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 (classrooms, libraries, office/meeting spaces, bedroom/living room/den). Ideally suited now as a media center PC connected to your large screen TVs, when you install an HDD or SSD of your choosing (sold separately), you will now have all your video/photo content ready for easy viewing. Connect wirelessly or via Ethernet into your home network for media streaming or Xbox game streaming into any room. The OSLinx app introduced for Kangaroo PC continues to work for the Kangaroo Pro and allows you to use an iPad (connected via a Lightning Cable) to interact fully with the Kangaroo PC desktop. Windows 10 Anywhere on Any Screen
