Asus Starts Shipping the Eee PC Tablet for $499

We've been talking about the EeePC T101MT for a while now. With a choice of Windows 7 Starter or Home Premium, the device features a 10.1-inch touchscreen display that swivels around to convert the netbook into a tablet.

The device packs Intel's Atom N450 CPU (1.66GHz) and and GMA 3150 graphics. There's the option for up to 2GB of DDR2, as well as a 320GB HDD, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, 3 x USB 2.0 and an SDHC card reader.

Priced at $499, the device is in a similar price range as the Windows 7 version of the HP Slate PC and Apple's iPad.

    Nice feat of engineering and because of its true keyboard probably way more useful than true tablets like the-thing-that-must-not-be-named by the company-that-must-not-be-named led by the tyrant-that-must-not-be-named.

    However, it's a bit overpriced. It's no better than a netbook and a touchscreen doesn't add enough comfort to justify its higher price tag imo.
