Asus Netbook Goes Multi-Touch

Asus revealed last week its first multi-touch netbook, the Eee PC T91MT. The device offers a swivel screen that supports Microsoft's Windows 7 Multi-Touch gestures. The netbook even weighs in at a hefty 0.96kg and measures just over one inch thick, making it easy to take notes in class simply by using the touch of a few fingers.

"The Eee PC T91MT's multi-touch functionality makes interacting with the computer so intuitive and effortless, it encourages users to get creative," the company said. "With its support for Windows 7 Multi-Touch gestures, virtually every task can be performed with a tap, drag, pinch or flick."

According to the company, the netbook screams portability, featuring a shockproof 32 GB SSD (solid state drive), and an additional online storage space of 500 GB thanks to Asus. The device also sports Intel's Atom Z520 processor, up to 2 GB of DDR2 memory, optional digital TV, and a 8.9-inch glossy LED-backlit WSVGA screen (1024 x 600). The screen is even equipped with a 256-level pressure sensor.

We assume that the netbook is now available, although Asus did not provide a price point for the basic model.

    Newegg has one already for 549.99:
  • 1- too expensive
    2- too expensive,
    3- did I say too expensive already?

    Really, it's no time to be making netbooks anymore!
    Everyone is waiting for the pinetrails. I've been waiting for them since june 2008,when the first idea about an on chip CPU/GPU/bridge controller in a netbook was shared!
    And I'll continue to do so, until they are there!
