Modbook launches Kickstarter campaign for Modbook Pro X
As far back as 2007 the compnay has been tearing apart Apple laptops and converting them into tablets by adding pen input capabilities.
An innovative computer modification product, the Modbook Pro X incorporates the original hardware of a Retina-display Apple MacBook Pro 15.4-inch base system running the OS X 10.10 Yosemite operating system. The expansive drawing and writing surface of the Modbook Pro X has a scratch-resistant ForceGlass screen with paper-emulating texture that covers a crisp, clear 15.4-inch Retina display with a resolution of 2,880 by 1,800 pixels. Users get highly sensitive pen input with 2,048 pen pressure levels and pen tilt and rotate functionality for producing pro-quality creative deliverables.

looking at the price though I must say the Modbook Pro X is targeted at a very small population. For most people it will simply be too expensive, however for those who are interested in an OS X-based iPad, it’s a neat idea for future inspiration.
