While taking a stroll around the AMD tent I found a tiny PC about to launch on the market called Tango: a pocket sized PC that boasts AMD APU Technology. Fitting inside the palm of your hand, this little stylish PC is about the size of a small external hard drive and will come with a docking station. Impressive is the fact it has decent CPU and graphics capability suitable for light gaming in such a small package thanks to its A6 APU. It is also more than capable for office systems as well. With a proprietary cooling setup via the docking station the Tango was only warm to the touch while gaming at the AMD booth. It offers a very powerful and capable PC with the ability to clear clutter. Needless to say, we will be looking to see if this project comes though. Pre-orders can be made though http://tangopc.com/. Pat and I were so impressed we joined the campaign on the spot.
If you’re concerned about the small drive/RAM capacities– the housing opens with two Philips screws and the mSATA and RAM are easily swappable.
