Quick Overview

The Modbook Pro is the most powerful pen tablet computer available today running all your Windows® 7 applications with ease. Wacom® Penabled® and as powerful and versatile as its desktop counterparts, it is truly your Cintiq®-to-go.

Offering Thunderbolt™, FireWire® 800, USB 3.0 (or USB 2.0 depending on your base system) and Gigabit Ethernet ports, it can connect to virtually any hardware solution imaginable, while its built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity allow you to roam freely.

The Modbook Pro has an innovative design built on a single core cut from a solid block of lightweight aircraft-grade aluminum, providing superior structural strength.

With its all-around onyx black brushed aluminum surfaces, the Modbook Pro's unique and elegant design will draw you in and provide you with a uniquely inspiring canvas.

The Modbook® Pro Mod-Your-Own Service will take care of the professional assembly required to integrate your supplied MacBook® Pro Base System with the Modbook Pro Build Kit. show more »

By submitting this purchase order, you authorize and instruct Modbook Inc. to perform on your behalf all services required to:

• disassemble your MacBook Pro Base System into the components needed for the Modbook Pro, and reassemble those components with your Build Kit into a complete Modbook Pro system, and

• install your Base System’s operating system and the Modbook Pro System Software, and test and verify all functions and features of your completed Modbook Pro system.

You further agree to irrevocably transfer ownership of Base System components not used in your completed Modbook Pro system to Modbook Inc., with the exception of your Base System's hard drive and memory, which will be handled per your directions in the section Electronic Waste Disposal below.

Note: The Mod-Your-Own Service causes permanent modifications to your Base System and is not reversible. Furthermore, the process will permanently erase any and all data on your supplied MacBook Pro. Make sure to make a backup of your data! « show less

The process to get your own MacBook® Pro transformed into a brand new Modbook® Pro is straight forward and you control the amount of time the required 3-way shipping takes. show more »

First, you complete this configurator and place your order.

Second, after your payment has cleared, we will send you the shipping container for your MacBook Pro. It comes complete with the pre-paid return shipping label. Just place your MacBook Pro in it and drop it off at any UPS store.

Third, after your MacBook Pro passed the "good-working-order" inspection, it will move into the production line and return to you as your very own Modbook Pro.

Note: It is important you verify that your computer is in good working order. While cosmetic issues like dings, scratches or loose display hinges do not matter, your computer needs to start up ok and function normally. If your computer fails the "good-working-order" inspection, we will have to return it to you, cancel your order, and refund the purchase price minus the shipping cost and minus a $60 handling fee. « show less

Every Mod-Your-Own Build Kit includes memory and a solid-state drive guaranteed to work flawlessly in a Modbook Pro. Per your selection below, we will either return the memory and hard drive of your supplied MacBook Pro back to you or dispose of them appropriately. show more »

Only Modbook Pro components are specifically selected, designed, tested and calibrated for use in the Modbook Pro. This is important, because critical components, such as the internal pen digitizer, are vulnerable to rogue RF and EM emissions. Non-Modbook Pro components are likely to reduce or even disrupt system performance, potentially rendering the Modbook Pro unusable.

The internal memory and hard drive can be upgraded at any time by every Modbook authorized service center or directly through Modbook Inc for a low $60 service fee, which includes 3-way UPS ground shipping (not including memory and/or hard drive upgrade, US customers only).

Note: Enduser upgrades will void any Protection Plan. « show less

To build your Modbook® Pro, we can only use very specific Apple® MacBook® Pro models. show more » To find out if your computer qualifies, got to the Apple menu, open "About This Mac" and click on the button "More Info". Now click on "System Report..." and under "Hardware Overview" find the line item "Model Identifier". If it reads "MacBookPro8,1" or "MacBookPro9,2" you are good to go!

Note: It is important you make sure your computer is compatible. If you send in an incompatible computer, we will return it to you, cancel your order, and refund the purchase price minus the shipping cost and minus a $90 handling fee. « show less

Each Modbook Pro includes a Modbook Shuttle external mini-drive with either USB 3.0 or optional dual FireWire 800 and USB 3.0 connectivity. The Modbook Shuttle is bus-powered (USB or FireWire) and requires no external power supply. Matching the Modbook Pro with a brushed military-grade surface finish, the Shuttle's beautiful, aircraft-grade aluminum enclosure provides superior heat management and maximum protection. show more »

The Modbook Shuttle's USB 3.0 interface is based on the high-performance ASMedia 1053e chipset and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0, allowing you to shuttle data from pretty much every modern computer system.

The FireWire 800 port is powered by the industry leading Oxford 944 chipset, which is certified by most professional Audio/Video/Camera hardware and software manufacturers for high-end media production.

In addition to the bus-powered USB and FireWire ports, each Modbook Shuttle features a blue led activity indicator light on the front panel and a DC input on the rear panel, allowing for the use of an optional power adapter (not included).

Note: The need to use a DC power adapter could arise, if the Shuttle were to be connected not directly to the host computer, but further down in a chain of devices, which in turn might already be using all the power supplied by the host computer's port. « show less

Built upon an original Apple MacBook Pro base system, every Modbook Pro comes either installed with the Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite operating system, or optionally with a previous version of the operating system: Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks or Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.

All Modbook Pro support Microsoft Windows as a dual-boot install. Using Boot Camp®, a multi-boot utility included with the Base System's OS X, Microsoft Windows can be installed on a second partition on your Modbook Pro's internal solid state drive and selected as Startup Drive. show more »

More detailed information about how to use Boot Camp to configure a dual boot Windows / OS X install can be found here, or you can simply order a trouble-free pre-installation per your configuration requirements using the dynamic selection panels further below. « show less

The Modbook Pro Digitizer Pen features Wacom's patented cordless, battery-free technology, in a sleek marble white body that contrasts nicely with the beautifully elegant black Modbook Pro chassis, and makes it easy to not loose sight of it. show more »

The pen supports 1,024 levels of pressure-sensitivity on the tip and eraser (only when used on a Modbook Pro), and features a dual button rocker side switch that can be customized for two frequently-used shortcuts and modifiers.

When not used, the Digitizer Pen tucks conveniently away in the Modbook Pro's built-in pen garage, securely held by a completely non-contact magnetic catch mechanism. This allows the forward two-third of the pen to be completely smooth and straight, with a soft curving transition toward the pen tip, providing pleasant gripping positions for every hand and technique.

Each Modbook Pro Digitizer Pen also includes a Nib pack, containing the following:
3 × Standard Nib (White)
3 × Stroke (spring-powered) Nib (Grey)
5 × Felt Nib (Black)
1 × Nib removal tool

Note: Every Modbook Pro we ship, already includes one Modbook Pro Digitizer Pen and Nib pack. Choose this option if you like to add a spare. « show less

The Modbook Pro USB 3.0 PortDoubler is a compact solution for doubling the available USB 3.0 ports on the Modbook Pro from one to two. It also allows the connection of those USB devices, such as certain thumb flash drives, that are too big to fit into the standards-conform port of the Modbook Pro. show more »

The PortDoubler supports the full USB 3.0 data bandwidth (up to 5 Gbps) and is backward compatible with USB 2.0, 1.1 and 1.0 devices, enabling the use of nearly any type of USB peripheral and device, regardless of its age.

When used in combination with other low power devices (such as mice, keyboards, flash drives, etc.) two PortDoublers can be chained to further increase the number of ports.

Note: The aggregate power draw of all connected USB devices combined, including the Modbook Pro USB 3.0 PortDoubler, can not exceed 500 mA in order for the connected devices to function properly.

Note: Every Modbook Pro we ship, already includes one Modbook Pro USB 3.0 PortDoubler. Choose this option if you like to add a spare. « show less

The internal graphic hardware of your Modbook Pro allows you to directly connect to up to two external displays and extend your desktop across all screens, including the built-in display, simultaneously. show more »

Most Single Head solutions (Single Head means only one display connected) require only the addition of the appropriate adapter cable to connect to the built-in Thunderbolt port, and there are adapters for most every display type available.

However, Dual Head solutions (Dual Head means two displays connected) that extend the desktop across all connected displays, work only in certain configurations, with the addition of certain hardware, and with certain limitations.

The following dynamic selection panels will allow you to configure a display solution that is complete and sure to work right out of the box. « show less

The Modbook Pro system's built-in QuickClicks™ on-screen keyboard (OS X only) is a great on-the-go solution for quickly naming files or entering your password at the login screen, but there are times when a physical keyboard just can't be beat. show more »

The state-of-the-art light-powered Logitech® keyboards combine the best features available: high quality, light-weight, no wires and no batteries. Available in advanced 2.4 GHz wireless (Mac or PC) or Bluetooth (Mac only), these keyboards recharge with lamp- or sunlight. « show less
