The $300 Kangaroo Notebook adds a modular kick to the traditional laptop

InFocus has debuted the Kangaroo Notebook, an interesting take on the laptop PC that features a bit of modular voodoo. Priced on the budget end of things at $300, the Kangaroo Notebook's novel feature is that it acts more like a laptop dock, allowing you to swap in Mini PC modules for separate uses.

Each PC module features its own storage, which opens up a whole host of different opportunities. As InFocus points out, multiple PC modules could replace traditional user accounts on the same PC, keeping everything truly separate between users. Likewise, one person could use the modules to create separate experiences for personal and work uses.

Kangaroo PC Modules

As for specs, the Kangaroo Notebook dock an 11.6-inch screen, a Synaptics trackpad, a mic and speakers, and a built-in battery. The swappable PC modules come packing 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and an Intel Z8350 Cherrytrail CPU. All of this, of course, runs on Windows 10

InFocus says that the Kangaroo Notebook will go on sale at Newegg in mid-October.

  • They know Windows 10 supports multiple encrypted profiles on a single machine, right?
  • Think of this as continuum for w10 x86, you carry your module and turn every dock into your computer when you plug my module in to it.
  • But that requires the dock to already be in place, when it's easier to just buy and carry your own full device.
  • There is a desktop dock that comes with the module. If that help you soo the use
  • And you can plug a laptop into a monitor Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • This is just another take on what most people are really wish for from the surface phone but with the phone bit missing. So modular unit that is full desktop win 10 but small and easy to take around. Then you plug into things for use cases. It is what the whole continum thing is about. I am happy that compaines are starting to explore the concept more and see where it goes. It is the inovation that is required now MS have layed out the building blocks for people to use
