Move over iPad, here’s the touch-controlled tablet Mac from Axon Logic. A 1.6GHz 10-inch two-pound slice of special slate for Mac users, though it would be more accurate to describe this as a ‘Hackintosh’.

See, what Axon Logic have done is release the new tablet PC complete with a hidden EFI partition — which as Mac hackintosh heads know is a secret sauce they need for a relatively simple OS X install. Or any other Darwin-based OS.

According to Axon Logic:

Besides using only quality components, they are specifically chosen to be compatible with Darwin. That gives you the freedom to run, in addition to Windows and Linux, any* Darwin OS. Darwin and all of its required components such as the mach_kernel and kexts are on an EFI partition to make it effortless to install your favorite XNU/Darwin OS. Just pop in the disk, and follow the directions.

While the manufacturers are warning on licensing restrictions on the $750 tablet, which runs Linux and will also run Windows.
