Tango PC - A Fanless, Pocketable & Upgradeable Computer System


There are mini PCs, there are micro PCs, and then there are things like the Tango PC, which look more like portable HDDs than anything else. Nonetheless, they are full-fledged systems, albeit not overly powerful ones. Then again, when the package measures 4.9 x 3.15 x 0.5 inches, there's hardly any room to complain. Especially when, despite the small package, you can still upgrade the storage and memory and still be able to carry it in a pocket, like you would a wallet. Obviously, the performance won't match that of laptops or desktops. The size demanded sacrifices after all, not the least of which was the CPU. Since it's a fanless computer, the chip needed to make do with a low TDP and, thus, a low performance as well. Nonetheless, the AMD A6-5200 is still quite capable, a quad-core APU clocked at 2GHz with integrated Radeon HD 8400 GPU, 2-8GB RAM, and an mSATA SSD. Keep in mind, though, that the reason the Tango PC is so small is because it has a separate docking system, which provides USB, HDMI, Ethernet, AV and power. You'll need to plug the PC in the dock for anything to work.
