The original Kangaroo Mobile Desktop PC came with an Intel Atom x5-Z8500 processor, 2GB RAM, and 32GB flash, as well as a small dock to add HDMI, two USB ports, and DC input. The company also launched an upgraded “Plus” version with 4GB RAM and 64GB flash a few months ago, but now they have introduced the Pro version with the same CPU “module”, but a larger dock, making the device over twice as thick by adding a 2.5″ SATA bay, Ethernet, VGA, etc…

    This needs to be tested. For example, Voyo V3 (x7-Z8700) has a PCIe to SATA bridge with very good performance.
    The first Kangaroo had several reviews in the US, so I’m sure this one will be tested too.
