Now that the iPhone's gotten its chance to bask in the limelight, it's time to zoom in on Macworld's other big announcement—Axiotron's ModBook. The ModBook is a MacBook that's been morphed into a Mac tablet, and the guys at Macworld got some one-on-one time with an early pre-production unit. The first half of the video focuses more on the features of the ModBook, while the second, which we found more interesting, demos some of the ModBook's capabilities, particularly its ability to read your John Hancock. Starting at $2,279, the ModBook is one pricey beast, so unless you really need a tablet with OS X, you may want to consider buying an entry-level MacBook Pro instead.
