Well I had my eeepc 701 for a long time [well for a laptop anyway] and I figured it was time to upgrade… and upgrade I did. I got the Asus EEEPC T91 Tablet PC. Have had it for about a month and am prepared to explain the pros and cons of this little convertible pc
First off the specs
- Intel Atom Z520(1.33GHz, 512KB L2 Cache, FSB 533MHz)
- 1 GB DDR2 SODIMM memory
- 8.9″ WSVGA (1024×600) Resistive Touch Panel, w/ LED-backlit
- Integrated Graphics Controller; Shared w/ system memory
- 16 GB SSD + 16 GB SD Card Bundle
Ok so its not a super computer but it is decent!
- Full Touch Screen
- Screen rotates for reading
- Small size
- Great battery life
- DUAL SD Card Slots
- Small keyboard
- Asus bloatware
- Not linux friendly
- Fingerprint magnate
Ok so let me explain the pros and cons… the T91 is a 8.9 inch tablet that can be used as either a netbook or a tablet.
Its small size and great battery life make it a perfect companion on long flights or car trips. The touch screen comes in handy for drawing or just playing games. Its also nice for reading e-books.
It comes paired with a 16gb SD card and 2 SD Card slots [1 free after the 16gb] Providing you with the ability of a maximum 80GB of storage space! [16gb ssd and 2x 32gb sd cards]
However it has a glossy black case that is a big fingerprint collector. I myself liked the matte black on the old eeepc but you cant win them all. The small keys take a little getting use to if you have been using a full size laptop but if you have been using a netbook you should be fine. It is also not very linux friendly due to the graphics chip but I prefer windows on a day to day basis so thats not a huge fault for me. The only major complaint I have is all the Asus Bloatware that comes bundled with it. While it is nice if you like yahoo widgets and such I just dont like it. However it is easily disabled and removed in about 30 seconds. It also ships with windows xp home. Why they did not include xp tablet I don’t know but I plan to upgrade this one anyway.
All in all this is a great little tablet for the money and hopefully I will get years of use out of it as I have my other Asus products
P.S. Sorry for the lack of updates life has taken its turns but hopefully the road is a bit straighter ahead and I will have a bit more time to do more on here!
