Apple Engadget reports: "First unveiled nearly a year ago at Macworld 2007, the MacBook-based, Wacom-modified Modbook has definitely seen its share of delays, although in the days and months since, the 13.3-inch slate has gained the distinction of being one of the few pieces of non-Cupertino, Apple-approved hardware. The world's first OS X tablet can be yours immediately starting at USD 2290."

This looks almost like apple is licencing their os to other manufacturers!!! Could this be a tentative step into clones?

Apple could licence to producers making machines to fill niches they dont want to touch at this time - mac Midi tower? - if the market takes off they can jump in either by buying the company involved and rebranding or simply cutting the licence are releasing their own version


Don't get your hopes up too much. This guy is buying macbooks and then modifying them, so he is using genuine apple hardware not a clone.
