Ever wished your iPad could be more than a giant iPod touch? We know the screen on the iPad makes it far from that when it comes to productivity, but nothing is quite as productive as OS X. Enter the Axon Haptic Hackintosh tablet. It'll make you forget that hackintoshing was ever considered just for desktops.
