For everyone pining for a larger tablet from Apple, the ModBook Pro is here - a 13.3-inch (1280x800) tablet running Mac OS X. The mysterious makers of the ModBook seem to convert MacBook Pros by hand - every order takes 6-8 weeks, and you can even buy their conversion kits if you feel like doing it yourself. My colleague Tony Kueh jokes that the ModBook Pro, which uses a stylus, not touch, for input, should've been "codenamed: Newton." The specs are powerful - 2.5-2.9 GHz Core i5/i7 processor, up to 16 GB of RAM and up to 480 GB of SSD storage. You can also get Windows 7 preinstalled. The prices are commensurate, starting at $3,499 and going up to $4,819. U.S. customers-only starting in mid-November.
