As psyched as we were to see the unveiling of the Jesus phone at today's Macworld Expo, we were very bummed at the absence of an ultraportable Mac. Luckily for us, Axiotron outted their new ModBook Mac Tablet. The chrome-plated magnesium tablet sports a 13.3-inch Wacom LCD and has similar specs as the current MacBook Pros.
