    Hi everyone,

    I came upon the Axiotron Modbook. And I have a few questions about it, and I hope some people could help me out :

    1 - How well does it work ?
    2 - How quick are they from order - shipping - receiving ?
    3 - I live in the UK and soon Ireland, so where can I find one ?
    4 - Are they reliable machines ?
    5 - I love the design (between user to pro design), do you ?

    I will probably have more questions and comments once people chip in. I would love to hear from anybody, if they do have a Axiotron Modbook and what they think about it.

    Cheers.

    1 - from what I've heard, it works very well, and the screen is very touch sensitive which is good.

    2 - I don't know the exact details, but I heard it takes somewhere between 1 - 3 weeks to get it.

    4 - www.macsales.com

    5 - I like the design, but for the price, I wouldn't buy it. The ModBook really is for people that want a touch sensitive screen for Photoshop or rich people who want to impress. :D

    I reckon you are right. I would love to see a demo of the ModBook in UK or Ireland and to see a price drop (probably if it is popular).

    I would love to get a Modbook, but I can't dig the non-keyboard interface. I need a keyboard; it's not easy doing 100 WPM writing, so why try?

    But if they turned a MBA into a convertible, I'd pay big bucks for that!
