AWOW NY41S PC Stick Review

Today we’re going to test the AWOW NY41S PC Stick and see how it performs primarily as an emulation machine running the Batocera operating system. While not powerful enough to function as a PC replacement, this form factor and decent emulation performance make it ideal within an arcade cabinet or as a travel-friendly gaming setup.
