Tango PC, the small form factor desktop rig that can fit in the palm of your hand, was already an impressive concept based on the fact that, despite its size, it’ll be powered by desktop hardware while also booting to traditional desktop operating systems like Windows 7 and Windows 8. On top of that though, Tango also announced that Tango PC owners will also be able to configure their miniature desktop computer to ship with alternative operating systems like Chromium OS and Ubuntu Linux pre-installed.
Additionally, Tango informed us that configuring one of their dwarfish PCs with SteamOS is a possibility down the line. However, it can’t confirm this as a certainty since Valve has yet to begin a rollout of a licensing program for SteamOS.
The entry level $349 Tango PC nets you a box with the system, a docking station, an AMD A6-5200 2GHz quad-core processor, a 32GB SSD, 4GB of RAM, and a trial version of Windows 7. Upping to a Tango PC with the 64-bit flavor of Windows 7 brings the price of the unit to $449. As of this writing, there’s 9 days left in the Indiegogo campaign, which has shattered its $100,000 goal by collecting more than triple the targeted amount: $308,609 to be exact.
