There is a very distinct difference in performance when you compare desktops and laptops, but the Tango PC team mean to shorten this gap.
The Tango team come from an incredibly succesful campaign at Indiegogo where they managed to get enough funds to turn the Tango PC dream into a reality. Now, they’ve moved over to Kickstarter where they hope to raise the remaining funds to give it all the specifications they want, but what is a Tango PC? Well, we’re talking of an ultraportable PC unit meant to do high-performance tasks, including gaming.
The Tango is lightweight, but manages to cram desktop components in the size of an iPhone. The specs are 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. It can run either Windows 7 or 8, but it’s not restricted to that, so it could be the perfect candidate to become your own personal Steam Machine should you so desire it.
The miniature PC includes a docking station, and if you were to get more than one, you could spread them between the places you work at (home, office, and so on), and transport the Tango itself without any worries. These docking stations are only $99 a piece, and it’s these that could replace the desktop computers themselves.
