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
- 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.
