Modbook Inc. (Los Angeles-based company) has at last declared the specifications of its highly-expected Modbook Pro tablet-PC. This device will appear to the market this year, and it will most likely be one of the most sturdy tablets in the world.
Andreas E. Haas, years ago, established Modbook Inc. with the dream of building a high-quality tablet device that would have the power of a capable PC, the built quality and accuracy of an Apple MacBook and that would be able to run Apple’s OS.
The clients should know that the Modbook notion was offered years before Apple launched the first iPad, and that it was the first vision of an iOS-powered tablet-PC-like device… Modbook Pro tablet will encapsulate the original hardware inside the latest model of Apple’s MacBook Pro 13.3”, but all will be in the tablet form.
The tablet will be marketed with a Wacom digitizer pen that delivers 512 levels of pen pressure sensitivity that the company claims is more than any other tablet computer on the market can offer… The ForceGlass screen will provide an etched, paper-emulating drawing surface on the 13.3” screen, featuring a 1280 by 800 pixel resolution… The hardware design will include an Intel Core i5 processor running at 2500 MHz with up to 16GB or RAM memory, and a 2.5” 1TB HDD or a 960 GB SSD.
Also, there is a SuperDrive DVD burner along with one Gigabit Ethernet port, one FireWire 800 port, one USB 3.0 port, one Thunderbolt connector, an SDXC card slot, and one combo audio connector, just like the original Apple MacBook Pro… Basically the company takes an original Apple MacBook Pro apart and sticks it into a custom-made tablet enclosure.
Utilizing Apple’s BootCamp, Modbook Pro tablet holders will be capable to install Microsoft’s Windows 7 OS… The price of the expecting device still unknown.
