$300 Kangaroo Notebook Uses Two Windows 10 Modules To Separate Work From Playtime

The tech market is filled with multi-functional devices, and InFocus’ Kangaroo Notebook is no exception. The laptop comes with interchangeable mini-PC modules that are their own self-contained Windows 10 PC. The Kangaroo Notebook is ideal for someone who wants a work/home laptop or a family that needs a children/parent device.

InFocus stated, “The Kangaroo Notebook is the ideal solution for individuals who want a customized yet secure PC experience with the peace of mind that comes from having the ability to decide which information is securely stored on each of the Kangaroo Mini computing modules.”

The Kangaroo Notebook is equipped with a quad-core 1.44 GHz Atom x5-Z8350 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB to 256GB of storage. It boasts an 11.6-inch HD screen running at 1366 x 768, a full keyboard, Synaptics trackpad, USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, SD card reader, a microphone, and a 37 Wh battery that provides roughly 5 hours of battery life. The Kangaroo Notebook also incorporates Bluetooth 4.2 LE and 802.11AC WiFi.

The specs on this device are not that robust, but the $300 price tag certainly is easy to step up to. The design of the laptop is perhaps the most unique aspect. The “notebook” portion of the device acts as a shell or dock that the PC part can plug into. Unfortunately with this device, users can only utilize one module at a time because of the custom connectors.

The Kangaroo Notebook is based on the Kangaroo PC. The $99 PC includes a quad-core 1.44 GHz Intel Atom x5-Z8500 processor with Intel HD Graphics, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of eMMC storage. The $169 Kangaroo Plus was released this past February with similar specs, but 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and no OS.

The Kangaroo Notebook will be available only from Newegg.com in mid-October.
