Taipei, Taiwan, November 27, 2009 – ASUS has launched the Eee PC T91MT, which claims to be the world’s first convertible tablet netbook to feature a multi-touch screen that supports Windows 7 Multi-Touch gestures. Designed for students and professionals, the slim and light Eee PC T91MT reproduces handwriting beautifully and allows users to perform tasks fluidly and intuitively with just their fingers. Designed for mobility, the Eee PC T91MT sports a shockproof 32GB Solid State Drive (SSD) and comes with an additional 500GB of online ASUS WebStorage.

Great for Casual, Creative and Collaborative Uses
The Eee PC T91MT functions as a great e-reader, allowing users to read documents and books comfortably anywhere. In netbook mode, the Eee PC T91MT serves as an invaluable tool for discussions, as the screen can be swiveled to accommodate multiple users, as well as accept concurrent touch input from more than one source. With the Eee PC T91MT’s multi-touch capabilities, free-flowing interaction between participants is now possible.

Puts Users in Touch with their Creative Sides
With its support for Windows 7 Multi-Touch gestures, virtually every task can be performed with a tap, drag, pinch or flick. Adding to the fun is a suite of touch-optimized applications known as TouchSuite. TouchSuite allows users to perform a myriad of tasks with their fingertips, including editing photos with FotoFun, taking notes with NotePad and scribbling handwritten reminders with Memos.

A Smooth Writing Experience
Equipped with a 256-level pressure sensor, the Eee PC T91MT’s crisp and responsive 8.9-inch multi-touch screen reproduces handwriting beautifully and accurately, regardless of whether a finger or the bundled ergonomically-designed stylus is used.

Made for Mobility
Built to withstand the rigors of day-to-day use, it is equipped with a shockproof 32GB SSD that prevents data loss in the event of accidental drops and shocks. It also comes with an extra 500GB of online ASUS WebStorage** which allows users to access, share and back up their files and media no matter where they are, through an easy-to-use drag-and-drop web-based interface.
