InFocus Kangaroo – What’s so special?
The device is one of the smallest mini PCs ever made, but this is something that doesn’t make it stand out from the rest. The main thing that differentiates it from the other competitors is the price and features. At a price tag of $99 you are getting a full home PC experience and it runs Windows 10 Home instead of Windows 10 starter that we see on other mini PCs.
You also get a standalone dock which hosts 1 HDMI port and 2 USB ports – 1 USB 2.0 and 1 USB 3.0. It also comes loaded with Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11ac WiFi so you can use it for connectivity purposes. You can easily hook up another docking station in case you are in need for extra ports!
There is a fingerprint reader on Kangaroo that will help you secure the device using Windows Hello to add a more solid layer of security on your computer.
How can I use InFocus Kangaroo?
Considering the small size and features of the mini PC, you can use it as your portable desktop but you can also use it as a media box for your TV. It is really easy to hook it up with your TV and it can transform your normal TV into a smart TV in a matter of seconds.
Not only that but you can use your projectors and other monitors to get a workstation setup anywhere. If you have an iPad, you can hook it up with Kangaroo and you can use a full-fledged Windows 10 system on your iPad!
