Macbook Pro tablet available for pre order from tomorrow

by TGN

A lot of us cannot imagine life without our iPads. Usages differ from a portable gaming station, writing, browsing, emaling and the list is just endless. The key advantage of a tablet as opposed to a laptop is its mobility due to the absence of a keyboard and its size. The disadvantages however is the OS installed. The IOS6, no matter how great it is, simply cannot compete with OSX Mountain Lion in terms of productivity(In my opinion). Well…..all this is about to change.

While full fledge windows have long been available on both laptops and tablets alike, the same isn’t the case with the OSX.

This is where the ModBook Pro comes in. It is a tablet with OSX installed. Imagine running Mountain Lion on an Ipad. The complete hardware of Macbook pro crammed into a 13.3” tablet. Wait theres more…….. It will be the only tablet with the ability to boot into both windows and OSX giving the user the option to run both Mac and Windows programs.

Display: ModBook Pro sports a 13.3 inch display as the MacBook Pro with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and touch input support with Wacom’s ForceGlass touch panel.

Processor & Storage: The tablet is equipped with a 2.5GHz dual core Intel’s 3rd generation Core i5 processor or 2.9GHz dual core Intel Core i7 processor and Intel HD Graphics 4000 chipset,

Storage: ModBook Pro has 8GB or 16GB RAM, 1TB hard disk storage and a 64GB solid-state drive (configurable up to 480GB),

OS: Users of Modbook Pro can enjoy cross-compatibility between Mac OS X Mountain Lion and Windows 7 platforms.

Connectivity: ModBook Pro comes packed with connectivity features inlcuding Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.

Ports: It has all the necessary ports and slots such as Gigabit Ethernet port, one FireWire 800 port, one USB 3.0 port, one Thunderbolt port, one SDXC card slot and one audio line in/out.

Battery: The tablet has in-built 63.5 watt-hour Li-ion battery and a 60W MagSafe power adapter.

    Sounds great but this will be pricey. My guess is $1000

    Yeah it would be ATLEAST that much. 1TB hard disk and 64Gb-480 Gb is insane amount of memory for a tablet.
