ASUS finally adds tablet functionality to the Eee PC lineup

For those of you who were hoping that ASUS would try to consolidate its Eee PC product family and make things a little bit easier to peruse, you may have to keep waiting. For those that were wishing that ASUS would add a tablet SKU to the product mix, you're in luck.

ASUS is blanketing CES with a slew of new Eee PC models and those most intriguing ones are in a Tablet PC form-factor. The Eee PC T91 is the smaller of the two Tablet PCs and features an 8.9" LED-backlit touch screen display. The Eee PC T101H ups the ante by boosting the screen size to 10.1".

ASUS was a bit light on the specifications for the notebooks, but both feature Windows XP Home SP3 and a customized ASUS interface for touch screen functionality. The Eee PC T91 measures 225mm x 164mm x 25.2 - 28.4mm and weighs 2.2 pounds. We do know that the notebook uses an Atom Z520 processor and is available with both GPS and a TV tuner. As is the case with most Eee PC models, it will be available in black and white.

Although ASUS didn't mention specifications for the T101H, one would assume that it should at least match those offered by the smaller T91.

Stay tuned for more CES coverage from DailyTech in the coming days.

glossy :(

Grah look at all the smudges and fingerprints! I will never buy a glossy laptop or netbook.

Looks like they went ever further and made a glossy screen. Cause I know I love looking at a mirror instead of whatever I'm working on. :(

my 900 is apparently the last eee I will ever own.

I never felt the same way about glossy myself. I personally keep my monitor very clean (yes its a glossy) and never take the laptop outside (only when transporting it of course) so the glare never really bothered me. I like the effect it gives on blacks but glossy deffinitally isnt for everybody. I can deffinitally see how this would be a drawback for a eepc as i would think it would be taken outside quite a bit more than a traditional laptop.

It's a bit harder to keep a touchscreen clean. My friend's iPhone is pretty nasty looking sometimes.

I've got an HTC Touch and keeping my screen clean is super easy: if it looks dirty, I just wipe it on my shirt. I've been doing that for about a year and it's still clean and has no scratches.

Even though it's not too likely, I'd like to see a dual-core Atom, 2GB, Ion, fast SSD, tablet 1280x800 all in a sub-11" form factor. I'd pay over $500 for that.

I'd prefer a faster single core over dual core. Atleast for now. I don't plan on installing Visual Studio on one of these things but I would like what ever program I am running to be snappy.

I spend a lot of time indoor at wrestling meets and this is the main reason I want an EEPC. So the glass interface won't matter much indoors. I am just hoping more schools have WiFi access this year.
