Start Saving: Mac Tablet Begins Shipping
The Modbook from Axiotron is the only Apple-authorized Mac tablet available, and it just began shipping. It's basically a Macbook coupled with Wacom's pen-sensitive digitizer technology. "The Modbook will come pre-loaded with Mac OS X Leopard and is powered by either a 2GHz or 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor. Other hardware specifications include an iSight camera, an integrated 24x DVD Combo drive/8x DVD SuperDrive, and built-in GPS capability." It also sports a 13.3" display and starting price of $2,290, which isn't too bad. I actually considered getting one as a late Christmas gift for my wife until I realized it would be a waste of money. With all the ribbons, wrapping paper and a box to play with, she would never even use the damn computer.
