    After I received a windows convertible laptop with wacom pen. I kept longing for a pen-based input on Mac, like most things in my life by the time I can afford something they don't make it anymore. so I was thinking convertible Toshiba Toughbook hackintosh but that's even more out of my price range. So I just settle for VNC access and now that I have a new iPad with pencil sidecar is pretty cool. the wacom pen tech was pretty cool for the time and still is as it mimics physical drawing with a slightly less abrasive surface.

    Given the guts of the Apple Silicon DTK, I’m sure Apple already had an iPad Pro running macOS adequately (with all the UI & UX tweaks lifted from the ModBook via an Apple Pencil), given that Apple seems to loathe the idea of a touchscreen laptop an obvious intermediate device between the iPad & MacBook would be some kind of “MacPad” - kinda like an “Apple Surface”, but with better mobile app support than the Microsoft offering - basically an iPad Pro with an M1 in the place of the current A12Z (& probably a second USB-C port).

    that's something anyone could self integrate in any laptop (with more or less effort depending on the model); a REAL laptop is already integrated all in one, with componentes greatly customized to occupy the least physical space possible; thus u dont have a regular brick battery in a table/cell phone, no regular mechanical/SATA disks, etc

  • Brad DL

    A thing to explore is what other drawing tablets were available back in the day as a comparison. This would also have the fully functionality of a mac on top of being an artist tablet. I can see where they were going with this. I mean something like a WACOM tablet mid range tablet was 2000 dollars and you had to adjust to fact the glass was like a fraction of a millimeter off from the touch surface and you would still need to sync it to a computer. I mean this seems like it would have been neat to be able to take it with you to do some work on the go for a 2012 device.

    The display is darker because they grafted that touch-panel onto the MacBook's display. Or, they replaced the display with a poor quality display that is not nearly as bright as the original MacBook display.
