Axiotron tablet Macs

Axiotron has announced a new program that will convert customers' MacBook computers into pen-based Modbook tablet devices. The company had previously only transformed brand new base systems into Modbooks. The tablets feature "digitizer" technology that allows drawing and writing on the device while controlling the Mac OS X operating system environment without a mouse or keyboard. Other features include handwriting recognition and an integrated GPS module.

The Modservice can convert almost any non-aluminum Intel Core 2 Duo-based MacBook. Customers can also request to have the system upgraded with more RAM or a larger hard drive. The tablets also require Mac OS X 10.5, although systems running version 10.4 can purchase a license for the Leopard operating system as part of the package.

Axiotron will begin converting the Modbooks sometime in November. Potential customers can sign up on the website to be put on a waiting list and will be notified when the company is ready to work on their MacBook. Prices start at $1300, which saves around $900 compared to the Modbooks offered without the customer's base system.
