We’re not usually big on highlighting concept gadgetry that probably won’t ever find its way onto retail shelves, but, in the case of the genuinely appealing MacPad Pro, we’re willing to make an exception.

The creation of designer Jules Moretti, this particular pipedream is—as the name suggests—a hybrid device that hovers somewhere between a MacBook portable computer and the hugely popular iPad tablet.

Although it sports a conventional notebook form factor, the MacPad hybrid boasts the iPad’s aesthetic design and svelte physical profile along with a pair of touch-screen displays, one placed in the lid and one where users would ordinarily find a QWERTY keyboard.

According to Moretti, the MacPad Pro is around 25 percent lighter than existing MacBook systems, its capacitive screens have Retina Display resolution, and it offers connectivity support via three USB 3.0 ports and a Thunderbolt access point. 

Object of unobtainable desire or otherwise, the simple fact is… we want one.
