“Consumers own many different devices including tablets, laptops and desktop PCs. Each device is used in different locations for different purposes. Kangaroo is the first product to allow you to use the same PC for all applications, in any environment, Unlike stick PCs and other pocket PCs, Kangaroo works with all of your existing devices and can be docked at home or tossed in your bag to use anywhere, powering and providing Windows 10 access on the go”  said InFocus’ marketing boss Lawrence Yen.

One advice for those who have not used these small shaped windows devices is that, don’t expect this device to manage high end tasks such as graphics intensive games. It should be able to perform web browsing, play casual games, and watch full-HD video files without any delay, however.
