Axiotron’s slate-style Modbook Apple MacBook transformed into a table PC has officially started shipping. The system is the only Mac based tablet computer on the market and integrates a Wacom digitized pen-sensitive LCD with a MacBook’s guts.
"After introducing the product earlier in the year, we have experienced a tremendous amount of positive response to the Modbook as its exclusive modular design and superior functionality provide the best tablet solution on the market for artists and designers," said Andreas Haas, President of Axiotron. "The Modbook's recent designation as an Apple-authorized product has allowed us to better meet the needs of our extremely patient customers and we are proud to be able to ship a product that resets the bar for Mac users everywhere."
The Modbook won the best of show award at the 2007 Macworld Expo. Modbook's are powered by either a 2.0GHz or a 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and ship with OSX Leopard installed. Software on the machines includes Inkwell handwriting recognition software. The optical drive is a 24x DVD combo or the 8x DVD super multi. If it’s available on a MacBook, it’s on the Modbook. GPS is also featured on every ModBook as well.
