ModBook Tablet available for pre-order

GBM forum member Jeffyo just picked that Other World Computing has the ModBook available for pre-order. You don’t have to provide a credit card number, either. They are taking pre-reservations. Pre-reserve prices start at $2199 for a 13.3″ AnyView Wide Screen with iSight built-in, with other pre-configured specs going for $2399 and $2699. All pre-reserve prices include built-in GPS.

Here are complete specs at the $2399 price:


  • Mac OS X 10.4
  • 2.00 ghz Intel Core 2 Duo (yep – a core 2 duo slate)
  • Intel Graphics 950
  • Built-in iSight
  • Apple Remote
  • 802.11g and Bluetooth
  • 1gb of 667mhz ddr2 SDRAM
  • 80gb 5400 rpm hard drive
  • SuperDrive
  • Anyview 13.3 Wide Screen
  • ForceGlass Screen & Camera Cover
  • Wacom Penabled Digitizer
  • Built-in WAAS enabled GPS

Anyone planning on buying one? The Mac guy in me is just salivating at the opportunity to try out a slate Mac tablet. Hopefully OWC will be getting us an eval unit for review and we can pass along our thoughts on this one.
