Kangaroo modular notebook hits the market
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.
