The Giz Wiz found a cool mini computer called the Kangaroo Notebook. It's a way to keep your personal and family computer activities separate. It's just a notebook screen and a keyboard, then you insert a separate, removable Kanagroo Mini stick. Yes, the Kangaroo’s Notebook comes as a package with two modular PC Minis that can be swapped in and out of the laptop dock. Each mini is a self-contained PC running Windows 10.

Inside, the modules are 2GB of RAM, 32GB of eMMC flash storage, and a quad-core 1.44GHz Intel Atom “Cherry Trail” x5-Z8350. There's also an SD card slot on each mini which accepts cards up to 512GB. The dock offers an HD 11.6-inch display (max resolution of 1366 x 768), full keyboard, trackpad, battery, webcam, microphone, speakers, and two USB ports, one 2.0 and one 3.0. While 2GB of RAM is not much, it works fine as long as you understand this notebook is for basic computing chores, web searching, viewing videos, but not video editing or intense video gaming.

Suggested retail is $299.99, but this weekend, from 1/14/17 to Monday 1/16/17, it's on sale for $269.99.
