Modular devices always seemed like a pretty good idea, but only a few of them made it to the market so far. Kangaroo is such a device that retails as a modular notebook, coming with two Kangaroo Mini modules and one Kangaroo Notebook Dock in a package. 

The Kangaroo Notebook Dock consists of a keyboard, battery, and the 11.6-inch TFT display with 1,366X768 pixels. While it looks like a notebook, it lacks all the essentials. The Kangaroo Mini modules come with a Cherry Trail processor inside, namely the Intel Atom x5-Z8350 SoC, next to 2 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, and Windows 10 Home 64-bit on top. Each also features a 1 MP webcam, SD card reader, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports.

The Kangaroo modular package can be acquired from Newegg for $299.99 USD. In the future, the dock could be used with more powerful Mini modules, or the existing modules could be connected to more advanced docks.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
