A couple shots of Axiotron modBook Pro from macWorld 2009 in San Francisco, California, USA.

modBook being used (not the modBook Pro) by a company artist. One lucky guy won a modBook via random ticket drawing. :T

I've always wanted one but I found an actual macBook Pro for a really wonderful price at the college. Anyone on here using one?

Visually, it looks thinner, for sure. They're using the guts of a macBook Pro so it's more powerful. However... the biggest upgrade I see is that it's stylus and touch responsive. That's right... it's a touch screen! You can use the stylus and then type keyboard shortcuts at the same time. I'd imagine that you'd have to have a GUI pop up. It'd be nice to customize something like that and I wonder if it's going to be any faster than have your toolbar up. Regardless... without giving them your macBook Pro, the thing is going for a fairly steep $5000 USD!
