Axiotron Modbooks get cheaper

Axiotron's Modbook has long been the only semi-official way to get an Apple tablet, with the company taking a pre-unibody MacBook and swiftly twisting it into a Wacom-enabled touchscreen slate.  While we loved our review unit, we weren't too keen on the high price; happily OWC - one of Axiotron's official distribution and conversion agents - have announced a slash of both new and conversion pricing.
