The Asus Eee PC T91 and Intel Classmate PC 3 (aka CTL 2Go PC and other rebranded netbooks) aren’t the only touchscreen netbooks available in the US anymore. Gigabyte is bringing its TouchNote T1028 netbook to America, and you can pick it up today for $599.

That’s about $100 more than you’d pay for the other two touchscreen netbooks. But the Gigabyte TouchNote T1028 has a few things the others don’t, including a high resolution 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display and a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280 CPU. The netbook, which can be used in either tablet or clamshell mode also has 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, a 6 cell battery, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, and runs Windows XP.

The Gigabyte Booktop M1022 is also now shipping in the US. This $449 netbook has pretty standard specs including an Atom N280 CPU, 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, 6 cell battery, and Windows XP. But its one claim to fame is a docking station that lets you connect a keyboard and mouse in order to user the netbook as if it were a desktop computer.

In other news, Portable Monkey reports that Gigabyte has launched a WiMax capable version of the TouchNote in Taiwan called the TouchNote T1028X.

  1. Wonder what the battery life is like. All the older reviews had the smaller screen, 3 cell battery…

  2. Looks like the keyboard and mouse dock would make a little bit more sense with the tablet, where I presume you could swivel the device’s keyboard around behind the screen and have only one keyboard between you and the screen?
