Modbook Pro, Probably the Best Tablet in the World

Posted on: June 29, 2012


Los Angeles-based company, Modbook Inc., has finally announced the specifications of its highly-anticipated Modbook Pro tablet-PC. The device will come to the market this year, and it will probably be one of the most powerful tablets in the world.

Years ago, Andreas E. Haas founded 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 reliability of an Apple MacBook and that would be able to run Apple’s operating system.

Back in 2008, Modbook Inc. went public and just ten days later Lehman Brothers went bankrupt, thus proving that the American government allowed financial companies to run rampant with no regard to the U.S. citizens’ well-being.

The financial crisis hit the company very hard, and after years of work and restructuring, Modbook Inc. is now able to present the first information on the long-awaited Modbook Pro tablet computing device.

Our users should know that the Modbook concept was presented years before Apple launched the first iPad, and that it was the first vision of an iOS-powered tablet-PC-like device.

Today’s 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.

Modbook’s impressive tablet will ship 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.

We’re already used with FullHD screens on 10” tablets, but we’re going to let this one slide, as Modbook’s uniqueness resides in many different innovations and not an increased screen resolution.

The initial hardware configuration will include an Intel Core i5 processor running at 2500 MHz with up to 16 GB of RAM memory, and a 2.5” 1TB HDD or a 960 GB SSD.

There is also 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.

The secret of the Modbook Pro tablet is the fact that the company practically takes an original Apple MacBook Pro apart and sticks it into a custom-made tablet enclosure.

Apple’s original warranty is thus now void, but Modbook Inc. will issue a new warranty for the Modbook Pro tablet.

Using Apple’s BootCamp, Modbook Pro tablet owners will be able to install Microsoft’s Windows 7 operating system.

The Modbook Pro tablet is a device targeting drawing and CAD professionals, or simply tablet and Apple enthusiasts that are willing to pay a considerable premium price over the already high price of the MacBook Pro.

Pricing is yet to be announced, but we’re curious how well Modbook’s interesting idea will sell.
