Company Is Developing Products Based on Newly Unveiled Aluminum Apple MacBooks -- Customers Can Convert Their Existing Apple MacBook into an Axiotron Modbook Using Axiotron Modservice for $1,299 Starting October 28 -- MSRP on Current Modbooks Drops to $2,199

Apple customers who purchase a new aluminum MacBook will now have a use for their previous MacBook -- they can turn it into an Axiotron Modbook through our Modservice.

High-tech solution hardware provider and Modbook® manufacturer Axiotron® today announced the company is planning to support in 2009 the newly unveiled line of aluminum Apple® MacBook® computers. Axiotron is designing and developing products based on the new Apple MacBook models for planned launch in mid-2009.

"We have been refining our conceptual design approach to respond quickly and effectively to changes in the products we modify," said Andreas E. Haas, CEO of Axiotron. "We couldn't be more pleased with the new MacBook concept. The design and architecture of Apple's new MacBooks fits well with our approach."

Axiotron's announcement of planned support in 2009 for the new Apple MacBook line follows the company's introduction last week of Axiotron Modservice™ which enables customers to transform their existing Apple MacBook into an Axiotron Modbook -- still the only tablet Mac® computer. The award-winning Modbook incorporates state-of-the-art Wacom® Penabled® digitizer technology to allow pen-based input.

Customers who use Axiotron Modservice can send their Apple MacBook to an Axiotron authorized and trained service provider for conversion into a full-featured Axiotron Modbook. Most white 13.3-inch Intel® Core™ 2 Duo-based Apple MacBooks produced after November 2006 are eligible for conversion into Axiotron Modbooks.

Pre-orders for Axiotron Modservice begin October 28, 2008, starting at just $1,299.

"Our Axiotron Modservice offers a way for customers to get a Modbook at a much lower price point," said Mr. Haas. "Apple customers who purchase a new aluminum MacBook will now have a use for their previous MacBook -- they can turn it into an Axiotron Modbook through our Modservice."

Axiotron also today announced that the manufacturer's suggested retail price of a new Axiotron Modbook (based on the 13.3-inch white Apple MacBook base system) will be reduced to $2,199 beginning immediately. For more information on the status of existing Modbook orders, customers should contact their Axiotron Authorized System Manufacturer.
