    I am looking for netvertibles similar to ASUS T101MT with a capacitive touchscreen and capability to run youtube videos, and I don't know which new tablets are coming out since everyone is advertising their own ipad clones.

    can someone list the new convertibles coming to the market soon? or are the tablets done for 2011 already?

    btw, my budget is around 500~600

    1. What resolution do you prefer?

    none specific, this is mostly used for ebook reading

    2. Do you require the screen to be readable in sunlight?
    See the above linked FAQ for guidance

    would be great if possible, but not required

    3. Do you prefer your display to be glossy or matte?

    matte

    4. Do you require Touch? (without pressure sensitivity) (Which one: resistive or capacitive)

    capacitive is preferred, but not required

    5. Do you require a Pen? (with pressure sensitivity) (Which one: Wacom or N-Trig)
    See the above linked FAQ for guidance

    not required

    Component Specifics

    1. What size Hard Drive and Memory do you require?

    around 200 gb and 1~2 gb ram

    2. Do you require an Optical (CD/DVD) Drive to be built in?

    no

    3. Do you require ability to add a second Battery or Hard Drive (Modular Bay technology)?

    no

    Misc
    1. Other non specific items ~ please add other items you require not covered above?

    looking for 9~11 inch screen, fairly light weight with 6~8 hours battery life.

    2. Additional requests ~ anything other you wish to take into consideration?

    I forgot to mention my budget is around 500 ~ 600, I checked the price of t1005m and it's around 900, way beyond my wallet can handle.

    Sorry I missed your first line in the OP....capacitive multitouch for $600 is going to be hard to find. In your price range they seem to use resistive touch screens. Now these offer the ability to use a stylus for better inking....

    I'm not a big fan of Apple, but if Capacitive and all you are wanting to do is consume, at your price constraint, you may want to look at the lowend Ipad...

    I end up getting that asus t101mt because it's the cheapest one I can find in the market at the moment.

    The Lenovo S10-3t was under $500 at Frys. It's Atom with cap multi touch.

    I second the motion. It's no powerhouse, but for your budget and assumption that it will be an Atom based product, the S-10 will be the most versatile for the money.
