MeeGoPad returns with the all new MeeGoPad T02 (Compute Stick rival)


The world went abuzz when Intel announced the Compute Stick, a thumb drive sized personal computer (minus the I/O hardware). Not many knew about the MeeGoPad T01 which had been existing in the market a few months prior to the announcement of the Compute Stick.

We also happened to review the MeeGoPad T01 and found it to be a decent work computer. However, the device was plagued with legal issues, because of the fact that it came with unlicensed Windows. MeeGoPad resurrected the T01 a little later with a higher price and legit Windows 8.1 license, but that was probably a little too late.

The company is back with another iteration of the mini PC, in the MeeGoPad T02. This stick essentially sports a very similar design but comes with Windows 8.1 with Bing, which as you might know, is a free-to-license version of Windows with slight changes.

The underlying internals too are quite the same in an Intel Z3735F SoC, 2GB RAM, and 32GB ROM. US$109 is what this version sells for on AliExpress… not a great price for the specs, but something you perhaps won’t mind paying if similar devices like the Pipo X7S are too large for your usage.

    Can’t be legal as well. Windows 8.1 with Bing is for sub 10-inch devices. Devices without a screen can’t be used with this license. They obviously scammed Microsoft once again. Or am I wrong and you can pay a small fee to allow devices with larger or no screens?

      They need to pay a 10$ fee for each device. Thats why the thing is more expensive. I mean, for this money you could get a 8 inch Win8.1 w/Bing tab with the same specs.

      Don’t know where you got this information from but it is plain and simple wrong…
      There are several very low budget notebooks with screen sizes from 14-17inch which come with licensed Win 8.1 Bing (for example Lenovo B50 series)

        You see? I wasn’t sure about it. And indeed I stumbled upon this price list meanwhile. Thanks anyway.

    Why not just use Android?
