ASUS VivoStick was presented at IFA 2015 in Berlin, practically the last year, from April and is distributed in the Asian market. We had given up hope of seeing her in Italian shops, when a surprise ASUS has announced the availability: ASUS VivoStick (TS10) is on sale in our market to 179 Euros (VAT included). And in fact you can already find it in stock from Amazon (link to the offer!), But additional stores will be added soon with the possibility to save a few euro.
a price of around $ 130 / € considering the change of the Japanese yen and the first information released at the launch, but only by way of comparison the Compute Stick with Atom (Cherry Trail) is more expensive than expected, because we imagined and Windows 10 sells for $ 159. After all, then, the price is not “out-fit.”
