I have been reading about the possibility of Apple releasing a tablet Mac for some time now. It turned out that the tablet will be made by another company called Axiotron. Modbook, the name given to the tablet Mac was released with artists and design-oriented professionals in mind.
The Modbook is a modified MacBook with its screen and keyboard removed and replaced with a tablet screen. The tablet features 512 levels of pressure sensitivity to achieve a level of precision needed in creating and editing digital art and will come pre installed with Mac OS X Leopard. Powered by a 2.0 GHz or a 2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, the device uses Leopard’s built-in Inkwell software for handwriting recognition.
13.3 – inch screen
Built-in iSight Webcam
CD/DVD Combo Drive
It has a triple layer of metal plating, including nickel over copper and topped with chrome, and is available in standard satin or optional mirror finish.
The suggested retail price for the Modbook is $2,290.
