modbook days compiled
a Mac fanboy. I'm a tablet/stylus user. I hardly ever touch my mouse at all. So when I heard about the Axiotron Modbook - a macbook with a Wacom face, I had to check it out.

There are some limitations to the application, but it adds a lot of functionality to the modbook which otherwise only has a floating software keyboard.
a week of using the modbook, I have to say that it's hardly enough time
to get out of "play mode". As I said on Day One of the review, there
