Asus Eee PC T91MT now on Amazon

The Asus Eee PC T91MT (T91MT-PU17-WT) is now on Amazon. This isn't just your average "Eee netbook." The T91MT is a convertible netbook / tablet PC. The "MT" stands for multi-touch. It reminds me of the Fujitsu LifeBook P1600 series (1610, 1620, 1630), but the price is substantially different. Now, you can have multi-touch and Windows 7 on a netbook for under $550.

If I were to buy a netbook today, this would be at the top of my list because I'm a tablet PC user and I've always been a fan of pen computing. I believe that future health care professionals will rely heavily on touch and pen computing. I hope that more netbook manufacturers will follow Asus and release multi-touch convertible tablet netbooks in the near future.

  1. I own this T91MT (from NewEgg), great netbook for basic web surfing and watching some videos. I wouldn't call it multitouch though as it only recognizes maximum of 2 finger points at once, I call that DUALTOUCH! I was expecting more than a dualtouch touchscreen :(

    It won't even play youtube or HULU videos (unless you download them first) that I so hoped for either (even tried on LAN connection incase WIFI was to blame, but nope). I could only upgrade the ram as high as 2GB and you cannot give more RAM to the internal video card.

    It plays most downloaded files I have (as long as you find most recent video card drivers from Intel, Asus doesn't even give you these), great for all my 720p DivX vids (1080 may not play).

    Tried Windows XP and Vista on it, Windows 7 runs best.

    I have tried some emulators of old 8bit & 16bit games (I am a fan of old games). NES & SNES works perfect. Sega Genesis and Master System roms play fine. GBA most games ran well. Majority of MAME games would play (use GlovePie and your WiiMote). A few n64 games ran ok. DosBox with games like DOOM, Blood, etc work well too. I wouldn't expect to get more gaming from this unit.
