I have enjoyed my Asus T91. At first when the reviews started coming out about this product, I was a little skeptical about my purchase. I bought this product the morning before all the reviews were released. Once I started seeing all the sub par reviews i started having seconds thoughts. I thought If I don't like it I'll exchange it or I'll resell on Ebay. I had to remember what I was getting this device for. I did not buy this for gaming or to do massive work projects or anything of that matter. If you are considering this or you review this product because of that factor then you wasted your money. This is a quick and easy product to pick up and use at any time. I surf the web, play small lil web games, and view movie clips online with this. I will use this to sum degree with my job because of the touch screen features, but I had to remember which most of the reviewers failed to do when I read the media reviews. Give examples on what net-books are for, which by now we should already know. Instead I think many people reviewed this as if you were using this to do all of your work( NOT ENTIRELY). Yes, the slower atom processor is disappointing but it goes back to your not running battlefield on this device. Like any device, there will be sluggish periods when loading things. I own a Desktop, and that is where I do majority of my work. I bought this with NET usage in mind. The touch screen is good, and the touch screen suite that was offered with this product is good but not great. The people that see this product when I show them. LOVE IT!! Its something new and something innovative. It is small but that's what I wanted. Once again if I wanted power and a bigger screen. I would use my desktop.

Battery- 5 Hours depending on what your doing.

I was initially a bit weary about purchasing a tablet this size and at this price with XP but I decided to take a chance. The 1st time I used the T91 I was very pleased with the responsiveness and accuracy of the touch screen. The unit is quite light and very useful in portrait mode. Before I list the pro's and cons I will say that the only way you will get any enjoyment out of this machine is by loading windows 7 or xp tablet edition. The touchgate software provided is pretty useless, no support for inking in MS office, no journalling software, difficult device drivers and alot of lag in XP. I was pretty disappointed at this point with xp but after I booted windows 7 professional it all changed for me. Inking support and no lag at all. The unit actually runs a whole lot quicker with windows 7 loaded. The ink input and on screen keyboard (even at logon) is priceless. In the preloaded xp its very difficult to navigate using the stylus alone. Battery life is at least 4 hours which is really useful, sometimes even 5. I cant think of any cons, my only recommendation is maybe if you need a little extra speed go for the 2gb dimm, but even without it its quite snappy with win 7. The T91MT is a better choice with win 7 already preloaded. The size and weight are also fantastic, perfect size for your palm and very readable especially in portrait mode. You might have some software niggles but the asus forums are quite useful as no doubt someone has had the same issue before you. Two thumbs up!

I ordered the T91 the day it came available, and got it the next day ( 07/16/09 )via Amazon.

I went in understanding that this was a tiny machine, even by netbook standards, but the biggest problem for me is the OS. Now that I have used it for a day I wish I had waited for the Windows 7 version, or even Win XP tablet edition.

This machine comes with basic win XP, and that makes it somewhat hard to use in tablet form, due to the small screen size and relatively slow processor. Accurate finger tapping on a tiny screen like is sketchy at best in XP mode, although ASUS has its own GUI with a few icons that are not that useful.

Notepad has some potential, but trying to rest your hand on the screen when writing will leave marks on your notes.

The machine itself is very well made and pretty robust, with a solid pivot for the screen and lot of ports for whatever you need to plug in. The only complaint I have about the hardware itself is the screen - even at full brightness it's still a little dim as compared to other netbooks.

Price is also a weak point; you can buy a faster machine with more storage out there for a lot less without the touch screen.

Overall, this netbook has some potential, but as it stands, I think should have waited for Version 2 with a better OS.

This is a great little PC. I use it for taking notes in class and just general computing and internet access. I have installed a full install of MS Office on it, as well as a number of other programs including Firefox 3.5, IrfanView, VLC, and other open source software. The touch features are decent, and the screen is very accurate. I haven't had to recalibrate it since purchase a few weeks ago.

I also like the flip feature to turn it in true a true tablet. I really like the button that allows you to turn the screen orientation. To help with text entry while I'm in tablet mode, I put the windows onscreen keyboard in the quick start menu.

The only drawback with this computer is the lag. Even during the typing of this review, it has lagged once or twice. I'll type and it will back up a little bit and then spit out all of the letters at once. I tolerate this just fine, because the computer is otherwise perfect for my uses. I also find issues with playing youtube videos, where it takes a while for the video to buffer in the computer so that the video doesn't jump. This is not an internet connection issue, but a computer issue.

One myth I would like to dispell - the keyboard is quite typable. I use the keyboard for taking notes in class, and can touch type very easily. It took a little bit to get used to the tab, caps lock, and backspace keys, but other than that, it's wonderful and easy to type on at full speed.

I purchased the package with the 2gb ram upgrade and the external optical drive, which in my opinion was worth it. The whole package was under 600 bucks from amazon - the other dealers sometimes price the computer itself at 600. Order from amazon, even if they're out of stock. They'll send you one when they get it in.
