Axiotron's Modservice has found favour with anyone who wants to turn their standard Macbook laptop into a pen-operable tablet computer, but we've never really known exactly what's involved in the conversion process.

We've got a much better idea now, though, as a company called TechRestore has put together a stop-motion video that shows how it's done.

You can watch the clip below - a MacBook becomes a Modbook in less than two minutes (though, obviously, this isn't in real-time).

Impressively, TechRestore is offering to carry out the tablet conversion overnight - check out its website for more details.
