Really portable PC

Interesting toy:

But they neglect to mention that you'll also need a keyboard. And probably an HDMI cable. And maybe a mouse or other pointing device.

For navigation you could get by with just a touchscreen display. But in that case why not just buy one of the many nice Windows tablets or 2-in-1s?

Seems like a solution in search of a problem?

For Navigation, why would anyone buy a Windows computer at all today? There is really nothing happening there anymore and Android tablets are cheap with many inexpensive apps available.

I guess because some people have no interest in an Android tablet for anything else so a Windows tablet would be a natural choice for them if they want some mobility.

The price is perfect, but I would need at least 400 to 500 GB of space. Nice little device. Perhaps a version with more space will get released eventually.

For what is offered, the price is high. I have a Win 10 tablet with the same power, memory, storage plus an 8" touch screen which cost less. Also a similar powered Win 10 HP 2 in 1 laptop with a 10" touch screen plus pen support for $50 more. Storage is an issue with each of them of course.

Win10 with 2GB/32GB? Sure.

There have been other similar products for a while now. And many different choices of even smaller "stick PCs" that plug into an HDMI port. Not just no-name brands, either. Intel makes one.


This one is arguably more practical than the "Sirius B":

The fact that they aren't widely sold probably tells the story.
On their home page, here's what's new: The Kangaroo Notebook

Reminds me of my HP Slate 400 which had Windows 7, 2GB RAM and an Atom CPU, although it has a 64GB SSD. Now I'm sure the newer generations of atom are better, but I would not want to buy another one. The Slate is really slow - basically a netbook with a terrible touchscreen.
