Kangaroo Pro PC

Kangaroo PC Review FI

The World’s smallest, personal, powerful portable PC. Kangaroo Mobile Desktop Pro builds on the benefits of the Kangaroo PC by building on the modularity and expandability of its design architecture. By introducing the Dock Pro which is a combination HDD bay (2.5″ sized laptop drives up to 9.5mm) and additional ports (VGA, HDMI, audio, Ethernet, 2 x USB 2.0, and 1 x USB 3.0), the Kangaroo Pro now has all the standard PC elements. This Kangaroo Pro works with the already selling Kangaroo Dock so you can continue to build on the option to locate the Dock and Dock Pro in multiple locations.

Check out our full review of the Kangaroo PC, the predecessor of the Kangaroo Pro, and then go pick up a Kangaroo Pro for yourself!
