Asus plans to launch its 10 inch tablet-style netbook this year. No, really. Sure, the company first showed off the Eee PC T101 at CES last January. But the device has undergone a bit of minor surgery over the past year, and the new version actually looks pretty slick.

Under the hood, the Eee PC T101MT has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N450 Pine Trail processor, and it can run Windows 7 Starter or Home Premium. The Starter version will come with 1GB of RAM, and a 160GB hard drive, while the higher end model will pack a 320GB HDD and 2GB of RAM. You also get 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, and a 35Whr battery that Asus says is good for up to 6.5 hours of run time.

The touchscreen has been bumped up to a capacitative  multitouch display. It’s similar to the screen on the smaller Eee PC T91MT which is already available. But you know, bigger. But I think the two factors that really make the T101MT more attractive than the T91MT are the larger keyboard and the use of the Atom N450 CPU instead of the sluggish Atom Z520 found in the smaller model.

You know the drill by now. More photos after the break.

  1. I am sure now! I definitely want one!

    However, the version available at qbitonline is only available in white.
    And the version on sale in Germany has a QWERTZ instead of a QWERTY keyboard.

    So I guess I’ll have to wait for a while!

  2. The T101MT is on sale now on qbitonline for about US$580. The OS is limited to Win 7 in Mandarin but its got worldwide warranty.

  3. Fudzilla mentions the OS on the exhibit model as Windows 7 Starter.. (and pictures seem to show a non-translucent taskbar which seems to back that up)

    If that’s true that would explain why you couldn’t get multi-touch to register.

    Thanks for all the cool coverage, Brad.

  4. It’s a resistive multi-touch display, that’s why it didn’t support two-finger gestures when I opened up mspaint and tried to use both fingers at the same time. Also, the picture of the specs info you took states that the device has a 1024×600 pixel resistive multi-touch display.

    Sigh..I was really looking forward to a capacitive netbook this year! :/

  5. Heh, I have been spamming google for “T101MT” the latest days and congrats for being the first to post some useful info. 🙂

    Is it just me, or does this device look thicker than the T91? It’s too bad they didn’t manage to squeeze more than 6,5 hours of batterytime out of this one… I had really, really hoped for 8+.

  6. Eee PC looks really Cool. Its Configuration is really good. I hope the Customers will definitely like this 10 inch tablet and will buy as well.

  7. In the last picture the screen is described as resistive not capacitive.

  8. The words on the oval in the last picture says the touch screen is resistive.

    1. Interesting point… I’ll have to look into that. The MT in the name usually
      signifies multitouch, but resistive screens are usually single touch.

      1. It is definitely resistive. The only way the stylus would work with a capacitive screen is with a digitizer. And the t91MT is definitely resistive multitouch with pressure sensitivity so it’s possible. I think you did an article on Stantum Slates which are resistive slates with unlimited touch points
