OK.. the Axiotron Modbook, currently the world’s only Mac-based tablet computer, has been shipping from our docks since 2007. Apple has had the trademark of TabletMac transferred from Axiotron to Apple within the past year, sparking more interest into the rumors of an “official” Apple Tablet-style computer across the web. Some of the rumors include an iPhone-like device with larger, netbook-sized screen; a MacBook Air based device, even a resurrection of the Newton. Many of the rumors include thoughts of running a tablet style Mac off the iPhone OS rather than the Mac OS.
Regardless of the speculation of whether, if, or when Apple may or may not introduce their fabled TabletMac device; Other World Computing, a fully certified Axiotron Authorized System Manufacturer (AASM), has two options to allow you to get your Mac Tablet Computer now. Why wait to feed your craving for a Mac-based Tablet? There’s no need to sweat whether the features you’re looking for may even be included.
The Axiotron Modbook comes complete with an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.13GHz processor, up to 6.0GB of memory, up to 1.28TB (that’s 1280GB) of drive capacity, Nvidia 9400M Performance Graphics, built in iSight, Airport wireless 802.11b/g/n, runs on a full version of Mac OS 10.6 “Snow Leopard”, and and exclusively for OWC customers, a built-in WAAS enabled GPS at no additional cost. If you can do it on a MacBook, you can do it on the Modbook – plus so much more!

The turnkey service includes FedEx shipping to and from OWC in a protective shipping box and exclusively for OWC customers, a built-in WAAS enabled GPS at no additional cost. Conversion turn-around is 48 hours or less and customers may also select options for memory, hard drive, SSD, and optical drive upgrades for OWC to install during the Modservice conversion.
Both new Modbook and Modservice conversion offerings are backed by a 90 Day Axiotron Hardware limited warranty, which can be optionally extended to up to a Three-Year OWC Warranty starting from $129.00. The Extended Warranty covers the original MacBook components; any customer-selected upgrades installed by OWC at the time of modification, and the tablet components.
