Kano PC 2-in-1 DIY Hybrid Laptop is Powered by an Intel Celeron N4000 Gemini Lake SoC

Kano PC DIY computer kit was launched last year with a low-end Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor and designed to help kids learn about computers.

The company has now launched the second-generation Kano PC with a faster Intel Celeron N4000 dual-core processor, and longer battery life making the 2-in-1 DIY Hybrid laptop/tablet capable of rivaling with entry-level laptops and Chromebooks.

The laptop/tablet is designed for kids, so while it’s technically a DIY laptop like Olimex TERES-I, the assembly is much easier, as users simply need to insert the battery and the speaker before covering the back of the display with an acrylic cover.

Kano PC is available now for $299 from Kano store, Microsoft, and Best Buy.
