Meegopad M1 converts your TV in to an Android TV for less than $100


meegopad m1

We have seen plenty of USB Android sticks that convert your standard TV in to a smart TV, but I believe this is the first to run an Intel Atom processor so far.

Usually when we see these sticks they are powered by a Rockchips or Allwinner processor from China, but the Meegopad M1 is powered by an Intel Atom CPU. The chips inside the slim black box is an Atom 3735f quad-core running at 1.33Ghz, which should give enough poke for 1080 HD streaming and gaming.

Memory in the stick is just 1GB RAM. Storage is handled by 16GB of internal memory and a micro SD slot which can accept 64GB cards.

Connections are handled by Bluetooth 4.0, for a keyboard or mouse, and WIFI 802.11 b/g/n. Most popular video codecs are supported plus there is a micro USB allowing you to connect it to a external memory source or wired controller.

The Meegopad is on sale now for $89.72, and is the perfect size to fit in your stocking.

    Where’s the 2GB/32GB version? Windows 8 on 1GB RAM and 16GB Storage does not work well. You’ll barely have enough room to install Office and a few small apps, let alone updates..

      I don’t see any mention of Windows 8 in the whole review. It says that it will convert your TV to an Android TV not a windows one.

      U might wanna read again Ben. But yes a 2GB/16GB combo will be lovely for this device.

        Android TV is a version of Android…

        I guess this stick runs Android for phones…

        Any formal review would be much appreciated. Anyway it looks overpriced… 99$ tablets running that chip are in abundance in the market.

          Most of these sticks run a version of Android modified to work on a bigger screen and with a keyboard and mouse. It’s almost always based on Android 4.2 or 4.3.

        You might want to research it a bit more as well. This is basically the same model as the Meegopad T01 with the only difference being the default ROM loaded up – either Android or Windows 8.1 Bing.

        Besides even in relation to Android – most of the Android TV Sticks have moved up to 2GB as standard (eg. MK809/Minix etc). Even 1GB is not really enough these days for Android these days once you’ve loaded up enough software on it.

    $90? You can usually find these for under $40 on most websites, and here in Thailand just about every market sells them for less than $20. Granted they don’t have Intel Atom chips inside them but the Rockchips most of them have are powerful enough.
