We are currently evaluating the Asus VX1 Lamborghini laptop in our labs. Though we are still about 1 week away from concluding our testing, that doesn't mean we can't share with you the big feature of the VX1 laptop -- its great exterior design. So consider this a photo preview of our upcoming review of this laptop.

As you can see from the above specs summary, the VX1 is not the top-most end in laptop technology, but it does have speed and capability where it counts namely the T7400 Core2Duo CPU. The model we have configured has 2GB of RAM in dual-channel mode. The GeForce Go 7400 and the 5400 RPM U-ATA/100 hard disk aren't the top-end parts you can find on the market today, but it should suffice for everyday usage.


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


I hope you enjoyed these photos of the Asus-Lamborghini VX1. We will have our review online shortly with all the details and observations you've come to expect from us.


Please DIGG this article if you think this notebook is worthy of sharing!


In the meantime, feel free to browse around Pricegrabber and find a competing product, though I have yet to see a laptop that matches the VX1 in aesthetics.
