Eee PC T91
The Eee PC T91 and T101H are the latest models of Eee PC to become available to consumers. These touch tablets are efficient, stylish and portable for consumers to complete tasks on-the-go.
Being the first multi-media center enabled by ultra wideband HDMI, the Eee Keyboard is not only a fully-functional PC; it also serves as a hub that wirelessly connects all multimedia devices to utilize any monitor or TV as a viewing platform.
Built on the concept of “Touch to communicate”, the Eee Top’s unique interface provides its users with a brand new computing experience founded on the Eee DNA. Not just easy to navigate for users of all demographics, it is also a valuable tool for collaborative learning.
Shih also emphasizes ASUS’ commitment to “shared computing” by introducing a concept model which allows notebook users to share their work by folding and unfolding computer screens.
ASUS is projecting to ship 7 million Eee PCs by the end of 2009 and WiMax embedded Eee PCs are to become available in North American by the end of Q1 2009.
