Summary: In many ways the Eee PC T91 is one of the sexiest netbooks to hit the market to date. It’s thin, light, and has a feature that few competitors can boast: a touchscreen and tablet mode. The netbook is primarily being targeted at business and educational markets at launch, which means it will go head to head with the CTL 2Go PC convertible tablet I
reviewed earlier this year
, as well as other netbooks based on the Intel Classmate PC reference design.
Summary: We give credit to ASUS for innovating; the touch features on the ASUS Eee PC T91 definitely break the netbook mold. However, its underpowered processor results in an underwhelming experience; screens take too long to open, and the lack of palm rejection is frustrating. Also, at $499, the Eee PC T91 is $100 more expensive than other netbooks that, while lacking a touchscreen, have larger 10-inch displays, and have batteries that last twice as long.
Summary: Tablet PCs came out of the closet in record numbers at the recently concluded CES 2010, but Asus had one out for a while. The Asus Eee PC T91 doubles up as a netbook and low-cost tablet PC with touch input support on its 9-inch screen.
Excerpt: The T91 is a small tablet netbook with an 8.9in screen that swivels through 180 degrees and folds back to cover the keyboard. The screen has a thinner bezel than most 8.9in netbooks, making the T91 even smaller, and at less than a kilogram, it's amazingly light and portable. The touch-sensitive screen is of the resistive type, which means it senses pressure rather than just touch.
