Asus Eee PC T91 Review, Size Comparison

Laptop Magazine posted its review of the $499.99 Asus Eee PC T91 Tablet Netbook. The review only gave it 2.5 stars out of five:

This tablet netbook sets itself apart with an attractive touch interface, but it’s held back by slow performance, a small hard drive, and cramped keyboard.

The T91 uses the Atom Z520 CPU, widely considered to have better battery life, but at the cost of inferior performance to the N270/N280.

If you are curious how the T91 compares with other netbooks in size, Liliputing posted a nice series of photos of the T91 alongside with the Eee PC 1000H and the Lenovo S10.

Four-Way Ultimate Netbook Fighting Challenge!

Techradar’s got a long comparison of the Asus Eee PC 901, Acer Aspire One, HP Mini-Note, and MSI Wind, evaluating each model on a scale of 1 to 10 in important things such as battery life, screen, and performance.

Final verdict? It ranks the four in this order:

  1. MSI Wind: “combination of large hard drive and familiar OS makes for a well-rounded experience”
  2. Acer Aspire One: “only Acer seems to be focusing correctly right now, and it manages this while producing a well rounded machine”
  3. Asus Eee PC 901: “it just doesn’t capture the magic of the original, or do enough to warrant the high price tag. It works well though, and the expertise of the existing user base is reassuring”
  4. HP Mini-Note: “The main problems we have with this machine are the relatively high price, and the choice of processor”

MSI Wind vs Eee PC 1000H

To tide over those waiting on the MSI Wind, Laptopmag has a comparison article of the Eee PC 1000H (H being the hard drive version of course) vs the Wind. In the four criteria discussed, the Eee PC was judged to have better display and sound capabilities but the Wind had better keyboard/touchpad and general performance. Design was rated a toss-up as a matter of personal preference, which seems reasonable. Ultimately, with the $150 price difference, the article gives the Wind the overall edge in both features and value.

Trying Out The Wind In Shanghai

User hamshu on the MSIWind.net forums posts the tale of how he got a hands-on with the MSI Wind at a mall in Shanghai, although he had to push his way past an elderly man and a small child to get at it! (Hopefully he was just kidding.) Anyways, he also got to play Warcraft III on the Wind against the store clerk. Some of his observations:

  • It’s really glossy, so will attract fingerprints.
  • Noticeably warm but not uncomfortably so.
  • Was able to view YouTube video in Firefox with WC3 running in the background.
  • Box comes with 3 CDs: System Restore, BIOS, Drivers/Manual.
