That’s where most tablet-like designs guessing at the look and specs of what’s now revealed to be the iPad. But I say to you in great defiance: not this one! This one shall gather a bit of light still! It was conceived before that faithful unveiling day, and its ideas shall be carried on until fruition! I give to you this! The MacView, as designed by Patrycjusz Brzezinski, queller of the hoards of maddened Apple fans.
Oh Brzezinski, you sly one you, how did you think of a device so close to what became the iPad, yet so very much more better?
That sentence was just terrible!
Let’s get to the specs of this MacView:
A thickness of just 7mm.
A 1152×720 LED touchscreen display.
Dimensions of 15 x 24 cm.
An additional SLIDE PANEL that can be used as a keyboard.
Light and sturdy outer carbon shell.
4GB of RAM.
Full OSX operating system.
And what is this? Is this something that’s invented for the iPad to rest in? Nay! It is invented by Brzezinski for the MacView! It’s a dock that makes the pad into a regular ol’ desktop computer. Mark my words you’ll be seeing these sorts of docks SOON on the secondary market once the iPad is actually on the market.
I don’t like to be quick to judge* *most of the time but I’m definitely for this design over the iPad at the moment. That extra sliding pad underneath would add loads of functionality, not to mention a bit more physical security for the whole device. But then again, all else aside – why again would I want to trade my old MacBook for one of these? The answer to that should be obvious, shouldn’t it?
Because it is NEW!
