Asus Eee PC T91 review: Asus Eee PC T91

 

We first caught sight of the Asus Eee PC T91 back at CES 2009 in January , and were immediately taken with the idea of combining a small, low-cost Netbook with a touch-screen interface. Seven months later, the final product is here, and it's largely...

Small and light; well-done custom touch-screen interface; good battery life.

Uses less powerful version of the Intel Atom CPU; not much space on the tiny SSD hard drive.

Asus does a good job combining a Netbook and a touch screen in the Eee PC T91, even if the system hits a couple of first-generation snags.

ASUS Eee PC T91 Tablet Review

 

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...

Responsive touchscreen, Attractive user interface, Compact design

Sluggish performance, No accelerometer or palm rejection, Tiny keyboard, Limited storage space, Battery not user replaceable

Review Asus Eee PC T91 MT Tablet

 

Has Asus turned the corner in tablet design? While other companie

Smart design; Inaudible at all times; Pleasantly cool when not under heavy use; Simple use of the tablet and multi-touch functionality; Good handwriting recognition and touch-sensitivity; Light and compact; Low energy consumption; Good battery life

Limited range of ports (no HDMI); Very small keys; Dim and grainy screen; Low-performance hardware; Slow working speed; Lots of pre-installed bloatware; Sound quality somewhat tinny; Small hard drive

Tablets like the Dell Latitude XT2 or the Unimall Classmate. Subnotebooks like the Acer Aspire Timeline 1810TZ, the Acer Ferrari One 200, the Acer Aspire 3810T/4810T, the Samsung X420, the Asus UL30A, the Dell Inspiron 11z, the HP Probook 5310M or the...

ASUS Eee PC T91 Review

 

The idea of a compact convertible notebook tablet might not be anything new, but ASUS found a way to create a mini tablet that sells for just $500. Since similar tablets cost at least twice the price, what makes the new ASUS Eee PC T91 so special? I...

Low-priced tablet ; Nice build quality ; Good battery life ; Slick touchscreen interface

Small screen ; Integrated battery ; Weak stylus/pen

Is the Eee PC T91 a better choice than lower-priced netbooks with bigger screens and better specs? Possibly. Is it a good tablet to buy if you just want a cheap secondary computer to carry with you for taking notes, staying connected, or sharing video,...
