Double the Pen Pressure, SSD and RAM!

We’ve got great news about the Modbook Pro.

Beginning immediately, we’re doubling the pen pressure levels on the Modbook Pro from 512 to 1,024. At 1,024 levels, the Modbook Pro — which sports a state-of-the-art Wacom® Penabled® pen tablet digitizer — will now have four times the industry standard of 256 for pen-based tablets!

This dramatic enhancement in pen capability will give Modbook Pro users extraordinarily precise and subtle control of renderings and underscores the Modbook Pro’s usefulness as a portable content-creation platform.

The Modbook Pro is getting two other upgrades as well. Beginning immediately, the base configuration for the Modbook Pro’s solid-state drive (SSD) is being increased from 64GB to 120GB. Also, the 120GB drive will be a Sanshara™-class synchronous SSD offering significantly faster read, write, startup and application loading speeds compared to the previous asynchronous 64GB drive.

In addition, the Modbook Pro will now come standard with 8GB of random-access memory (RAM), twice the previous specification of 4GB.

And best of all: these changes come at no additional cost to customers. The Modbook Pro will ship with 1,024 pen pressure levels, a 120GB SSD and 8GB of RAM at its previous MSRP of $3,499.

A portable and powerful creative workstation, the 13.3-inch Modbook Pro seamlessly transforms a MacBook® Pro notebook-style computer into a pen tablet computer. You can custom-configure the Modbook Pro with up to a 2.9GHz processor, up to a 480GB SSD and up to 16GB of RAM. A grid is now available at that compares the Modbook Pro’s powerful specs to other large-screen pen tablet computers.

The Modbook Pro is available to order now for U.S. customers* for shipment in late November at our online creative technologies store.


*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.
