Verdict

If you’re the kind who sees yourself in a Lamborghini in real life—or, perhaps, if you actually do—go ahead and pick up this laptop. It’ll go well with the car, believe us. If you’re a lesser breed, just look at the picture alongside and drool.

ASUS Lamborghini VX1 detailed review



The Poser’s Accessory


If you’re looking to burn virtual slick rubber, the ASUS Lamborghini VX1 promises to be a treat. The sharply-contoured lid—and its exotic finish—is reminiscent of its namesake’s bonnet. Distancing itself from the AMD Turion 64 X2-based Acer Ferrari, the Lamborghini uses an Intel Core 2 Duo T7400 (2.166 GHz).

DisplayMate tests revealed a clear, crisp 15.4-inch LCD screen, as expected from such a product; unfortunately, it’s not widescreen. The 1680 x 1050 resolution means plenty of space for applications. The 140/100 degree viewing angles seem about right.

The NVIDIA GeForce Go7400 VX Turbo powers the graphics—enough muscle for most games. Two GB of 667 MHz DDR2 RAM ensures the Lamborghini doesn’t run out of torque. The 160 GB hard drive provides ample boot-space, something its namesake lacks!

The well-laid-out keys are soft and silent; response is quick. The touch-pad is small enough to be comfortable. LEDs illuminate the two buttons of the tracker pad, but unfortunately, not the pad itself. The brushed metal finish around the keyboard and mouse adds a distinct, sporty flavour.

Leaving aside the aesthetics and ergonomics, the Lamborghini is a decent performer; it encoded our test 100 MB video file in 1:36 minutes. An overall score of 6855 in PC Mark 04 indicates the power of  this laptop, which is based on Intel’s Centrino platform. It runs for around 1:40 hours on a single charge.

As you’d naturally expect, the Lamborghini is lightweight and slim—no problems carrying it around. (You’d probably want to.) The provided bag is an assorted combination of suede leather and nylon.

Right from the start, ASUS imbues the Lamborghini with looks, performance, and an attitude a mile wide… the attitude extends to the pricing, unfortunately. Like its namesake. (That’s why we said it was a poser’s accessory.)

If you’re the kind who sees yourself in a Lamborghini in real life—or, perhaps, if you actually do—go ahead and pick up this laptop. It’ll go well with the car, believe us. If you’re a lesser breed, just look at the picture alongside and drool.
