The Makers of the Modbook contacted me about their newest updated version and it looks exciting! Many of you familiar with the Modbook knew it had a few kinks to work out and it looks like Axiotron has listened to their customers and made all the changes to make this portable , cordless, creative tablet all the more irresistible! To find out what they have done, read on:
The new Modbook features changes which impact almost every aspect of the device!
This means that the Modbook now has a battery that last longer (yeh!) improved sleep and system performance and one that we have all been waiting for: Better pen performance without that distracting resetting from electronic interference! This is a noteworthy change as this was something that many previous modbook owners wanted to see changed and Axiotron listened! You know they love their customers!
The Modbook is now lighter which means more lap comfort , weighing a mere 5.3 lbs! How did they do this? They didn't take anything away, they just improved the top shell using a QuadCoat T process which is some cool metallic coating adapted from the Auto industry. Axiotron is innovative like that! Yes, it is scratch resistant!
Hey! Remember those blue tooth issues? All fixed! Now your wireless keyboard and mouse will pair with the Modbook as though there was never a disagreement! No adapters or glumblings..just ahhhh..
Okay some of you reported less than cushy fit between the top and bottom..and YEP..this is all better now! There is no longer a gap of any kind because the Axiotrons AnyView LCD and Force Glass screen cover are now sealed using a process that eliminates the air gap between the two components! This also means a better viewing surface (such as taking this baby out in the field) as well as a firmer drawing surface and decreased pen to surface orientation.
Axiotron has designed a new internal Mu-metal shielding which adds a real boost to the pens responsiveness. (This is part of the blocking of electronic noise that irked us)
If you are taking your new modbook with you on your next trip, well you won't get lost because the Modbook now has a more accurate GPS system! So , not only can you have complete mobility while in the field working (or playing) but you will know where you are.
Hey, I don't know about you ,but I sure get lost in my work sometimes!
Need software? Well , all you artists will be glad to know that SketchBook express 2009 is now included as standard on all new modbook orders!
Ready to order? Here is a great new service that many current macbook owners have been suggesting and wishing for in the forums. "Can I send in my macbook and have Axiotron convert it into a modbook?" Well...drum roll please..........YES! Now you can do just that! Non Aluminum Intel CoreT 2-Duobased Macbooks can be shipped in for a transformation starting at $1299.00!
Rather you want to order the Modbook as is, or have your own MacBook converted to a lean mean drawing machine, you can start right here: http://www.axiotron.com/modbook
Sounds like the folks at Axiotron have been very busy and hard at work addressing all the previous issues and listening to their customers! I can't wait to get my hands on one of these and write a more personal review ! So be sure and check back for my one on one impressions!
Thanks for caring Axiotron!
