Netbook plus touch screen equals Eee PC T91

Conceptually similar to the recently updated Intel Classmate PC, the new Eee PC T91 has a rotating display that can be spun 180 degrees and folded down.

What could be better than a small, low-cost, easy to use Netbook laptop? How about a small, low-cost, easy to use Netbook laptop with a swiveling touch screen? Conceptually similar to the recently updated Intel Classmate PC, the new Eee PC T91 has a rotating display that can be spun 180 degrees and folded down, akin to what you'd see in something like the Lenovo X60.

Even though the system still has only an standard 9-inch display, Asus managed to stuff in a GPS antenna, a TV Tuner, and an FM Transmitter, making it a bit of an overachiever for the Netbook market.

Inside, it's still a standard configuration of the Intel Atom CPU and Windows XP. Price and availability details should be forthcoming, but Asus does say the T91 will be available in a variety of colors.
