    Well we have all dreamed of it.. I know I have. And guess what? Due to a little bit of hackint0shing, and some serious hardware modding, it's done.

    An Apple tablet, the specs are so much better than the iPad.

    Scroll down to the middle of the page for screenies. http://www.insanelywind.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2457

    Believe it or not, This mod(With a used, eBay Amazon, MSI Wind U-100) is said to be priced around $350.

    His specs of the MSI Wind are as follows...(With a 2GB RAM upgrade)

    This exceeds all expectations of what the iPad was to be.. With a web cam, and a FULL OS X interface, it clearly beats the iPad, but it will never be as light, the battery wont last as long, but hey, it's an OS X tablet!

    he will be making a guide soon.. So far, from my understanding the only issue is a lot of people have problems with God's gift to the world, Duct Tape. It is held together by Duct tape, I dont have a problem with btw

    . And also, he needs to add an FN Key to either an on screen keyboard(because there are like none that have one...) or be able to mount a tiny button onto the side to enable settings like WiFi/Bluetooth toggles.

    Yup, no webcam, no OS X, no nothing..

    I really don't care if its ugly, I have ALWAYS wanted a mac tablet.. It's been like a dream of mine since Apple came out with the mac books. then I heard about ModBook's but I defenitly wont ever have the money for those. This is perfect. It's affordable and It's a mac tablet.

    That's pretty cool! But, I don't think I'd want it.
