This post is an answer seeking a question essentially, but I kind of feel that it is needed. The modbook is a macbook that has been converted into a tablet. It is quite a bit more expensive than most of the other tablets out there (ignoring the fact that there are no mac os x tablets aside from it) It is also a bit on the heavy side, and it does have it's share of quirks (for instance, mine has had to be repaired for a jumping cursor). Because it has no keyboard it can get frustrating to write anything longer than a paragraph, and the built in graphics card really is not made for doing intensive gaming. But the point of this thread is not to put down the modbook, but to promote it. It is a *fantastic* piece of equipment for anyone who does enough digital work that requires pressure sensitivity to start shopping around for cintiqs or intuos 3's. Given a fast 7200 rpm hard drive and four gigs of ram, both of which are fairly cheap when bought with it, it can handle huge files like nobody's business. It is far more fully functional than most other tablets on the market, and has at least double the pressure sensitivity of other tablets as well. It is (in my opinion) the superior choice to a cintiq because it has the benefit of being portable, as well as being able to work for hours without being plugged in, both of which are weaknesses on the heavily wired cintiqs. I've used it extensively since march with zero wear on the screen, and it has become my sole digital tool, absolutely spoiling me when it comes to digital illustration. I am in love with this tablet, and I made this thread because I so rarely see it get the positive mention that I know it deserves. A great, if quirky, piece of machinery that I feel has quickly slipped far beneath the radar of even those that could benefit from it.
