Exactly my thoughts. OldEgg's american site has it up for pre order. No signs of Canadian life so far.

Not yet.

But I do have good news though! I can tell you that it is in my internal database, so we will be carrying them! The items were added to the database on April 9, so it will probably take a few weeks before they start showing up.

They are currently set to NOT show on our website so you will not see it there at this time. It's not quite ready yet.

Just keep an eye on our website, when stock arrives, Head Office should set it to show on the website.

As of this time, the item codes are RTIT000091 is the 32GB Linux, RTIT000082 is the 32GB Windows 8.1. Only CC staff can pull this up internally at this time. If there are no changes, when they set it to show on the website, those 2 item codes above should allow you to find these 2 items on our public website.

I won't discuss much more than this as this is not completely finalized, I may not be looking at final pricing, etc. Just stay tuned! If nothing shows up on the website in a few weeks, PM me or bump this thread and I'll follow up.
I didn't hear about these until I saw this thread. I want one too, they look so awesome for specs! Would be perfect for a media player for my TV instead of my huge, noisy fans, HP tower I recycled for that current purpose Smile

Great idea! According to Steam, the only requirement on the client side to really optimize performance is H264 hardware accelerated decoding. Does the Atom support that?

RE: So the Intel Compute Sticks...
It has intel HD graphics right? Those all are supposed to support H264.

If I went into the store now could I preorder?

Yes it has Intel HD graphics.

I don't know if you can pre-order in the current status that it's in, I would have to ask head office.

RE: So the Intel Compute Sticks...
FYI, I'm still keeping an eye on this. They should be coming out soon, head office is adding more information to the database like the product specs which were added just a few days ago.

Thanks for your patience!
