Axiotron, the folks that brought us a Macbook in the form of a touchscreen tablet, has updated their Modbook for 2009.  Apple’s OS X now runs more smoothly, longer battery life, a more efficient sleep mode and full Bluetooth for pairing an external keyboard or mouse.  They’ve also upped the anty on the casing and added a QuadCoat finish – used by the auto industry – that protects the ‘sturdy-yet-lightweight magnesium top shell’, while reducing weight to 5.3lbs.  Axiotron has also improved the display resulting in a better touch response and contrast ratio.  Lastly, they’ve enhanced the GPS, which now obtains a quicker fix indoors and outdoors.

You can get your very own Modbook here, starting at $2,250

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
