The One and Only Tablet Mac®
The Axiotron™ Modbook™ is a revolutionary slate-style tablet Mac that enables users to draw and write directly on the screen.
Axiotron’s innovative design and manufacturing process converts an Apple® MacBook® computer into a complete tablet solution, the Axiotron Modbook, while retaining Apple MacBook functionality.
Built for artists, mobile users, students and professionals, the Modbook’s condensed form factor and integrated pen-based user experience offer unprecedented flexibility and control over the creative process.
Handwriting recognition built into Mac OS® X Leopard® converts handwriting into printed text in every application and provides extended system control through gesture recognition.
Designed in California by Axiotron’s team of American and German engineers, the Modbook comes standard with built-in iSight® camera, integrated 24x Combo drive or 8x SuperDrive and full Apple MacBook connectivity via Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0, FireWire® 400, Bluetooth™ 2.0 and AirPort Extreme®.
The Modbook is the only portable Mac solution that also features a built-in Global Positioning System (GPS).

|State-of-the-Art Pen Input
The Modbook uses Penabled® digitizer technology from Wacom®, the industry
leader in graphics tablets for professional artists. The Axiotron Digitizer Pen provides
an intuitive, comfortable and flexible way to control your digital environment.
As you draw in applications such as Adobe® Photoshop® and Corel® Painter™ the pen’s 512 levels of pressure sensitivity – twice the capability of any tablet PC – deliver precise and delicate control of renderings. The Axiotron Digitizer Pen is:
• Fast - 133 position updates per second
• Accurate - 20x display resolution
• Sensitive - 512 levels of pressure sensitivity
• Efficient - No batteries required
The included Axiotron Digitizer Pen features two programmable side buttons, plus a digital eraser. Also included are eleven replaceable pen tips in three versions: a spring-loaded Studio Nib (x3); a Pencil Nib (x3); and a Felt Nib (x5).
Unlike a touchscreen, users can work with the pen while their hand rests on the Modbook’s screen. The pen needs no batteries and always feels light and nimble.
Radio-based digitizer technology allows control of the cursor as the pen hovers over the screen, creating an intuitive, mouse-like interface.
|The Axiotron Modbook is fully compatible with Apple Inkwell®, a Mac OS X Leopard feature that provides system-level handwriting and gesture recognition instantly to all Mac applications. Axiotron Quickclicks™ software permits users to quickly input passwords and special characters or execute shortcuts and macros. Users can also connect a standard keyboard and mouse via USB or Bluetooth.|
