Axiotron's Modbook Now Shipping

Illustration for article titled Axiotrons Modbook Now Shipping

We previously brought you news of Axiotron's brilliant Modbook, which is essentially the first real Macbook tablet. Although it's Apple authorized, it is not an official Apple product, obviously. Nevertheless, the guys at Axiotron have gone to work on an item all fanboys are lusting after, and the end result is looking rather tasty.

The main draw of the Modbook is the Wacom digitized pen-sensitive LCD slate-style display, which is combined with either a 2.0 GHz or 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, a built-in iSight camera and an integrated 24x DVD Combo drive or 8x DVD SuperDrive. We have not tried it out properly yet, but if you have $2,290 saved away for a Macbook tablet, the Modbook maybe the solution to your weighty wallet woes. [Axiotron]

DISCUSSION

@JoOngle: Agreed. This reminds me of when Apple allowed Motorola to develop a Java-based iTunes app for their phones that worked with iTunes. It was basically a way for them to test the idea of a music phone without investing any money themselves. If the modbook does well, Apple will make their own.
