Axiotron, a hardware solutions provider, announced that its flagship Modbook product is now shipping to consumers. The company claims Modbook is the first fully functional Apple (News - Alert)-authorized tablet solution running Mac OS.
Modbook provides 512 levels of pressure sensitivity by combining Apple MacBook's speed, power, superior strength and elegance with Wacom's leading digitizer technology. There are various pen tips included with each Modbook and this gives artists and other creative professionals the increased freedom, flexibility and precision control to create and edit digital art.
“After introducing the product earlier in the year, we have experienced a tremendous amount of positive response to the Modbook as its exclusive modular design and superior functionality provide the best tablet solution on the market for artists and designers,” said Andreas Haas, President of Axiotron, in a statement.
Haas continued: “The Modbook's recent designation as an Apple-authorized product has allowed us to better meet the needs of our extremely patient customers and we are proud to be able to ship a product that resets the bar for Mac users everywhere.”
Each Modbook is loaded with features like a built-in iSight camera and an integrated 24x DVD Combo drive or 8x DVD SuperDrive, a 2.0 GHz or 2.2GHz Intel (News - Alert) Core 2 Duo processor, pre-installed with Mac OS X Leopard, the award winning OS X's built-in Inkwell handwriting recognition and largest-in-class wide angle 13.3" widescreen display.
The Modbook is available exclusively through Axiotron Authorized Resellers (AAR) in the United States and Canada for a suggested retail price of $2,290. Axiotron will showcase the Modbook at the upcoming Macworld Expo 2008 (Booth # S-408).
