If you are looking for a touchscreen Apple laptop that actually lets you draw on the screen, the Axiontron ModBook Tablet PC is perfect for you!

What’s New in the Modbook?

Improved MacBook Compatibility

Axiotron ModBook With Mac OS X Compatibility

Axiotron’s QuadCoat process adapted from auto industry techniques helps protect the Modbook’s sturdy-yet-lightweight magnesium top shell while lowering the Modbook’s weight.

With the new liquid metallic coating process and other changes the weight of the highly portable Modbook decreases to 5.3 pounds.

Enhanced Functionality

Improved display characteristics and drawing surface: Axiotron’s new proprietary bonding process decreases the gap between the AnyView LCD panel and ForceGlass screen cover. Result: better contrast ratio (especially outdoors), firmer drawing surface and reduced pen-to-cursor parallax.

Enhanced GPS capability: The reconfigured GPS antenna obtains a four-satellite fix in an unobstructed outdoor area more easily, enabling the Modbook’s GPS module to furnish coordinate data to third-party GPS applications with greater reliability.

Better pen tablet performance: Specially designed internal Mu-metal shielding, in addition to existing shielding, boosts pen tablet responsiveness by greatly decreasing the potential for interference from electronic noise sources.

New Software

Autodesk SketchBook Express

Autodesk SketchBook Express 2009, an industry leading sketching and drawing application, is now exclusively available on the Modbook as part of its standard software package.

NEW! Axiotron Quickflip allows users of NVIDIA-powered Modbooks to switch their screen rotation in 90-degree increments, going from landscape mode to portrait mode and back again. (Available soon at no charge for download to any NVIDIA-powered Modbook.)

Improved Serviceability

The Modbook’s new bonding process, as well as other refined assembly procedures, have been designed to optimize field serviceability by Axiotron’s recently expanded dealer network who can provide servicing and repair at convenient locations across the U.S. and Canada.
