After raising over $300,000 during a hugely successful crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo earlier this year, the team behind the Tango PC has taken to Kickstarter to raise additional funds to support retailing their PC you can fit in your pocket. Not only is the Tango PC ultraportable, it is a formidable office as well as entertainment machine with mid-core gaming performance on traditional Windows.
The Tango Kickstarter Campaign got fully funded just a day ago, and with only a day or so more to go, the consumers still can back their campaign in return of not just the Tango PC, but also a free additional PC whenever their worldwide sales reaches a 100k units milestone. What really stands out is that the Tango PC is slim and weighs below 7 ounces, fitting what amounts to a full range of desktop components in a package about the size of an iPhone 5s. The specifications include an AMD A6-5200 2 GHz quad-core processor, DDR3 RAM (from 2-8GB), SSD hard drive (from 32GB-1TB or higher), 3x USB 2.0 ports, 1x USB 3.0 port, 1x HDMI port, headphone jack and internal Wi-Fi.
As for the operating system, Windows 7/8 is certified to run on Tango, but any OS compatible with a laptop PC should work, such as Linux, Unix and Chromium OS. In other words, Tango could potentially be your next cell phone sized Steam Machine.
The slim and tiny docking stations priced just at $99 each ($89 on KickStarter) can replace expensive desktops, IPTV boxes and older gaming consoles, and thus can save money on hardware and software because users can just carry one PC for everything everywhere.
