Axiotron ModBook Tablet PC Ships Today

Winner of Macworld Expo’s 2007 Best of Show Award, Axiotron’s High-End Slate-Style Modbook Integrates the Apple MacBook Computer’s Speed, Power, Usability and Elegance With Advanced Pen-Sensitive Tablet Computer Functionality To Give Design Professionals And Mac Enthusiasts The World’s Only Tablet Mac Solution

Axiotron, Inc., a leading proprietary high-tech hardware solution provider, announced today that its flagship product, the Modbook, the first fully functional Apple-authorized tablet Mac solution, is now shipping to consumers.

The only Mac-based tablet computer on the market, Axiotron’s Modbook seamlessly integrates a state-of-the-art Wacom digitized pen-sensitive LCD slate-style display with Apple MacBook’s legendary ease of use and design sensibility, giving artists and design-oriented professionals enhanced onscreen writing and drawing functionality when they need it most.

“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. “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.”

Named Best of Show at Macworld 2007, Axiotron’s Modbook melds Apple MacBook’s speed, power, superior strength and elegance with Wacom’s leading digitizer technology to provide an unparalleled 512 levels of pressure sensitivity for a fast, accurate and intuitive user experience. Offering twice the pen sensitivity and control of any tablet PC on the market, the Modbook gives artists and design oriented professionals the increased freedom, flexibility and precision control to create and edit digital art using a variety of specially designed pen tips that are included with each Modbook.

A perfect blend of style and functionality, each Modbook comes pre-installed with Mac OS X Leopard™, the award winning OS X’s built-in Inkwell handwriting recognition, 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. Also, every Modbook features a built-in Global Positioning System (GPS).

In addition to all of the features of the powerful Apple MacBook base system, the Axiotron Modbook’s largest-in-class wide angle 13.3″ widescreen display offers wider viewing angles and a higher contrast ratio, resulting in darker blacks and more vivid, saturated colors while maintaining the same resolution and aspect ratio of the original MacBook display.

Providing superior structural strength for almost every situation, both the Modbook’s top shell and the interior display frame are built from top grade, aircraft quality magnesium alloy. A triple layer of metal plating – nickel over copper and topped with chrome – results in an extremely scratch resistant and aesthetically pleasing surface, and is available in standard satin or optional mirror finish.

Axiotron will showcase the Modbook at the upcoming Macworld Expo 2008 (Booth # S-408) with a host of hands-on mini-seminars conducted by renowned comic book artist Kody Chamberlain, Emmy award-winning animator Shannon Tindle, award-winning photographer Caesar Lima, acclaimed architectural designer Matthew Brewster and Cal State Fullerton design professor Bryan Cantley. Additionally, the Modbook’s broad range of application functionality will be highlighted at Axiotron’s in-booth vendor stations featuring representatives from Microsoft, Adobe, Corel, Autodesk, Circus Ponies™ Software, Edge Health Solutions, GPSNavX™ and Vision Objects.

The Modbook has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $2,290 and is available in the United States and Canada exclusively through Axiotron Authorized Resellers (AAR).
