ASUS Lamborghini notebook
ASUS has partnered with Lamborghini to produce the VX1-5E004P, a new notebook in its series modelled after the latter company's exotic sport cars. An angular frame bears a bright yellow color and the famous Lamborghini badging. Inside, the computer runs a 2GHz Core Duo processor and has 2GB of RAM, expandable to four. The videocard is a GeForce Go 7400 VX with 128MB of RAM. Inputs on the system include IR, Ethernet, four USB 2.0 ports, two FireWire ports, and built-in Bluetooth and 802.11a/b/g wireless. As opposed to some competing "luxury" notebooks, the VX1's screen is 4:3 instead of widescreen, but it is 15.4 inches and can handle SXGA resolution (up to 1280x768). The laptop can be found for as little as $2,800 at TigerDirect. Ferrari fans may want to consider Acer's recent notebooks.
