ASUS Eee PC T91 on sale in US: $499 and in-stock [Updated]

Jul 9, 2009

We've been waiting some time for the ASUS Eee PC T91 to arrive in the US, and according to online retailer BuyDig that wait is over.  They're listing the 8.9-inch touchscreen convertible netbook in-stock for $499, complete with free shipping and Windows XP.

Update: BuyDig have changed their listing from the screenshot below to "no stock yet - accepting pre-orders".  No word on when stock is expected [Thanks Imarie!]

The specific model on offer appears to be the basic single-touch T91, going by the confirmed UK specifications we saw earlier this week, with an Intel Atom Z520 1.33GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB SSD (and a 16GB SD card) and 1024 x 600 resistive touchscreen.  Wireless connectivity includes WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, but no integrated 3G.

Still, even without the multitouch of the T91A or the 3G/GPS/TV-tuner of the T91GO, the twisty touchscreen tablet is still appealing.  Anybody going to take the plunge?
