Asus Unveils Lamborghini VX6 Ultra Portable Laptop

Taiwanese manufacturer Asus has pulled the wraps on the Lamborghini VX6 Ultra portable laptop, one that will be pitched in the ultra portable arena against Intel CULV-based devices.

The VX6 comes with an Atom D525 dual core processor coupled with an Nvidia Ion 2 graphics module (with 512MB VRAM and Optimus technology), 2GB RAM, 250GB HDD, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB 3.0, HDMI and Bang and Olufsen audio.

All packed in a nice looking, testosterone-inspired chassis, which also houses a 12.1-inch screen capable of displaying 1366x768 pixels.

Asus also provides with 500GB online backup via WebStorage, Windows 7 Home Premium, Asus Express Gate, one year global collect and return plus a 1.3-megapixel webcam while the battery life (running on a six cell unit) is expected to last at least six hours.

As for the price, the VX6 will sell for £499 which is rather expensive for an Atom D525-based laptop, especially one that weighs 1.5Kg. Furthermore, the VX6 is based on the EEE 1215N which can be had for around £80 less.
