NEWS: “InFocus Kangaroo”: A full Windows 10 PC… $99

imageWAIT.  Before you ignore the Kangaroo as just “another cheap PC”, read the stats on this thing:

  • Fast Atom x5 CPU w/ integrated graphics – includes Windows 10 Home
  • 2GB/32GB storage
  • 3 USB ports including full size USB 3.0
  • HDMI port (Full size)
  • WiFi a/b/g/n/ac
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • TPM 2.0 chip for strong physical hardware encryption security
  • MicroSD slot for storage expansion (supports 256GB cards or more)
  • Fingerprint reader (Windows Hello compatible)
  • 4 hr Lithium Ion battery to enable usage without AC power
  • $99

Besides Windows apps, it runs BlueStacks for Android apps & Kangaroo has worldwide distribution & support through it’s manufacturer, InFocus.

You can see how this would be useful for anyone who has access to an HDMI connected display.  Imagine students carrying this to school or to a library… or families with only a cheap TV using this to connect to public WiFi.  I bought one & I’ve found so many scenarios in which this thing is useful.
