Macbook of my dreams.

This ain’t no prototype people – this is the real deal – Axiotron’s Modbook is a modified Macbook that turns it into an artist’s dream. Essentially they took a wacom tablet and melded it with an apple laptop – what you get is a digital sketchbook.

It’s not fragile either:

Both the Axiotron Modbook’s top shell and interior display frame are built from top-grade aircraft quality magnesium alloy, giving the Modbook its superior structural strength.

Unlike the anodized aluminum used in most computers, the Modbook’s tough and scratch-resistant magnesium top shell is protected by a triple layer of metal plating – nickel over copper and topped with chrome. The Modbook comes in standard satin finish (now available) or optional mirror finish (available in mid-2008).

I have yet to buy a laptop and would be a bit hesitant to buy a laptop modified by a third-party but this product looks pretty promising – not to mention it was Macworld’s Best of Show 2007.

If you are interested in purchasing a Modbook, all the details regarding its North American release are here.
