    Giz Wiz Show 1606 for January 20th, 2017, Our 90th Independent Production. 

    Thanks to our wonderful Patreon supporters The Giz Wiz Show not only continues, but is heading toward the end of its 2nd year of independent production. If you'd like to support OMGchad & DickDe in our independent venture (we pay for everything ourselves, including travel) just click the Patreon link at the top of our show web page: http://www.gizwiz.tv/ You can also contribute just once via the PayPal link that's there too. And thank you for doing that! Our show wouldn't exist without our viewer's support. 

    And now, on to the show! MORE CES 2017

     

    InFocus keeps coming out with new versions of its Kangaroo brand mini-Windows 10 computers. At CES 2017 I saw the newest addition, the Kangaroo Notebook. It's a way to keep your personal and family computer activities separate. Or parents and kids computer use separate. And I'm talking about really separate, like each having their very own 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. 

    Available at Newegg. Suggested retail is $299.99, but it is on sale for $269.99 till Monday, January 23rd, according to the Newegg website when I checked on 1/18/16
