Have owned several notebooks and netbooks before, and so I really knew what I wanted this time around. I wanted something portable, not too heavy, with long battery life, and easy to carry in one hand and work with one handed. I occasionally ride on the bus (public transportation for the win), and there isn't always a seat. This netbook has a touchscreen that swivels and folds back over the keyboard, and the 6 cell battery that gives it a good 5 hours life in my usage is shaped so that it makes a nice handle when you're using it in "slate" mode. I upgraded it to 2 gigs of RAM and replaced the internal HD with a fast SSD drive, and the machine outperforms even some of my fullsize notebooks. The 768 of vertical resolution is also a major plus since so many sites are optimized for 1024x768 - with my old Asus (like most netbooks it was limited to a vertical resolution of 600) this meant a lot of scrolling.

If you're thinking about a notebook or netbook, you can't do wrong by getting this one!

Saw the Asus T91 in Spain about three months ago and became enthralled with the concept of a tablet netbook... I almost bought the T91 from [...] a month ago but I did my research.

I liked the small factor form of the 8.9" T91, but was worried about reviews that it was very slow due to the less capable Atom Z CPU it ships with. Therefore I pleaded with my wife to let me splurge US$200 more for the bigger, faster and I think better Gigabyte T1028.

Was it worth begging my wife for the extra US$200, I believe so!!!

As a netbook the T1028 is very expensive, priced on par with low end Core Duo laptops, and I am sure that tomorrow (i.e. Black Friday) a lucky few will even be able to buy a very decent and capable full fledge laptop with the US$615 it cost me from But I needed a small form and light portable computer capable of doing the basic computer needs that I could take with me on business trips, like check webmail, chat, surf the internet, watch clips, etc.

Based on these requirements alone, the T1028 performs very well (I own a Sony FW373 laptop with 4GB of RAM and a Core 2 Duo P8600, and truthfully right now the T1028 loads up faster and even though the Sony is faster doing those everyday functions, I cannot see a huge amount of difference between the response time between the two). Compared to netbooks, I borrowed from my brother an Acer One with the same Atom CPU and RAM, but for some reason the T1028 runs much faster.

As a tablet the T1028 is just what I needed, lighter than the HP tablets, and about US$200 cheaper also. More capable than the so call "Ultra Mobile Personal Computers" or UMPCs from Samsung, Sony, Motion Computing, etc. and very well about half what those UMPCs cost, even used ones.

The follow-up to Gigabyte's M912, the T1028 series improves upon the platform in almost every conceivable fashion. While it all starts with a larger footprint, the extra real-estate means a better keyboard on the T1028--a previous limitation of the M912. A bigger screen also accompanies the larger design and with 1366 x 768 resolution available, everything is as crisp and clear as you'd expect. Response and accuracy on the touch panel are significantly improved out-of-the-box, but also compatible with TabCal from Win Tablet 2005 or Win 7 once you get going with the stylus.

The multi-touch mouse pad is a nice touch. A bit too-touchy at times (zoom can be crippling and incorrectly interpreted for scroll at times...) The speakers are great for such a small footprint and at 1366 x 768 work well in a motel room. Webcam is optional and the boost in resolution (1.3 MP) has been something my video contacts have both commented on and appreciated.

Built-in array of BT, HSDPA & Wireless options offer a myriad of choices for connectivity.

Overall construction is an improvement over the M912 in every way. The copper poly-shell was eye-catching enough to help me add this to 'my cart' and the single poly-chrome hinge may seem to little for the job, but once you pivot the screen for the first time--you see just how much extra effort Gigabyte put into properly supporting this joint and its maintaining it feature set throughout the life of the product. The limit to 2GB ram seems limiting, but does not drag on an OS I've tried yet. Easy to access HD and Memory bays make upgrading and or swapping-out a breeze.

Overall there is simply no better touch-screen, tablet-convertible, net-book notebook on the market IMHO.

Those looking for a netbook tablet these days have very limited choices: basically, Asus and Gigabyte are the main ones I considered.

Having already owned another netbook, I knew that my uses were quire specific: browsing the web, typing emails, typing a few documents in word, and reading ebooks. I wanted a tablet specifically so that I could read ebooks in pdf format, having considered (and ultimately discarded) the Kindle DX as an option.

What I did not want was a full blown, video processing, photo editing, power hungry machine. For that I have a Quad-core desktop with 26" screen. I wanted something portable, as a secondary machine for leisure. And as such, the T1028 excells!

I chose the Gigabyte because of the sturdy design, and larger 10inchscreen with wider resolution (1366x768) on X and G models, specifically because of my ebook-reading requirement. I went with the T1028G model, which allows me to access a 3G network for wireless connectivity, when needed. However, the T1028X is very similar, only lacking the 3G module which can be added separately.

So far it has been an excellent product. As other reviewers have commented, the wider resolution of the display means that I don't have to scroll when viewing websites. As an typing device for emails and word documents, the keyboard is very comfortable.

More importantly for me, because of its sturdy swivel mechanism, I enjoy using it as an ebook reading device in tablet mode. Pdf's of course load up as they should, with full rendering of text and graphics, contrary to the Kindle DX which has issues if the pdf is too large or too complicated with multi-columns. As I have an extensive library of pdf's, this is one of my main uses and so far it has been a pleasant experience.
