Company Overview

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 $1.8b 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.
