Kangaroo: $99 Pocket-Size Windows 10 PC

Emil Protoalinski, writing for VentureBeat:

The pitch is simple: Kangaroo offers the power of a cheap full-sized computer with the convenience and mobility of a cell phone. The black satin aluminum device is powered by an Intel Cherrytrail (Z8500) SOC, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage (only about 18GB is free when you first start it, but storage is expandable via a microSD card), and an on-board battery (up to four hours of “casual use”). The standalone Kangaroo Dock, which you can swap out for other future docks, includes an HDMI port and two USB ports.

Cheap isn’t that interesting. Small isn’t that interesting. But really cheap and really small at the same time — that seems interesting to me.
