Challenge the Norm
Reject the status quo and team up with us to revolutionize the tools creatives use by shaping and fine-tuning the look and feel of our products, brand and marketing.
Invest in the Future
Our long-term goal is to become the go-to pen solution for Mac creative professionals. If we’re successful, we could become one of the most influential companies in the creative community. Help us create a new standard for Mac creative professionals.
One Company Can’t Possibly Serve Everyone
" We feel strongly that customers are not really looking for a converged Mac and iPad."
For creative professionals, there is no simple solution. When creatives need the pen capabilities of the iOS platform and the power, performance, and portability of the macOS platform, Apple recommends purchasing one device from each platform, or a third-party solution, and using them in tandem. This leaves creative professionals on their own to build, maintain, and troubleshoot the most critical tool in their workflow.
Let’s Tear Down The Old Paradigm…
Their desire to combine pen capabilities of the iOS platform with the power, performance and portability of the macOS platform, force creative professionals to choose an “almost” solution and force their workflows around them.
...By Challenging the Status Quo....
We created Modbook Inc because we believe that “almost” solutions should never be the only choice. With the development of the upcoming Modbook Pro X complete, we will be delivering everything in a single end-to-end integrated package that will blow away anything on the market today.
Instead of being another “duct taped” solution, our proposition is tantalizing simple: Offer pen, power and portability, in one package, and at the same price - easiest sales pitch, ever.
… And Together, We Can Establish A New Paradigm.
Creating the product to challenge the status quo only gets you halfway there. Even the greatest product means nothing, if the community you’re helping doesn’t know you exist.
Just by developing the Modbook in the open, we have already organically built a loyal and passionate user base. Finally, with the Modbook Pro X ready to go into production, it is time to let the rest of the creative community know that they don’t have to settle for “almost” solutions anymore.
Use of Funds
By investing in Modbook Inc., you’ll provide us with the fuel needed to launch the Modbook Pro X with a comprehensive sales and marketing effort in the US before going worldwide, grow our sales and customer support teams to capitalize on our buzz, and scale our production efforts to meet the worldwide demand.
If you dislike “almost” solutions as much as we do, help us shake up the status quo.
HOW WE DO IT
Once the Modbook Pro X becomes available, creative professionals can finally leave “almost’ solutions behind.
Building A Very Special Mac, Like Shelby did for Ford!
By taking the key components of an original Apple MacBook Pro and integrating them into our proprietary pen-enabled conversion kit, we transform a 15.4-inch Retina-display MacBook Pro notebook-style computer into a 15.4-inch Retina-display pen tablet-style Modbook Pro X.
MODBOOK PRO X,
PUSHING THE LIMITS OF TABLET COMPUTING
Power, performance and portability set us apart, but our innovative suite of features put us in a class like no other.
Even the most expensive, highest-end tablet solutions from the closest competitors Microsoft and Wacom are having a hard time measuring up to the core specs of the upcoming Modbook Pro X. This isn't too surprising when considering that we start with one of the most powerful laptop computers available, the top-end Apple Retina 15-inch MacBook Pro.
Supercharging Creative Productivity
The upcoming Modbook Pro X exclusively features the revolutionary Apple Touch Bar and the multi-function Touchpad Remote, setting a new bar for tablet computing solutions. They boost productivity to new levels, allowing users to get more work done, faster.
Revolutionary Apple Touch Bar
Supporting multi-touch, the Apple Touch Bar is a retina display bar providing dynamic, context-specific interface controls that push man-machine interaction to new levels. While very useful on notebooks, the Touch Bar is a game changer for tablet computers, and will be exclusively available on the Modbook Pro X.
Multi-function Touchpad Remote
While working with the pen, this remote control fits comfortably into the palm of the other, normally idle hand, enabling simultaneous secondary touch and gesture input, kicking creative workflows into the next gear. In laptop mode, it mounts in the Keyboard Stand, where it serves as a fully featured multi-touch trackpad.
Only the upcoming Modbook Pro X offers the built-in versatility to effortlessly adapt to the many use cases and environments creative professionals deal with as they race through a busy day.

OUR JOURNEY SO FAR

“BECAUSE THE ONES WHO ARE CRAZY ENOUGH TO THINK THEY CAN CHANGE THE WORLD, ARE THE ONES WHO DO.”
This was the catchphrase of Apple’s 1997 Think Different commercial. The ad campaign was meant to inspire both those users stubbornly clinging on to their Macs despite everybody else telling them to just get that awesome new Compaq PC, as well as those proud few Apple employees who were fighting to help keep the company alive. I was one of those employees and this spirit still drives me to this day.
The Modbook was born out of my dream to create a Mac Tablet that is truly fit for creatives Mac professionals to use wherever they are. A best-in-class pen display, in a single portable and versatile package, and powerful enough to run the creative apps in which they spend lifetimes to become proficient.
Creative professionals don’t compromise on the work they do, and bristle at having to compromise on the tools they use. Finally, with the our upcoming Modbook Pro X, creatives the world over won’t have to settle for an “almost” solution anymore, and no longer need to “make it work”.
We have labored tirelessly for many years to create both a winning product and a winning business strategy. We’ve been fortunate to have had the support of select large investors and angel groups through previous equity offerings available to accredited investors only.
Now, we’re opening up our revolution to everyone, and we want you to become part of it.
As a Modbook shareholder, you’ll join us in challenging the status quo and pushing the limits, all while sharing in the returns as we shake up this $1.9 Billion and growing market.
Let’s make it happen,
CEO & Lead Engineer
