Kangaroo Mobile Desktop Pro Review: a tiny battery-powered Windows 10 PC

Kangaroo Mobile Desktop Pro Review: a tiny battery-powered Windows 10 PC

That makes the Kangaroo Pro far more convenient in certain situations, making transfers between stations as simple as unplugging the computer from one device and plugging it into another. How does it live up to everyday usage, though? Read on to find out!

Lenovo IdeaCentre Y910 Review: A powerful gaming all-in-one

You don't often associate gaming PCs with all-in-ones, but with its new IdeaCentre Y910, Lenovo is doing just that.

There's room for expansion, but also rolls correct right out of the box.
