Asus Launches Eee PC T91, a Touch-Screen Tablet Netbook 205

Posted by Soulskill
from the netpad-tabbook-subswivelthing dept.
MojoKid writes "Asus today launched yet another addition to their Eee PC netbook product offering. The Eee PC T91 is unlike any Eee PC we've seen before, primarily because the screen can be spun around and flipped down in the style of a tablet. This so-called 'netvertible' sector is still in its earliest stages, making the T91 one of the first netbooks available that also doubles as a full-fledged tablet PC. Unlike the Eee PC 'Seashell' line, which is largely just a sleeker take on the tried-and-true Eee PC netbook, the T91 takes a completely different approach to computing. Its 8.9" resistive touchscreen literally puts a new spin on the netbook and enables a new usage model."

              Saying that performance per watt is the same as power efficiency is like saying that horsepower per hour per gallon is the same as miles per gallon. If that were the case, there would be no difference in gasoline efficiency between a gas electric hybrid and an equivalent standard vehicle.

      Not very well, probably. From the Wikipedia article on Intel GMA: [wikipedia.org]

      The Intel System Controller Hub US15W for the Atom processor Z5xx series features a GMA 500 graphic system. Rather than being developed in-house, this core is a PowerVR SGX core licensed from Imagination Technologies. Since PowerVR is not cooperative with the open source movement, this has resulted in the reliance of out dated closed source Linux drivers.

      I couldn't agree more. Using a trackpad is like trying to use a mouse with a broken arm swaddled in plaster. you're lucky if you can get the pointer 1/3 of the way across the screen without reseating your finger, and at higher sensitivities it's even more of a cumbersome pain to use.

In fact, it actually rivals the Thinkpad's trackpoint for ease of use, accuracy and speed... IF you spend some time learning to use it (not to mention multi-touch tapping etc.).

        If you were just willing to try something new, you might find that a halfway decent, properly set up trackpad isn't necessarily inferior to a trackpoint on any more th

Apple really has sweated the details on this one.

          Every touchpad and mouse is speed sensitive in windows - go to mouse options in the system setting and turn up the acceleration sensitivity. I haven't had to, the XP default works flawlessly with my synaptic touchpad with the generic windows drivers. (I hate the overhead the synaptic package adds)

          That's been a standard thing since Windows 95 (don't rememebr if 3.1 had this feature.) Apple didn't sweat a damned detail, they followed suit.

        Kindle's major engineering problem is the extra zero on the price tag. It's a one trick pony. Not worth it.

  • My eee pc 1000 has the perfect size keyboard for me, although the right shift button could have had better placement. So 8.9" is going to be a little too small for me. The non-removable battery is also a deal killer. My issue with my netbook is the network card isn't supported by some of the software, uh, 'tools' I use, the battery life is almost half what they say it is, and the performance could be a tiny bit faster (only issue that really bugs me is not being able to watch 720p on it). What I ultimately

      I don't understand why they make tablets with keyboards on them. ... Why they don't make the whole computer with the touchscreen on top and just a clear flip cover on it instead of the keyboard and trackpad is beyond me.

      Most people will want a separate keyboard at least some of time. What's so bad about having a keyboard built into the 'flip cover' of your touchscreen? What I want is dual touchscreens (a la Nintendo DS) so one can be a reconfigurable keyboard/input device.

  • around the time that the NEC versa laptops came out. the period was 486 dx2/66 era ;)

    their version had a TFT display that could pivot around and fold on top of the keyboard, over it, with the screen up.

    this is hardly new.

  • Gigabyte did this a year ago, with their M912. It looked like a stunning little machine, but sadly they priced it at more than double the price of the average netbook, and nowhere seemed to get any in stock.

    I'm not sure why they've included a trackpad either. Those things are horrendous to use at the best of times, now there's a touch screen there to replace it. The space could be used to include a decent sized keyboard instead.

  • Hello,

    Both Fujitsu [shopfujitsu.com] and Kohjinsha [kohjinsha.com] have been offering small (<9" screen) tablet PCs for a number of years, so I'm not sure exactly why this is considered newsworthy. Asus' contribution here seems to be in reducing the price and shipping them into the consumer channel. While it is nice to have inexpensive hardware, I would hardly qualify that as revolutionary, let alone evolutionary.

    Hi everybody. Just wanted to stop by and say you are welcome. My now obsolete Eee non-touchscreen netbook was delivered yesterday. My decision to finally purchase thus ushered in this new generation of netbook (2 days later) for you all to enjoy. I'm getting tired of waiting for Android phones too so I better go buy a G1 so that 3 new Android phones will be released the next day. Otherwise we'll just have to keep waiting indefinitely.

      So if you were to return your EEE, does that mean they'd have to recall all of these new touchscreen ones to continue their systematic campaign of mental torture against you? 'Cause that's got some serious potential for entertainment value.....

      You could have paid attention to the future product announcements... I knew the T91 was on its way when I bought my 901 in March... The reason that didn't stop me from buying the 901 is 'cause I knew the T91 would be horribly overpriced for the first six to eight months of its sale... I wanted to buy a good netbook for cheap, so I chose one of the models near the end of its sales run.

  • Should I just upgrade my 900 with a touch screen [dealextreme.com] with internal usb hub, or dump it and get this new model.. Decisions decisions...

    I'm tttotally used\tothe keyboard now.I dooooon't make too many mnistakes anymorerd.
    The keys are the same size than a regular keyboard, but there is absolutely no space between keys. This is what's messing me up.

  • I've been waiting for this to change from 'vapor' to 'solid' ever since I read about it in CES coverage in January, when it was supposed to ship 'in a month or two'. At the time, sites were saying it'd be available with a TV tuner and GPS. I see the tuner mentioned on Asus' (ridiculously crappy) site but not the GPS. Anyone know about that?

In any formula, constants (especially those obtained from handbooks) are to be treated as variables.

Working...
