Kano PC: New DIY 2-in-1 convertible is now purchasable for US$299.99
It has been over a year since Kano Computing launched its first DIY computer running Windows 10 S. Now the company has released a second-generation model, and it packs multiple improvements over its predecessor.
According to the company, it included an Intel Celeron N4000 processor, a 6 W Gemini Lake chip that has significantly more power than the 2 W Atom x5-Z8350 found in the first-generation model. There is also 4 GB of DDR3L RAM, 64 GB of eMMC flash storage and an 11.6-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels.
The Kano PC is bulky, but it includes an HDMI port, two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, one USB Type-C and a 3.5 mm jack. The device also charges over USB Type-C and has three physical buttons. There is a microSD card slot for expandable storage, too. Kano Computing claims that the device should last a minimum of 10 hours from a single charge.
