The Los Angeles-headquartered manufacturer Modbook Inc. has unveiled its latest tablet, called Modbook Pro. It will reportedly start shipping on November 16th and will carry a hefty $3,499 price-tag. According to the company, the mobile device “transforms an original Apple MacBook Pro notebook-style computer into a tablet-style computer“ and runs on a full version of OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion or Windows 7 (dual boot).
Apparently, the Modbook Pro is aimed at creative people on-the-move and comes with either a 2.5GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5 chip or an Intel Core i7 central processing unit operating at a base frequency of 2.9GHz (up to 3.6GHz via Turbo Boost). In addition, the new slate PC sports a 13.3-inch widescreen LED-backlit WXGA display that offers touch/pen input (Wacom digitizer, 512 pressure levels) and a native resolution of 1280-by-800 pixels.
Measuring 0.93-inch (2.37cm) thick, the portable device houses 8GB of internal 1600MHz DDR3 RAM (up to 16GB) and a 64GB Nishara-class SSD (optional Sanshara solid-state drives with a storage capacity of up to 480GB). The Modbook Pro is powered by an Intel HD 4000 graphics controller and features an 8x DVD Burner.
And last but not least, users are provided with Wireless LAN 802.11 a/b/g and Bluetooth 4.0 radios, one USB 3.0 port, an integrated Thunderbolt interface, FireWire, a Gigabit Ethernet port and an SDXC card reader slot. The specs sheet also indicates the tablet weighs 2.5kg (5.5lbs) with the built-in 63.5 Wh battery and packs two stereo speakers with subwoofer.
