OWC Axiotron Modbook
Other World Computing has announced new memory and date storage upgrade options for its Axiotron Modbooks, along with a price reduction of $200 on new units. The Axiotron Modbook is a Mac-based tablet computer that utilizes inkwell handwriting-recognition technology to allow users to draw and write directly on the screen. Performance upgrades that are currently available include up to 6GB of memory, up to 820GB storage or 160GB of SSD storage, and a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo processor.
The price reduction offered by Other World Computers delivers a new 13.2-inch Modbook tablet starting at $1,900--which comes standard with a Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz processor, 2GB of memory, 120GB internal hard drive, and an 8X dual-layer SuperDrive. The company is also providing WAAS-enabled GPS while supplies last. Owners of current Intel Core 2 Duo white and black MacBooks have the option to convert their computer into a full-featured Modbook, starting at $1,150.
According to OWC both the new Modbook and Modservice conversions are backed by a one-year warranty, and allow users to extend to a three-year warranty for an additional $350.
