Kangaroo Notebook is the modular approach to laptops
The Kangaroo Notebook, the affordable laptop that is Two PCs in One.
Whether you need a laptop for the family, work or school the Kangaroo Notebook’s modular approach will make it easier for everyone. By having two independent Kangaroo mini PCs, you can now separate your family PC from your personal PC using the same screen.
The Kangaroo Notebook consists of two Kangaroo Mini modules and a Notebook Dock, designed to keep your work PC and family PC separate. Each Mini module is a self-contained Windows 10 PC with CPU, RAM and storage incorporated into a palm-sized package. The Notebook Dock offers a brilliant 11.6″ display, battery, keyboard, track pad and ports. Simply slide the Mini module into the dock and you get a fully-functional laptop. The swappable modules allow you to physically separate your work PC from family PC, eliminating the worry about your kids messing around on your personal computer.
Weighing in at only 2.64lbs/1.2kghe the Kangaroo Notebook is a versatile laptop that you can take anywhere and stay organized. It’s ideal in so many ways from parents wanting to keep their business files or finance files separate from the kids school work. Its immersive 11.6” HD screen and 37Wh battery with a slot on the left side that allows you to plug in your Kangaroo Mini. For those who work from home like myself and my hubby we can keep our business files separate from our family files.
You might wonder why is this modular approach better than just for example having different user accounts on one laptop or desktop. With the Kangaroo Notebook’s modular approach I can keep my hundreds of photos that are work related separate from the family files. As we all know photos take up a LOT of memory and when you’re snapping anywhere from 100-500+ photos a week like I am that can take up a lot of resources on a computer.
Yes I do back them up on external hard drives and even cloud storage but let’s face it I (and many others) don’t always get around to do that the second we upload those photos to our computers. I try to back up weekly but sometimes it only happens a few times a month. so in the mean time those photos take up memory resources on the computer and eventually slow it down. Something my hubby and daughter don’t love when all they want to do is use Excel or MS Word for work or school work.
If you’re a visual person like I am you will appreciate these photos so you can gauge the size of the Kangaroo Notebook. The first one is a photo of it next to an iPad Mini. Keep in mind the iPad Mini is in a case making it look even bigger.
Now here it is next to an iPad Air 2 in a case. It’s still bigger than the iPad Air but remember it’s only 2.64lbs which also makes it perfect for me when I travel which can be quite often since travel is also a part of what I do here on Powered by Mom. In fact the day I received the Kangaroo Notebook I was travelling to Seattle so I had a chance to try it out on the road. I love being able to bring a laptop that is so light I barely notice it in my backpack or camera bag. It will easily fit in my carry-on that goes under the seats on an airplane so I have easy access to it on the plane. I tend to use my laptops on planes to watch movies, especially for long flights it’s a way to make the time go quicker. Trust me when you’ve travelled on plans for almost 17 hours (yes that was one of flight days) and you have a hard time sleeping on a plane you become an expert on packing to entertain yourself. Of course I can always do work as well.
I can also attach a keyboard to it and external mouse. Some of you might think that’s crazy but if I have a lot of work to do on the road due to my wrist issues I need to use an ergonomic keyboard and a mouse, otherwise I end up with a lot of pain if it’s a long day on the computer.
Powered by Mom’s Thoughts:
It’s only been a short time but so far I love it. The portability, lightweight, USB ports and of course being able to separate my large photos files and other Powered by Mom work from family files with ease. There’s no worrying that when the family wants to use the Kangaroo Notebook that my large files will slow down the processor or that anyone will accidentally delete any of my files. Problem solved with the Kangaroo Notebook modules. Just switch out the Kangaroo Mini and you’re good to go. The display is clear and crisp and for the size and price point the speakers are good enough for me if I want to listen to music while working on the Kangaroo Notebook.
I love the flexibility and privacy of two full Windows 10 PCs with one docking station and monitor. Two PCs yet a small footprint.
I highly recommend the Kangaroo Notebook! someone special the Kangaroo Notebook! With 2 separate Windows10 PCs & a laptop dock, it offers value & flexibility! You can buy the Kangaroo Notebook on NewEgg.com!
