Asus UK delays Eee PC T91 launch to late August; pre-order prices drop

July 31, 2009 at 11:43 am

Asus Eee PC T91Update: Good news. We have just received direct word from Asus that the Eee PC T91’s have now arrived in distribution and will hit the UK etailers mentioned below next week. Thankfully no wait until the end of August then!

The Asus Eee PC T91 convertible netbook has suffered a number of delays in the UK. It was originally scheduled to be released in late May/early June, it then got put back to “early July” and then “late July”. We now have word from Asus, that the Eee PC T91 will “be available by end of August”.

At the recent Asus press conference, we were assured by company reps that it would definitely hit that “late July” deadline, but it looks like its hit a snag somewhere, prompting another delay. At the time, the delays were explained by trying to get the software just right.

Whilst this is disappointing news, you may be happy to know that the pre-order price of the 8.9-inch Eee PC has dropped to £409.00 from Amazon. It was priced at £449.00 just earlier this month. Laptops Direct also has the T91 on pre-order, for £429.97. Ebuyer is also set to get in on the pre-order action soon.

    Shame this has been delayed, but at least, as you say, the price coming down slightly, is excellent news.

    It’s shipping in America, it’s launched in Australia. Unless the software doesn’t run with UK settings, what can be the problem? One thing we do know that isn’t ready – Windows 7. That’s close enough that many customers will wait for that anyway – with proper touch functions, if everyone plays their part. Another thought is that maybe they’re having trouble making the things and having everything on them work.

    The earlier price was ridiculous. If it goes for US$499 (around £305), £450 is gouging, even with tax included. A Google advert thinks it’s £499. Some Americans think $499 is overpriced, although that doesn’t mean much. They can spend that much in a restaurant (in return they do get a toy). Price quoted in Australia is Au$999, = £500. What you really pay, we’ll find out.

    But meanwhile we read rumours that Intel will discontinue Atom Z microprocessors, or has done, like the one inside the T91. Instead you’d have to use the Atom N, and apparently that means you also are not allowed to vary your computer design from Just Another Laptop. Between that and Microsoft’s rules on what operating system you’re allowed to use on various computer screen sizes (has someone been pulling my leg??), 2009 may be the last year you have any meaningful choices in personal computing. Apple? Relies on Intel. Linux? Free, but you still need a microprocessor.

    Apparently there are about five computers of an outward-similar design to T91 in a UK warehouse at what may be end-of-line discount, I’ll try to get me one of those. Sure you’d like to know where. Not this link, this link is the no-more-funky-netbooks story.

    the price is 409 because amazon doesnt even have it in stock and you have to wait 1-2 months for it to even be shipped…nice research there…

    Few things going on: 1] Intel intends to replace the Atom ‘N’ series (not Z series as stated by Robert … must be a slip) 2] Chip and battery life would both need to depend on the operating system, add Windows 7 to this equation which seems apparently promising 3] This brings us to the price factor: With ION charging almost three times and Linux facing third party compatibility issues, it’ll be most probably combo of Intel + Windows once again till nVidia / Via start getting real aggressive with features and good price. Therefore, we can expect some delays from manufacturers in the coming days re: release dates. They are probably figuring out the best hardware to release which is scalable OR they got recession on their minds.

    I correct myself above – Actually both Z & N series would be phased out for Pine Trail !!
