All in all a pretty cool box. --------------------- This is the body of an email sent to gizmodo.com for inclusion in their blog. -------------------------- Hello all: I just received a brand-new modbook and wanted to give you my impressions. I ordered a loaded machine with a 320GB hard drive and 4GB of RAM. It also came with a superdrive, isight camera and the included GPS. Overall it's very solid and looks very nice. I think the silver frame would look very nice over a black MacBook, but didn't have that option when ordering. the machine seemed a little heavy at first, but after carrying it around for a little while it feels good and has worked as advertised. If only my handwriting was better!! It comes with a keyboard app "Quickclicks", which seems to be a versions of "Touchstrokes" from assistiveware.com. I really like their keyboard program for touchscreens because it's the only one I found that had no lag, no matter what I was doing. There is also an application to calibrate the screen and gps functionality that I have not had a chance to try yet. The most annoying thing for me when using a Tablet PC and this machine is the slight offset that is always present between the cursor and the tip of the pen. My usual fix is to hide the cursor. For this purpose I installed "Cursorcerer" http://doomlaser.com/cursorcerer-hide-your-cursor-at-will/ a utility to hide the cursor and which helps greatly because it allows me to focus on the tip of the pen. The utility is not perfect, but did the trick for me. I'm going get a sleeve for it right away and should be trying a few things tonight, including installing Photoshop to see how it behaves on the system. I'll update my experience as soon as I get more time on it.
