The Asus Eee PC T91MT 8.9 inch touchscreen tablet-style netbook has been available in the US for a few months. But there’s one thing you can’t get with the US model yet — a built-in TV tuner. Peter from Netbooked picked up a Japanese model recently that comes with a 1Seg TV tuner.

For the most part, the T91MT looks just the same as the US version. It’s small, has a kind of tiny keyboard, and a touchscreen display that can be folded down over the keyboard for use in tablet mode. When I reviewed the Asus T91 last summer, I was underwhelmed with the performance of the 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z520 processor. But that model also ran Windows XP rather than Windows 7 and lacked the TV tuner.
