More convertible tablets reach our shores

After reading a HWZ forum thread that mentioned the local availability of the HP TM2, I visited the Challenger store at Funan to take a look. The model on display was TM2-1011TX, meaning a 1.3GHz SU7300 CPU & a 512MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4550 graphics chip. Current price is S$1,599.

But I was surprised to see the Asus T101MT at AAAs & South-Asia Computer (selling for S$798). I noticed the battery was located in front, below the keyboard. I suspect this will preclude a larger capacity battery. The screen was not too glossy (nice), and the chiclet keyboard made it look modern and sleek.

But I'm still a bit concerned about its puny N450 CPU...
