The very real Axiotron Modbook, which is based on a (white plastic) Macbook and sells for (starting under) US$2,000. You can even supply your own (white or black) Macbook and have a custom conversion made. Mostly used by graphic artists, this tablet computer is a clever hybrid of Apple MacBook and Wacom graphic tablets parts and technology.
The Apple Newton – Personal Assistant was also a very real Apple tablet computer and I actually owned one for a while. Many Newton fans are still hoping for a revival, as the next image tries to demonstrate.
Modern version of Apple Newton (Concept Illustration)
The following are all Concept Illustrations of Apple MacTablet computers
This is a system I would like to have, the design of the Tablet itself is not that great (the edges are too rounded off), but I love the over all concept.
Looks strange, but especially when you realize that this was a 2005 concept illustration, for the MacBook Air.
I could live with this, especially if it allowed for a second monitor in landscape mode.
Very nice and clean design.
I like it but the thin edges also scares me a bit, the biggest problem I see with the current MacBook Air are the lack of ports, it disturbs me when form destroys function.
I could live with this design, clean and utilitarian (lots of room for ports), but I don’t know about the advertising concept (I think whoever did this should just stick to drawing pictures).
This one I don’t get at all.
I like this one a lot, the speaker grill on the bottom edge, is a really nice touch.
Real or Not Real Apple MacTablet – Who Knows?
This last image is a bit more unusual, it is a very recent, photo of a real???? Apple tablet computer (found on whenwillapple.com) being demonstrated at some secret Apple???? event.
