The Asus Eee PC T91 convertible tablet won’t be available for a little while yet, but the company has been showing off prototypes of its first tablet-style netbook every chance it gets. Earlier this week, Sascha from Netbook News.de posted a video demonstrating the new touchscreen user interface Asus has designed for the Eee PC T91 and T101H. Now Mobile Computer Magazine has put together a detailed video showing off the laptops’ hardware.
You can find the video after the break. But here are a few of the highlights:
- The 8.9 inch netbook is thinner, lighter, and smaller than many Eee PC models, measuring just about 1 inch thick.
- The battery is not user replaceable. This probably something to do with the placement of the hinge, but it’s kind of a shame.
- There are only 2 USB ports instead of the 3 you find on most Eee PC netbooks.
- Asus has included a DVB-T tuner and SIM card slot on the prototype. It’s likely that one or both of these items will be available only as options, and not as standard features.
- There’s 1GB of RAM in a single memory slot, but it looks like this should be user upgradeable.
- The hinge is sturdy enough to hold the screen up, but the display is a bit wobbly, at least on the prototype.
- By the time the Eee PC T91 ships, it will have the new “chiclet” style keyboard with flatter keys and a repositioned right shift key.
