lenovo ideacentre stick 300

The likes of the Google Chromecast and Amazon Fire TV Stick have some serious competition. Not only can these two new streaming sticks beam films and shows to your telly, they can also turn your set into a fully functional PC.

The Lenovo Ideacentre Stick 300 and Archos PC Stick are very similar. They both pack 2GB of RAM (that's about as much power as a decent smartphone) and Intel Atom processors. And they both plug into your TV's HDMI socket and stream TV shows, films, music and apps through the air.

They have 32GB of onboard storage too, which should be enough for plenty of films, TV shows and apps.

Plug them in, and your TV effectively becomes a PC – you can surf the web, email, create documents and more. They fit in your pocket too, basically giving you a computer you can take with you everywhere you go.

The Archos Windows 10 PC Stick costs just £79.99, while Lenovo's model will set you back a bit more, at £129.99. They'll go on sale in August and July respectively.
