This will always be a second computer, rather than somebody's first. It assumes you have a monitor with an HDMI, plus a keyboard and mouse. If you don't and are looking to buy these as well, then buy a mini desktop.
Looking at the negatives first, HDMI is not powered, so there can be a bit of a cable mess as /another/ socket is needed for power. There is also no audio mic' so, Bluetooth will be used somewhere, either for the audio channels or wireless keyboard / mouse. Clearly there is no ethernet.
On the plus sides, the Compute Stick is fast enough, Windows works ok [opinions of W10 aside....], there two USBs, almost silent running, an HDMI Extention cable included in the box and a Kensington lock. WIndows is also "region free" meaning at initial boot up, your language, region, keyboard choices etc are all set up, regardless of your language you can set up as you wish.
If you're looking for a second device, but want / need the screen resolution of your main machine, this makes some sense and certainly more sense than buying the low end landfill 11 inch laptops stuffed with eMMC memory.
