Behold what could very well be the sexiest piece of kit introduced at Macworld. Axiotron took the wraps off its latest OS X tablet endeavor yesterday at Macworld and caused inner conflict in nearly everyone who passed its booth. I can spend $5,000 on a tablet, right? NO, I need to pay rent! But the weather is great in California, can’t I make it on the streets? No, I’ll miss the premier of Lost! Wait, I can just watch it on the Modbook Pro… If you can swing it, Axiotron’s first Pro version based on the 15-inch MacBook Pro most definitely has the juice every Mac fan has been hoping for. 15.4-inch WXGA touchscreen display with finger and pen support, 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor (2.4GHz base), NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT graphics processor, 320GB 7200 rpm hard drive or 128GB SSD, integrated GPS, handwriting recognition and plenty more – all wrapped in a 0.93-inch thick case. Basically, it’s 6.6 pounds of hot. Axiotron is currently offering a $400 discount for Macworld but we have to image if $5,000 is too much, so is $4,600. If you were already on board however, the discount is nothing but gravy.
