the stick itself, and two on the power adapter, making it easy to hook in any devices or peripherals you deem necessary.

Great budget option

Intel Compute Stick 2nd Gen

Running a 32-bit version of Windows 10, the Compute Stick allows you to have a full desktop PC anywhere you have a screen with an HDMI port. It runs Intel's Atom x5-Z8300 processor and has 2GB of RAM, making it perfectly capable of streaming HD video from your favorite services. The 32GB solid-state drive (SSD) offers limited storage space; however, the microSD card slot supports cards up to 128GB if you find yourself starved for space.

Expandable storage

Lenovo Ideacentre Stick 300

Including the Intel Atom Z3735 processor, the Lenovo's stick also comes with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, meaning it will stream all your favorite shows and movies, and let you browse the web just fine. Much like Intel's PC stick, the microSD card slot will allow you to expand your storage capacity, making it easy to store all the necessary files and apps you want.

Lots of ports

ASUS VivoStick TS10-B017D

With a Windows 10 on board, you'll have a full operating system to work with when you plug this little stick into a monitor or TV. Also inside you'll find a quad-core Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor, which means the Asus VivoStick is more than capable of day-to-day activities like streaming Netflix, checking your email, and browsing the web. When it comes to connecting to other devices, the ASUS VivoStick features one USB 2.0 port and one USB 3.0 port allowing you to plug in various devices that use USB-A connections. ASUS even managed to squeeze in a headphone jack.

Dual-band Wi-Fi compatible

Azulle Access Plus

Pre-loaded with a full 64-bit version of Windows 10, the Azulle Access Plus comes with 32GB of onboard storage and a microSD card slot that can use up to a 128GB card. Its 64-bit Intel Quad Core processor is enough to stream movies and get your emailing done, and it's dual-band Wi-Fi compatible, so you can get a solid connection.

A pint-sized PC

For my money, I like the Intel Compute Stick 2nd Gen. Since I only need to use a PC stick for some emailing, Netflix watching, and maybe a PowerPoint or two, I don't need a super fast processor.

Of course, any of the options listed above is a perfect way to have a portable PC on you whenever you go! Having a small, pocket-sized PC that runs Windows 10 is a fantastic tool for anyone who finds themselves traveling a lot for work or pleasure!
