ModBook Mac tablet turns up in Blighty
Apple's MacBook converted - at a price
Hello Apple are you paying attention? People keep doing these mobs because they sell and quite a few of us want one that comes direct from Cupertino so we can have the benefit without having to forfeit the warranties on our computers. Please get with the program.

You can rotate the screen on almost any Mac with an ATi graphics chip in it from the past 5 or so years - even my Powerbook supports that. You might have to toggle a hidden preference to be able to do it, or install the ATi utility, but it is very easy to do.
Edit @ Mike Fluggenock
... however, I don't know if it possible with the NVIDIA GPU in a MacBook, but I can't imagine why it wouldn't be.
Come you lot be realistic ffs. £2k for a computer AND a tablet - built in. Please show me how you could achieve a similar result (using the same specifications - not a f**king Asus PeeCee or something) for much less.
As for the form factor. You don't like it? Then design your own to use the guts of the MacBook and the Axiotron tablet, set up production and tooling, then the assembly, then...oh, err how many million quid is that already?
It's obviously not going to satisfy the fuss pots who want the most elegant Apple design, whatever the cost, or the twunts who have their 'kill response" button activated when they see any kind of Apple product. It's a one-off niche product that could be very useful to small market. If you can't ever see yourself using one then ignore it. A reasonable comment such as @Consider the following: made above is surely much more helpful than the volumes of bile that seem to wash through from every schoolboy with an internet connection.
Me think-ist that tho are still missing a few keys - the download speed is something near 1800 baud.
