The Gigabyte T1000P is a 10.1 inch touchscreen style tablet which features a high resolution 1366 x 768 pixel touchscreen display. You can operate the T1000P either as a normal laptop, or fold the screen down over the keyboard for use in tablet mode. First introduced a couple of months ago, the Gigabyte T1000P is now available for pre-order from Amazon, but at $699 plus shipping, it ain’t exactly cheap.
The netbook features a 1.83GHz Intel Atom N470 CPU, 1GB of RAM, and a 250GB hard drive, and comes with Windows 7 Starter Edition.
Aside from the slightly faster processor and higher resolution screen, on paper the Gigabyte T1000P doesn’t look all that different from the Asus Eee PC T101MT, which sells for about $200 less. But if you’re a high-resolution display junkie, it looks like the Gigabyte model might be the best option.
The Gigabyte T1000P should start shipping on July 1st.

You don’t have to be a junkie to appreciate 1366×768 versus the puny 1280×600. Lots of office projectors require a minimum of 640 vertical to work with these netbooks, so 768 becomes desirable. That’s why I bought this netbook. I’m quite pleased with it, though I didn’t like the protruding 6 cell battery in the back. I was able to locate a 4-cell battery and I use it instead, since life is not an issue for me. Which brings up the worst feature – how hard it is to find accessories. The two types of batteries and the AC power module are VERY hard to find. I did succeed eventually.
think this model has built-in 3G. that would differentiate it from other models like T101MT or S10-3T…
