Video of Apple Mac OS X Tiger running on Asus touchscreen Tablet PC

“About a month back there was a news about the World’s lightest and the smallest Apple Tablet PC / UMPC. Well this was custom built one. If you’ve not heard/seen it in action here it is,” Only UMPC reports.

Only UMPC reports, “Igor just sent us the video of the Asus R2H booting up the Mac OS X and how some of the applications run with the touch screen. This is awesome. For those who have been waiting for the Apple Tablet wait no more, Buy your favorite Tablet PC and install the Mac OS X.”

Igor adds:
Installed Mac OS X 10.4.7 JaS Pached and in custom installation (beside standard MAC OS stuff) also selected SSE2 patch. Installation had no problems (after I created the second install DVD).. it takes some time but it is very simple. Only issue is that it is not optimized for resolution of 800×480 so you can not see back and next buttons so you must use TAB button and try if the right button is selected. OK I almost forgot. It was nor dual boot installation. Mac OS X is my only OS now on Asus R2H.

It looks like Mac OS X and apps run painfully slow on that thing.


  1. MDN – I think you’re missing the point. What is important is that it can be done. This is just a first step to moving OS X to non-Apple hardware. True, right now the process is for true geeks, but they’ll work on a way to simplify the process.

    Let’s hope Apple addresses the situation soon.


  2. This is not real. It is a video box that is running different pre-recorded clips of the Mac OS actions. The Video stops and takes off at a diffetent point which means that the person who is pretending to run the Mac OS X has not everything well memorized and that is why he has to stop and start doing stuff again and then connected them together.

  3. THE iMAC

    In about 15 mins. (20:15) there’s a design programme on Arte ( a Franco-German TV channel ) solely about the iMac!

    This is, of course, for people in France and Germany and any others that can get it via satellite.

  4. Impressive. That is a very odd looking piece of equipment. Nonetheless it makes tablet OS X not only look viable, but possibly useful.

    I have both a 17″ MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo and a 13.3 inch black MacBook Core 2 Duo.

    I honest tend to use the MacBook the most. I carry it everywhere. It is so small and portable and sexy and fast. I love this little computer.

    If I could swing the monitor around and use a pen with it, I might marry it.

  5. You are all missing it

    This is just a apple mini without the case thats been put into a new housing and they attached a small 9 inch display that they bought to the outside.

    Who says this is running on none apple hardware?


  6. looks like a pain in the ass. Tablet PCs are so pointless until they come out with a good operating system designed for that kind of computing (XP version ain’t it). I want to see OS X lite on a new Apple Smart iPhone, If I want to carry a computer, I will carry my MBP.
