I agree with Chelle, a stick with 2GB or 4GB would be much better, which you can probably get for maybe $80 or so. You might be interested to know that one can install a complete Linux OS on a usb drive and run it on a laptop or pc with complete persistence. In other words, you can take a cheap old laptop and run a Linux system on it for free, and one of these, the "Raspian Pixel OS", was made for this very purpose, although it should be noted that you can't plug it into a monitor or tv and use like the mini pc sticks.

This is a a brave new world for me.
Private message me when your Chromebit arrives. There are some tips and tricks that I'd rather not put in a public post. There are ways to get around geolocked legal streaming sites that you might enjoy having access to (without using a VPN). Chromebooks and Chromebits are great one-stop solutions to streaming pretty much everything that's out there.
If I post them publicly I'm afraid that the holes might get plugged up so I'd rather not take that chance.
This Speedtalk Mobile one year deal of $160 ($13.33 monthly) for a year for unlimited T&T+ 2GB data on T-Mobile networks looks good, which is a tad ( $20 year ) cheaper than Mint Sim, unless one can get the ebates deal on Mint.
The annual Speedtalk Mobile is an amazing deal...way cheaper than Redpocket monthly plans. Unlimited Talk & text are big plus. Pain to run out of minutes on these annual plans and have to buy additional. If buy on eBay, use Ebates and get an additional 2% cash back.
This is the 1GB RAM model that was not recommended earlier in this thread. It's a small pc about the size of a Fire tv stick dongle that can be connected to a tv or monitor, and can be controlled using a mouse and keyboard just like a big pc. Most of these intel sticks come with Windows 10 installed, while a few have a Linux OS installed.
By the way, your link is a bit shaky, so here's another link.
