Asus Lamborghini Notebook

Acer has had a monopoly on equating performance cars with laptops to date through its Ferrari line, but it will soon have a rival in the form of Taiwanese manufacturer ASUS. The latter is set to officially launch the Lamborghini VX1 on August 18th at the most appropriate venue possible: the Concorso Italiano, a car exhibition that celebrates Italian exotics in California. The design is notable for more than just the option of an attention-getting yellow shell: though ASUS' claims of "top performance" are stretched, the VX1 is a good blend between size and speed. It uses a 2 GHz Core Duo and a unique version of nVidia's GeForce Go 7400 video chip, the VX Special Edition. The addition of 2 GB of RAM and a 160 GB hard drive as standard also mean that a trip to the store for memory upgrades won't be necessary. Lastly, ASUS clearly wanted to buck the trend of widescreen notebooks by shipping a 15-inch, 1400x1050 screen with a 4:3 ratio. Pricing is set at a relatively high $2799, though it could be a trivial price for anyone who dreams of a Gallardo in their garage.
