MacBook Touch


So you’ve seen the dual trackpad patent, now check out this MacBook Touch concept based on that technology, which lets you control the interface from both sides of the display. Click here for first picture in gallery.

As the concept shows, the patent could avoid twisting screens completely on tablet-type computers. The transparent touch display will take the normal role of a multitouch surface when the computer is closed. The moment the computer is opened, using a normal clamshell move, the surface will display a keyboard or any other kind of user interface

Another day, another MacBook Touch concept, or so it seems. What sets this particular mockup apart from the others is its compatibility with a future docking station, complete with large LCD display and keyboard. Click here for first picture in gallery.

The black Powerbook-Titanium-style is quite nice, though. The concept may be feasible too: I like the idea of having an on-the-go tablet with touch keyboard for surfing, video, music and photography using a touch-optimized iLife suite

Put simply, a modder “took an old mac laptop and a wacom intuos2 tablet and hacked them together.” Instruction page. Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

By taking an older Wacom tablet, the Wacom Intuos2, and attaching it to an old MacBook, you’ve got yourself a slick little number that’ll let you draw right on the screen. And it doesn’t take all that much work, although if you’re especially lousy with a screwdriver you might still be intimidated by the project

If Apple were to make a MacBook Tablet, we hope it looks similar to one of these concepts, which were created by users for a contest — winner above. Click here for first picture in gallery.

We wouldn’t be surprised if one of these actually turned out quite close to what Apple’s picturing for their own machines. The big winner is Logan Lape, who brings us his “MacBook touch” in a way that illustrates its portability and usability

With the release of Apple’s iPod Touch, some have been wondering if the company will eventually release a MacBook Touch, so one person decided to come up with an interesting concept — above.

According to them, it will be a 720×480-screen PDA 1.5 times the size of the iPhone, running an embedded version of Mac OS X
