Conversion of Customer-Supplied MacBook into Modbook Only $699 through March 1, 2010 — Modbook Based on New 2.13GHz MacBook Available for Only $1,649
High-tech manufacturer Axiotron today announced a 2010 Kickoff Promotion on the Modbook, its award-winning Mac tablet. Under the promotion, the manufacturer’s suggested retail price for complete Modbooks built with a customer-supplied Apple MacBook base system is discounted to $699 (regularly $899) and the MSRP for complete Modbooks that include a new dealer-supplied 2.13GHz base system is discounted to $1,649 (regularly $1,849). The new promotion, which runs through March 1, 2010, effectively extends the Modbook holiday discount promotion announced in November.
Individual Axiotron dealers also offer value-priced complete Modbook systems based on pre-owned and refurbished base systems below the discounted MSRP of $1,649. A complete list of Axiotron’s dealers in ten countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia — with the most recent addition of Japan — is available at http://www.axiotron.com/buy.
The Modbook combines Axiotron’s tablet hardware and software technology, a Wacom Penabled digitizer and an Apple MacBook base system into a Mac-based tablet computer that’s been praised by reviewers for its portability and ease-of-use and embraced by creative professionals, students and general users.
With its fast processing speeds (2.13Ghz for Modbooks with new base systems), superior graphics (including an NVIDIA GeForce 9400M integrated graphics processor on many models), large 13.3-inch AnyView LCD display, durable ForceGlass screen, and 512 levels of pen pressure sensitivity (more than any tablet PC), the Modbook is the most powerful and affordable slate-style tablet computer system available.

Both the Mac OS X Leopard operating system and the latest version of Mac OS X, Snow Leopard, are supported on the Modbook.
Most MacBooks released since 2006 (with the exception of aluminum or polycarbonate unibody MacBook models) are eligible for conversion into Modbooks.
Customers who purchase the Modbook get a ninety-day Modcare warranty on the entire system (including the MacBook base system, whose warranty is voided during the Modbook conversion). Participating Axiotron dealers also offer extended warranty options. Servicing and repair are available through Axiotron’s service provider network.
“The response to our original holiday offer has been enthusiastic as more and more customers have embraced the Modbook, so we’re pleased to continue it in the new year,” said Axiotron CEO Andreas E. Haas.
