The Axiotron Modbook

Posted at 6:02pm on 15 May 2008

Flat Mac

This is a pretty nice idea - a tablet conversion for the MacBook.

It's been under development for a while, but they seem to have refined the design a bit since it's inception.

People have been clamouring for Apple to make a decent tablet Mac since around the time that Jobs canned the Newton. The fact that Axiotron actually went as far as to build one suggests that the market for such a thing is a reality, not just a lot of hot air.

The only thing that puts me off getting one is the sneaking suspicion that if it's really any good, Apple will be releasing an official model any minute now, and if they don't, it's because it isn't.
