The touchscreen convertible Asus Eee PC T101MT netbook is now available in the US. Its is an ordinary 10.1-inch netbook, but has a display which can be rotated around and folded down onto the keyboard, to be used as a tablet. Let’s see the system specifications of the new ASUS Eee PC T101 MT, then we’ll get to the first impressions:
- 1.66 GHz Atom N450 CPU with Hyper Threading Technology
- 10.1 inch screen, 1024 x 600 (WSVGA), (Touch Screen-Multi Touch) (Multi-Touch only works with Windows 7 Home Premium or higher)
- WiFi 802.11n
- 2 GB RAM and 320 GB HDD at 5400 RPM
- 0.3 megapixel webcam
- Removable 4 cell 2400 mAh and 35 Watt battery pack
- Chiclet keyboard
- Metallic retractable magnetic stylus
- Windows® 7 Starter (32 bit)
- 3 USB ports, VGA output, Ethernet, Kensington Lock, Mic and Headphones jack and Card reader
- Hi-Definition Audio CODEC, Stereo Speakers, High Quality Mic
- Weight 1.3 Kg (2.86lbs)
Build wise it is tougher and the screen hinges also seems fine for long term use, but it is reassuring. The Chiclet keyboard isn’t that much flexible either an almost all keys are large enough for touch typing with the exception of the area with directional arrows, CTRL, SHIFT and Fn, which will be annoying.
The first thing which you will immediately realize is that where is the power button? You’ll seek it for a few seconds before finding it.
