That was quick, the Asus Eee PC T91MT (‘multi-touch’) convertible netbook only appeared on US pre-order at the beginning of the month and it is now shipping. The white model (T91MT-PU17-WT) is currently in stock at Amazon.com for $532 including delivery, I couldn’t find any sign of the black model.
The specifications of the 8.9-inch T91MT are similar to the T91, coming with a 1.33GHz Z520 Atom processor, 1GB RAM and an upgraded 32GB SSD. It also comes with Windows 7 Home Premium, which fully supports multi-touch features. Battery life should be good for 5 hours.
Whilst there’s still no sign of the T91MT making an appearance in the UK right now, the budget Eee PC 1001HA is now shipping via Amazon.co.uk. Both black and white models are available for £199.99. The 1001HA has a 10.1-inch (1024 x 600) display, 1.6GHz N270 Atom processor, 1GB RAM and 160GB HDD. It only comes with a 3-cell battery and features Windows XP rather than Windows 7.
