Modbook Pro Release Date

Maybe Apple’s (AAPL) $500 iPad doesn’t cut it, or Samsung’s (005930) Galaxy Note 10.1 is just not precise enough. It’s understandable that those tablets don’t have the horsepower of a MacBook Pro to fit the creative professional’s demanding needs. The Modbook Pro returns as touchscreen MacBook display gutted of its keyboard. Its touchscreen has 512 stylus sensitive pressure points and the base model has a 2.5GHz Intel Core i5, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of Sanshara solid-state drive for $3,499. The Modbook Pro also retains the 13.3-inch display (1280 x 800 resolution) and ports, including USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt found on the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro. Upgrades can be custom ordered with a faster 2.9GHz Intel Core i7 processor, up to 16GB of RAM, and 480GB of solid-state drive space.  More →
