ASUS Eee PC T91MT multitouch netbook gets reviewed

ASUS' Eee PC T91MT multitouch-capable convertible touchscreen netbook may only just be available in the US, but that hasn't stopped MyT91's Kubel from scripting up a full review of the finger-friendly device.  According to his report, the T91MT not only has a great keyboard but a reasonably effective touchscreen; it can only recognize two points of contact and has neither palm-rejection nor pressure-sensitivity, but it still manages to offer more touch-control than previous versions of the T91.

Elsewhere the T91MT is reasonably cool-running, despite the absence of a fan, and that hardware decision by ASUS also makes it quiet in operation.  Runtimes from the non-user-accessible battery amounted to 5hrs 10 minutes in power saving "hybrid" mode, while more regular usage found 4+ hours a typical time.

Unfortunately the Intel Atom Z520 processor does the T91MT few favors, but the GMA 500 graphics do at least support hardware HD video decoding.  Don't expect multimedia crunching, but for playback it should suffice.  The ASUS Eee PC T91MT is available now, priced at around $523.
