The world's first convertible netbook-tablet for Windows 7 has arrived stateside. The specs for the ASUS EEE T91mt are pretty similar to the regular ol' T91, though it does ship with Windows 7 Home Premium and the hard drive is twice as large.
This is an exciting development because we've been waiting for a convertible like this one to take full advantage of Windows 7's advanced touchscreen capabilities. As we previously discussed, touchscreens are all nice and fine, but will end up a novelty on desktop computers--arm strain is an issue, and mouses are easier to use anyway. But a tiny machine like the TC91mt eliminates the strain problem (just lay it flat!) and the touchscreen capabilities could prove to be very useful for, say, students who use it to hand-write class notes with a stylus.
In any case, the T91mt features an 8.9-inch multi-touch swivel display, 1.33GhZ Intel Atom Z520 processor, 1GB RAM, 32SSD, and a 5-hour battery life.
