The new ModBook is based on a MacBook and features a range of enhancements including full Bluetooth connectivity, lightweight, scratch-resistant exterior, an upgraded drawing surface and AnyView LCD/ForceGlass screen cover which has a better contrast ratio than the first model, plus a firmer drawing surface.

There’s also GPS, better pen tablet performance, and new software including Autodesk SketchBook Express.

“We have listened carefully to the feedback and insights of our customers,” said Axiotron CEO Andreas E. Haas. “This customer-centric approach focuses our team on the most useful innovations, not only for the Modbook but in developing future products and product modifications.”

Pricing starts at $1,299.
