Modbook Pro Gains Pen, SSD, and RAM Upgrades Ahead of Launch




Back in June, one of the founders of the "Modbook" project to develop an OS X tablet based on the internals of a MacBook, announced that he was bringing back the concept with a new Modbook Pro product scheduled for launch in late 2012.

Pre-orders for the Modbook Pro, which starts at $3499, went live in early October with a launch target of mid-November. With the release timeframe now approaching and Modbook seeing strong customer response, the company has announced upgraded specs for the Modbook Pro, with all pre-order customers receiving a free upgrade to the new base specs. The launch of the Modbook Pro is also now targeted for late this month.
Quote:
Beginning immediately, we're doubling the pen pressure levels on the Modbook Pro from 512 to 1,024. At 1,024 levels, the Modbook Pro -- which sports a state-of-the-art Wacom Penabled pen tablet digitizer -- will now have four times the industry standard of 256 for pen-based tablets!

This dramatic enhancement in pen capability will give Modbook Pro users extraordinarily precise and subtle control of renderings and underscores the Modbook Pro's usefulness as a portable content-creation platform.
In addition to the improved pen capabilities, the base Modbook Pro will also see a RAM boost from 4 GB to 8 GB and a solid-state drive boost from 64 GB to 120 GB using a faster asynchronous drive.

The Modbook Pro starts at $3499 and can be configured with additional processor, RAM, and storage options.
