We make the macOS tablets that Apple won't

We make the Mac tablet that Apple won’t — a full-featured, all-in-one pen tablet convertible for power and performance dependent Mac users.


These users, desperate for workstation-class mobility solutions, represent a $1.9b global market opportunity that iPad and other tablets can’t address. Only our latest flagship product, the Modbook Pro X, unlocks the maximum workflow fluidity these users require for optimum productivity.

Led and advised by former Apple managers, Modbook has successfully established a strong brand with a proven record of manufacturing and shipping Mac-based solutions, and has built an active business platform powered by a reliable, flexible and scalable ecommerce system serving customers in 70 countries to date.

The Pro X has stirred intense media and consumer interest. Supported by $403k in pledges brought in by our Kickstarter Top 100 success, the world's only Mac tablet convertible promises to quickly make headway in this high-profit-margin market.

I'm a gadget guy so I love to collect new, interesting things... and what an incredible device this [Modbook Pro] is.
Steve Wozniak Co-Founder Apple Inc.
Steve Wozniak
Modbook’s CEO Haas' Apple background was really what sold me on investing. Who better to create a solution like this than someone who’s been on the inside? It's an added bonus that his solution is not competing with Apple but making them money instead.
Mike Costache Managing Partner @ Krowdmentor

For me, the investment in Modbook Inc. was a no-brainer once I had the chance to get my hands on the Pro X. Between the crystal clear retina display, to the ability to use a pen, it's going to be a game-changer for creatives.
