Brad first reviewed Gigabyte’s 10″ convertible back in August. At that time one of his complaints was about the screen, which he said looked a bit “milky.” Several Liliputing readers pointed out that the issue might have a lot to do with the fact that the Touchnote shipped with Windows XP Home.

Now, however, the T1028X has received an important update which makes it an even more interesting option for those of you looking for a touchscreen convertible netbook.

Amazon is now selling the Gigabyte TouchNote for $668, and it comes with Windows 7. The SATA hard drive has also been bumped up to 250GB, though the rest of the internals remain the same (Atom N280, 1GB DDR2 memory, 6-cell battery).

The Amazon price tag makes the T1028X a tempting buy for me. Windows 7 and a touchscreen for less than $700? Sign me up!

Need a 3G capable version? There’s also a second config with an integrated 3G module selling for $788.

  1. How is the writing experience? I want a touchscreen and need to take notes and write work etimates.

  2. Yes but the T91MT has a slow processor, way smaller keyboard, lower battery life, unremovable battery, lower screen resolution and a smaller hard drive without the benefit of fast boot times…Not saying it’s worse, because it’s design is just miles ahead of the t1028, but it’s still a close call.

  3. The ASUS T91MT is a touchscreen and Windows 7 for less than $700. The specs are a bit lower, but so is the price. AND it’s multi-touch.
