Impressive little device. Not sure how novel it is though... anyone else have an opinion on it?

I can see this being huge if other companies can make both the PC and the dock. Imagine docks all over the office, at home or in the public with everybody walking around with their own PC to be plugged into whereever.
What should be done is creating standards that other companies can make this type of thing with and pay royalties. Helps with pricing too if its a widespread thing and will drive companies to create more powerful versions with more features etc. Otherwise they need to make it fold-able and include a screen. In the end its pointless if your dock/screen is somewhere else and there aren't docks widespread.
There is no excuse for this device not to have micro hdmi and usb ports. Also how is the docking device connected? If it is other than pci-e 4 lane minimum, it is not adequate. It sounds a bit half baked but the principal is great.
lol how is it better than any laptop or even a tablet when you can not use this until you get to a doc and have a monitor etc. A laptop or tablet etc you can use them anytime and place. Tango is about the same thing if you wanted to tote around a 3.5" hard drive all day it is nothing until you attach it to a system or other devices. With that said why not put the hardware in the doc and just tote around a 2.5 drive all freaken day and if going to do that well you can attach it to a tango box steam box laptop desktop note or what ever the phuck- gees people are ignorant. You can buy laptops with multi vid cards and dual channel memory and more powerful cpu's- soon tablets will be as powerful as laptops are now.. The claims this is the most powerful blaa blaa of its size is false but most everything amd is false- this is nothing until attached to its doc and has a monitor and net connection- period. And another thing only a tard would say what if- what if it was docs all over the world and monitors there and net connection so dumb joe can plug in- not to mention anyone can change out such docs or attach what ever to them and then hack your chit or would have to be something like an atm machine maybe- its not practical at all- its plain stupid. As for tech- anything much smaller than an iphone or tablet with its screens is useless. Laptops are what they are- larger and larger screens but can be heavy and if not treated right can over heat and if no access to power the batteries do not last but so long. This Tango in all practicalities is less useful than a iphone or tablet or laptop unless you are a pure dumass and trying to milk it and or are fanboy for amd is the honest fact of the matter. Stupid people like gimmicky chit like said gaming laptops or what w8 or what ever- make money off of them- I have no probs with that- I do not like false claims tho.. Tango is the most powerful nothing- not even the most powerful anything when it is attached to a doc and monitor.
Tango uses 25 watts processor and produces heat that can only be dissipated in the docking station. That is what is special here in terms of technology. A patent pending technology that transmits heat into the docking station where the fan and heatsink reside.
So, this device is a small brick, until you plug it into it's dock. Even if it had a power input the battery would be five times the size and weight of the device and it still wouldn't work because it would overheat. People are investing in this idea to bring it to fruition?!?!?! These people must have been misled or are just plain dumb.
