Asus EEE PC T91 Tablet PC To Cost £449

Asus has confirmed that the tablet version of the EEE PC, the T91, will arrive in the UK at the end of May or at the beginning of June with a suggested retail price of £449.

The T91, which we exclusively announced at the beginning of March 2009, won second place at the CeBIT-Preview awards, behind the Asus's EEE PC keyboard.

That said, Handtec is selling the T91 for a rather staggering £904 - that's more than twice the SRP. Handtec also confirms that the tablet PC will come with an Atom CPU, probably a Z520 model (with Intel Virtualisation Technology and Sidestep), 1GB memory and 32GB SSD storage. The 8.9-inch touchscreen (displaying 1024x600 pixels) can rotate which makes it well suited for group presentations as well.

Amongst other confirmed features are the presence of a TV and FM tuner, a GPS (turning this tablet PC into a giant Satnav), Bluetooth, WiFi and HSUPA connectivity. Asus has also plans for a bigger 10-inch touchscreen called the T101H.

Our Comments

There is already another tablet PC on the market, the CTL 2Go convertible classmate model which, at $499, is substantially cheaper than the T91 and appears to be much more rugged with a drop and spill resistant construction. Still, we would definitely go for a T91 instead because it is so incredibly sexy.
