    It would be a server you can carry with you in your pockets while traveling. And just like the bigger version of web servers, the portable servers can be used to host a website or multiple websites.

    Have you considered any of the many Raspberry Pi models?

    Unfortunately I don't have the time and the money to learn how to create a server. I can install and run server OS's and software but creating the hardware in order to make everything work is not something I have time and money for.

    these are great, some support micro sd, so you can have lots of space.

    but i mean, it's not going to be powerful like you may want...
    but very portable, you can use a powerbank etc.
    it runs unix/open-wrt so you can do what you want.
    it depends how intensive the tasks you need it to do are.

    I plan on hosting a website with some pictures, perhaps some audio, and contact information.

    The compute stick is not worthy of being any kind of server with those specs. But the nuc might just do it for me.

    To be honest, for what you want you could do easily with a Raspberry Pi for less than $100 and an afternoons work. Atleast that is the route I would take, but then I have never been one to just throw money at a problem.

    I would love to have a tiny and quite x86-64 server. My pi is great and all, but it can not run Windows programs at all. :-/

    You may wanna check out something like the LattePanda - it has its ... quirks but can run Windows 10 quite comfortably, but should warn you support from the devs is lacking but for me that's half the fun !

    I would prefer to run Debian and Wine though. :-P

    Edit:
    Can not really afford that. >.>
