Asus Eee PC T101MT

Well looks like finally Asus Eee PC is going to be releasing the much awaited T101MT. This was shown at CES 2009 along with the T91. Then all year went by and no signs of the T101MT at all. At CES2010 the Asus Eee T101MT made a appearance again and now Asus is saying that it will be available next month for $499. The price is nice but compare it to the Lenovo S10-3t, you'll get more for your money with the S10-3t. From the specs that is available, this is what you'll get for your $499.

  • 10.1 1024 x 600 capacitive screen

  • 1GB RAM

  • 160GB Hard drive (S10-3t gets you 250GB)

  • Windows 7 Starter Edition

  • 1.66GHz Atom N450 Processor

  • GMA 3150

  • 802.11b/g/n

  • Bluetooth

  • 0.3 webcam

  • 3 USB ports

  • SDHC Card Reader

  • VGA, Mic, Headphone Jacks

  • 6.5 hours of battery life

You can always configure a higher end model that has more options like bigger hard drive, more RAM, Windows 7 Home Premium, etc... but will cost you more money. The keyboard on the T101MT seems to be very good, all though the 3t to me is good as can get for a netbook. I usually use a netbook through out the day and can get by with the smaller keyboards, because usually your only typing for short periods at a time. So for now we will have to wait and see next month if indeed it will be released.
