Asus' T91 tablet-cum-notebook

The eye-catching T91 first turned heads back in January at CES, but Asus has left it until now to confirm that the machine will be available from “early July” at a cost of around £450 ($740/€527).

Central to the T91’s allure is its 8.9in swivelling display, which means you can also use the machine as a regular netbook. Under its lid you’ll find a 1.33GHz Intel Z520 Atom CPU, Intel US15W chipset and 1GB of DDR 2 memory.

Buyers will have access to 36GB of storage on the T91, Asus claimed. But it has craftily carved that up between the on-board 16GB SSD and 20GB capacity at the firm’s online storage centre, Eee storage. Some models may also come with a 30GB external HDD and you can add SDHC cards of up to 16GB capacity.

Speaking of memory cards, the T91 features a three-in-one reader. You’ll also get two USB 2.0 ports on the machine.

The T91 has a 0.3Mp webcam built into its lid. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11n are both supported, Asus said.

You’ll be able to choose between a white or black body for the T91, but both colour options come with Windows XP Home pre-installed. ®
