Asus introduced its new Lamborghini VX6 notebook earlier this week. Now we have a few more details about the laptop, including a launch date and target price. Word on the street is that the laptop should be available in August for about $699. That’s pretty expensive by netbook standards, but it’s actually not ridiculous for a 12.1 inch laptop with Lamborghini branding and a few premium features including USB 3.0 and HDMI ports.
The notebook has a 12.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel HD display and a 1.83GHz dual core Intel Atom D525 processor. It appears to have 2 USB 3.0 ports as well as a single USB 2.0 port, a RAM access panel on the base of the computer, and a battery which Asus says should be good for up to 7.5 hours.
I was also a bit surprised to see Asus slap the Eee PC brand name on the Asus Lamborghini VX6 laptop, since the Eee brand is usually reserved for budget models. I suppose Asus might be extending that definition to include any machine that ships with an Intel Atom processor.
