Modbook – A Mac Tablet

If you’re tired of waiting for Apple to release a new tablet or can’t find an old Newton, you need not wait anymore. Other World Computing is an exclusive US-based distributor of the Axiotron Modbook, the world’s only Mac-based tablet computer. Now, with new memory and storage upgrade options, plus a $200 price reduction, the Modbook may be just what you’ve been looking for in mobile computing.

Imagine sitting with your coffee at any cafe and drawing or writing directly on a screen, without any keyboard to confound your fingers or slow down your creative vision. This isn’t a fake Mac, but a converted MacBook, so all of your beloved Mac features still exist, including Mac OS X Leopard, a built-in iSight camera, Airport, Bluetooth, and a Dual-Layer SuperDrive. You choose the power configuration from a 2.0GHz to a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo processor; 2, 4 or 6GB of RAM; and storage capacity from 120GB 5400RPM drive up to a total of 820GB of internal storage capacity. You can even choose 80GB or 160GB SSD (Solid State Drive) technology if you prefer.

Prices start at $1899 for a 13.3″ Modbook OR, if you prefer to BYOB (Bring Your Own Book), you can supply OWC with your own Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook, and for only $1149, OWC can convert your black or white 13″ MacBook via its Modservice. We save you some green too if you use your own Mac OS X 10.5, your existing RAM, and hard drive. If you want us to upgrade any of your internal components during the conversion process, we can do that too.
