Touch Screen Macbook Pro

by Chris_Fon / January 19, 2007 7:46 AM PST

I susbcribe to the Mac on easysilence video podcast. Their last release was a summary video of Macworld, about halfway through they showed people using a touch screen. At first I thought it was an Apple touch screen, but it appeared to be mounted on a form similar to the Macbook Pro, and it defintely had a series of ports on the side, including an available mini-DVI, leading to my belif that this isnt a clever touchscreen/hub or a touch screen connected to a Macbook Pro, but a full on tablet computer.

Can anyone confirm this?

Not MacBook Pro.

I remember seeing this, it is a 3rd party tablet running OS X. I think a touchscreen MBP would make the CNET Front Door etc... and there is nothing of the sort in the tech news.

Looks like the Modbook has the exact same spec as the standard macbook configs, however the price is in the Macbook Pro Bracket, making it a buy if u REALLI REALLI want a touch screen.

Still a tablet with a superdrive, a webcam and Core2Duo!!! SWEET!!!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
