If you're a hard-core Apple fanboy but want the functionality of a tablet computer, there's a solution: get your MacBook transformed into a ModBook.
Originally available only in Canada, the service converts an existing Intel Core 2 Duo-based MacBook into an Axiotron ModBook. So far, this is believed to be the world's first and only Mac-based tablet computer that lets users draw and write directly on the screen.
Preordering is available immediately from OWC, with prices starting at $1,299.99. That includes a protective shipping box and FedEx air shipping to and from OWC.
You can also buy a new ModBook starting at $2,199 directly from OWC. As an Axiotron authorized system manufacturer, OWC is certified to convert existing MacBooks into full-featured ModBooks.
Together with the Modservice, OWC is also offering a full three-year warranty option that extends the Modservice conversion one-year warranty term. Priced at a hefty $349, the extended warranty covers the original MacBook components, any customer selected upgrades installed by OWC at the time of modification, and the tablet components.
