GainSaver, the premiere online reseller of used Macintosh computers, announced today it has become an Authorized ModBook Reseller and will be the only source for Certified Pre-owned Modbook Tablet Mac computers starting at only $1479.

Best of Show at Macworld in 2007, the one and only Axiotron® Modbook® is the award-winning Tablet Mac® computer that enables users to draw, sketch and write directly on the screen. The Modbook is built from a genuine Apple® MacBook® which is used as the base system with a Wacom® graphics tablet drawing surface that replaces the keyboard and original screen.

Axiotron's innovative design and manufacturing process converts a genuine Apple® MacBook® computer into a super graphics tablet that provides all the functionality of a MacBook with a pen interface.

The Modbook gives creative professionals and artists the perfect productivity tool: a tablet Mac that lets you draw, sketch and paint anywhere and everywhere you go! Modbook users can sit and draw under a tree, in a coffee house, on a long flight - anywhere the inspiration strikes.

The GainSaver Certified Pre-owned Modbook comes with a choice of base systems. The base system is the original pre-owned Apple Macbook used to create the finished Modbook tablet. GainSaver shoppers can select from a number of configurations to build their Modbook. Lower GHz base systems cost less, while higher GHz base systems offer more speed and performance. Five base system options are currently available:

  • Macbook 1.83GHz Intel Core 2 Duo White (Apple Mfr Part MA699LL/A)
  • Macbook 1.83GHz Intel Core Duo White (Apple Mfr Part MA254LL/A)
  • Macbook 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo White (Apple Mfr Part MA700LL/A)
  • Macbook 2.0GHz Intel Core Duo White (Apple Mfr Part MA255LL/A)
  • Macbook 2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo White (Apple Mfr Part MB062LL/A)

GainSaver makes the Mac affordable for thousands of people every month. And now, as an Authorized ModBook Partner, GainSaver can do the same for all those who want a Tablet Mac.

"About the only difference buyers will notice between new and used is all the money they save," said Steve Harper, sales director at GainSaver. "That's because the GainSaver ModBook is built from an original, pre-owned Macintosh Macbook. The tablet surface and the pen that comes with it are brand new."

GainSaver shoppers can completely customize their Modbook. Along with the base system, the hard drive capacity, optical drive selection and memory size can each be set to a wide range of options by using the GainSaver Configurator. Available options include the Airport Extreme Card, Apple Mouse, Battery, Extended Warranty and Insurance.
