The Modbook Pro (for the uninitiated) is our 13.3-inch professional pen tablet computer that fuses a MacBook® Pro base system with a highly sensitive Wacom® Penabled® digitizer to produce a powerful and portable creative workstation. All-SSD storage, up to 16GB of RAM, Intel® HD Graphics 4000 graphics, 8x SuperDrive® DVD burner, up to 2.9GHz of processing power, 512 pen pressure levels — the product specs pack a punch.
In some respects, the Modbook Pro isn’t easily compared to other products. It is more powerful than any tablet on the market today. Because it contains a MacBook Pro system running OS X® Mountain Lion, the Modbook Pro is the only Mac®-based tablet computer available. Finally, each Modbook Pro is custom-configured and assembled to the owner’s specifications. The end result is an innovative product that’s not available anywhere else.
The team at Modbook HQ has now turned its attention to the Modbook Pro’s all-important production phase, which means the build process for the initial orders of the Modbook Pro is now under way.
We’ll have more updates in the near future!
*More information about the availability of the Modbook Pro outside of the United States will be provided at a future date.
The Modbook Pro is an enclosure conversion kit that transforms an original Apple MacBook Pro notebook-style computer into a tablet-style computer. Apple Inc.’s one-year warranty on the MacBook Pro base system is voided by the conversion and replaced with the one-year Modbook Pro Protection Plan, which covers the entire hardware solution, including the base system.
