Since I've started using Ipod Touch generation 1 a couple of years back, I decided the future is all about touch screen and I told myself I would only buy mobile devices that would have access to touch screen. So I was looking forward to this netbook, as it was exactly what I've been hoping for in terms of concept and design.
Initially I was disappointed with the touch features due to lack of response, but after over a week I've started to like it. Don't get me wrong, the T91MT uses a resistive screen so it is never as responsive as the IPhone Capacitive screen but once you get used to the amount of pressure you need to apply, the T91MT response pretty well to touch commands. The main culprit of lag and unresponsiveness is the low powered CPU. I've notice while it is tablet mode, the processing power is restricted to only 800mhz. You will only get the full performance of 1.33ghz in netbook mode, this may be purposely implied to lower the system temperature in tablet. The difference in performance is very noticeable while watching online videos.
Multitouch zooming is not highly inaccurate, instead of making small smooth changes; it makes leaps that zoom from 100% to 125% or 100% to 75%, depending on the program. Some program has smooth animation between zoom to give the illusion that the zoom is more fluid. The biggest problem here is still processing power. If you are running zoom while low in processing resources you will likely to make inaccurate zoom, going over the desired zoom level due to lag.
There is a official demo video floating around on YouTube of the T91MT, this is the same video that is installed onto the netbook that shows every time you startup.Read more ›
- Long live the King?
As sweet as the T91MT has been for me, I wish it also came with a GPS & 3G connectivity options. Thankfully, the playing field is changing with the coming Asus 10.1" Transformer, Motorola XOOM w/Android 3.0 OS, or the iPad2 tablets; one of which could become the next stepping stones in my electronic life. The T91MT will NOT collect dust even if I do go for any of the newer tablets because of its versatility, attached keyboard and being a Windows 7 OS.
- Memory upgrade:
Real life usage proves how valuable the upgrade to 2GB is. In many instances the 1GB is fully used, slowing down response time. With 2GB RAM not only is that not an issue, but there is now up to 762Meg dedicated to Video rendering instead of 250Meg with the 1GB. That translates into better video playback when streaming, saving the agony of waiting for the buffer to fill up. Switching from embedded video to full screen is now faster too.
If the additional weight is not an issue for you, go with the more powerful and larger 10" screen in the T101MT. The T91MT is long due for more power for sure.
- Battery life:
With battery lasting 5 hours at most, I ended up getting a second Charger to keep it running all day when I am at the office, saving the need to carry a charger around with me. They only cost 10-15 dollars and are a great investment.
After using the t91mt daily for 6 months, I still think that this is one of the best electronic products I have ever used. This is an update with some corrections and additions, including notes on Firefox, ready-boost, the iPad vs.Read more ›
Cons: non-removable battery, small keyboard
I bought this machine as an experiment, to see if I could avoid lugging my laptop around for day trips, meetings, and even around the house, for email, web-surfing, and document editing. I'm pretty pleased with it. I use gmail and a document-sharing website, so most of my environment is always available, and I can move other files with an SD card (the Asus supports two!)
Obviously, any netbook could also do the job for me, but they do not provide the T91's "tablet mode" which I find handy. I'm still experimenting with it, but a tablet seems less obtrusive being used in a meeting, more convenient when walking around or standing, and in other cases.
I bought the T91MT model, even though the multi-touch seemed of limited value to me, because I wanted the MT model's 32GB solid state disk. After 2 weeks I'm still not using the multi-touch much, and I don't even find the 32GB necessary if I uninstall software that I don't need, but I'm sure I'll expand to use the space over time. 32GB might seem really small to you, but remember, that was a reasonable hard disk size not that long ago, and the SSD is faster. If you are using more than a few gigabytes for your documents and email, you might take a look at whether you can really need all of that... of course, if you have special uses like video that's another story. Asus also provides 500GB of web space with this machine, I haven't tried using that yet.Read more ›
