The devices are the product of a collaboration between Microsoft, Intel and Thundermatch (one of Malaysia’s biggest IT chain stores) to produce the 2-in-1 device and PC stick. While the Spectrum i100 is pretty explanatory (its like a slate in some ways) the PC Stick on the other hand is a teeny thing that will allow you to make any screen (with a keyboard and mouse of course) into a PC just by plugging it in.
Under the hood, the Spectrum i100 is home to an Intel Atom z3735F chip at 1.33GHz, 2GB RAM, alongside 64GB internal memory. It also runs off Intel HD graphics and a large 8900mAh battery. The device also sports a 2 megapixel front and 5 megapixel rear camera combo and a 10.6 inch 1080p IPS screen. The Spectrum i100 doesn’t look like a Surface killer but with the bundled keyboard and Windows 10 on board it could make for a decent work machine if you don’t want to lug around a heavy notebook.
As for the PC Stick, it has an Intel Atom z3735F, quad-core SOC on board mated to 2GB RAM, 32GB storage (expandable via microSD slot) and Intel HD 2D/3D graphics capabilities as well as Windows 10. Its not too different from Intel’s own Compute Stick as its design to power any compatible smart tv or monitor into a functional PC.
The STOM Spectrum i100 retails for RM 1,099 while the PC Stick retails for RM 599, and there plans to bundle together the devices with a plan with YES in the future.
If you want to snag it, head on over to Thundermatch’s online store or visit Lazada, which is already offering both devices at a discount (RM 999 and RM 399 respectively) as part of the launch promo. You can see them for yourself here and here.
