Hacked MacBook reborn as a tablet

You need an iPad? And you have a broken MacBook? So, you can do your own tablet! Just look what Matt at Enigma Penguin did with his old MacBook. He decided that he would recycle his old laptop and turn it into a tablet.

The idea is not unique. Axiotron sells the ModBook, a MacBook that has been transformed into a tablet. But However, if you don’t want to spend your money, and if you have a lot of patience and a broken Apple laptop, you can do it. Matt also blogged how he made his device.

After tearing down the MacBook and removing non-functional hardware, Matt bought 3rd party touch screen. Then removed the MacBook's original display, replaced it with a new one, installed drivers. The tablet runs applications and works correctly. It even has Ink, OS X's built-in handwriting recognition feature.
