OWC Announces Instant Rebates For Modbook, the World's Only Tablet Based Mac, and MacBook To Modbook Modservice Conversion

$100 Instant Rebate Available On Write & Draw Modbook 13.3", $150 Instant Rebate On MacBook 13.3" White or Black Modservice (February 27, 2009)

DMN Newswire--2009-2-27--Other World Computing (OWC(r)), a leading Mac and PC technology company, today announced two instant rebates, on the purchase of an Axiotron Modbook(r), the world's only Mac-based tablet computer that lets users draw and write directly on the screen, and Modservice(tm), a service that converts an existing Intel(r) Core Duo based MacBook(r) computer into a Modbook. With the $100 instant rebate applied, the Modbook 13.3" model is priced at $2,139.00 and the Modservice $150 instant rebate reduces the conversion service cost to $1,149.00.

OWC - The Single Source For Buy New or "Bring Your Own "Book" (BYOB) Options

OWC is the exclusive US-based distributor of the Axiotron Modbook, as well as being an Axiotron Authorized System Manufacturer (AASM), and fully certified to convert existing MacBooks into full-featured Modbooks with all of the same functionality that has earned Modbook numerous awards and accolades.

Custom Configure With Upgrades, Extended Warranty

The Axiotron Modbook solution, starting from $2139 (including instant rebate), is available equipped with up to a Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz processor, Intel X3100 or Nvidia 9400M video chipset, up to 6GB of memory, up to 750GB of internal hard drive capacity, and a 8X Dual-Layer SuperDrive. 

For those who already own an Apple MacBook "White" or "Black" Core Duo or Core 2 Duo Model, for $1149 (including instant rebate), OWC provides Modservice which converts the existing MacBook into a full-fledged Modbook solution. Included in the Modservice price from OWC is a protective shipping box for the MacBook and both pickup and return delivery services via Federal Express. In addition to the tablet conversion, OWC customers can further choose to upgrade their solution with options of up to 6GB of memory starting from $39, faster and higher capacity hard drives up to 500GB from $65, and faster DVD and CD burning with an 8X Dual-Layer SuperDrive. Data transfer options are also offered so customer data can be backed-up and reloaded after the Modbook conversion is completed.

Both the new Modbook and Modservice offerings are backed by a One Year Warranty, which can be optionally extended to a full Three-Year Warranty for an additional $349.00. The Extended Warranty covers the original MacBook components; any customer-selected upgrades installed by OWC at the time of modification, and the tablet components. 

"Declassified" Video Shows Entire Modservice Assembly Process

Because of the unique status of the Modbook being the only Mac-based tablet computer available and the proprietary process of Modservice, detailed production information wasn't available to the general public until OWC recently declassified assembly video footage taken in its engineering labs.
