A Japanese company named Macotakara.jp has created a case for your iPad that turns it into a MacBook Pro. The case pictured above with the attached iPad is reported to have a built-in Lithium Polymer batter that allows you to charge your iPad while it is in use. It also features a USB port, a mini USB port and Bluetooth for the keyboard to connect to your iPad.

MacBook Pro ? No just a customized iPad

The case is available for purchase via Japanese retailer Rakuten for 5,980 yen (about $75) so there is a chance that this interesting case lands in Rakuten’s US based Buy.com soon. The case can also be found on Amazon.co.jp and is said to be only compatible for the iPad 2, the minimal size difference might mean that even the new iPad should fit into but don’t take our word for it.

  1. Would be interesting if it gives the ability to write apps. In other case whats the use of it with just a keyboard when it doesnt have the computing power and ability to write apps as in MacBook pro.
