Based on a quad core Intel Atom processor, 2 GB or memory and 32 GB of eMMC solid state storage. It also supports Bluetooth for keyboard and mouse, a micro SD card for expansion and Wireless that supports IEEE 802.11 b\g\n standards.
I can imagine a situation where these devices are given to every pupil as their personal devices. Pupils come to school and simply plug their personal unit of computing into a HDMI monitor and start working. When finished, save the work either in the cloud or on the SD card, unplug and move on to the next lesson. This could easily work in a school with a wireless network.
In the simplest terms, this is a computer on a stick – you simply plug it into a TV and it becomes a fully fledged wireless enabled Windows 8.1 computer.
So the dream scenario - of secure, safe, equal, inexpensive access to the school network and all its resources for every student and member of staff - could be reality very soon and here’s how: plug the Compute Stick in, access Magellan, and open up the school network system with one, secure, single sign on from anywhere.
