Running Windows 10 rather than Windows 8, as was the case with the Intel device at launch, the device which is no bigger than a USB storage stick features 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and most importantly two USB ports (1x USB 2.0 and 1x USB 3.0).

It even has space for a headphones jack and can connect to your other devices via Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11n Wi-Fi.

Powered by an Intel Cherry Trail processor, it's not going to be a hugely powerful machine, but for Xbox gaming you don't need that, all you need is a device that can stream to your console in another room.
