InFocus's Kangaroo mini-PC now has a big brother in the newly-revealed Kangaroo Plus. This new version has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which is double what the first Kangaroo has.
Like the original Kangaroo, the Kangaroo Plus is the size of a modern smartphone. It has an Intel Atom x5-Z8500 processor inside with a clock speed of 1.44 GHz. It works with the optional Kangaroo Dock that adds more USB and HDMI ports and still includes a fingerprint reader. Unlike the first Kangaroo, which ships with Windows 10 pre-installed, the Kangaroo Plus does not come with any OS.
"We've received overwhelmingly positive response from the launch of Kangaroo a little more than three months ago. For our latest model, we have taken direct customer feedback and incorporated it into the Kangaroo Plus. Customers asked for more storage and memory packaged in the same tiny form factor and we are giving it to them. Customers have also asked to be able to customize and configure their own operating system and now that is possible as well," said Lawrence Yen, director of Kangaroo product marketing.
The price for the Kangaroo Plus will be $169.99 and will go on sale later today exclusively at NewEgg.com. The original Kangaroo, with Windows 10, will continue to be sold for $99.99.
