Kangaroo Notebook is a $300 modular laptop to keep work and play separate

InFocus has added a new device to its Kangaroo line of PCs. The company has introduced Kangaroo Notebook that has a modular design. The laptop has two parts – a laptop dock and a removable mini PC module running Windows 10.

When the mini PC module is attached to the Kangaroo Notebook, it is basically an entry-level Windows 10 notebook with 11.6-inch display, Intel Cherry Trail processor, 2GB RAM and 32GB inbuilt storage.

However, you will be able to swap the Mini PC module and replace it with a different one, allowing you to create separate experiences for work and personal uses. Moreover, multiple users can use the Kangaroo NoteBook, with separate mini PC module, eliminating the need for using different user accounts on the same PC.

The laptop dock has 1366 x 768 pixel display, a full sized keyboard, a Synaptics Clickpad, 1MP webcam, a mic, speaker, a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, SD card reader and 3.5mm audio jack. It is backed by 37 Whr battery which is rated to deliver five hours of run time.

The mini PC module packs the core components including the storage, RAM, OS and Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor. It also features a SD card reader, and 802.11ac/Bluetooth 4.2 for wireless connectivity. The module works only when connected to the laptop dock, and cannot be used as standalone PCs since it does not have HDMI or DisplayPort to connect to TV or monitor.

The Kangaroo Notebook (laptop dock + Two mini PC modules) will be available in the U.S exclusively via for $299.99.
