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.
Nicole from Netbook News has posted a hands-on video with the sleek new notebook which you can check out below.
What the acer ferrari one 200 should have been!
This is retarded that they would even produce this thing! They’re charging you $700 for a netbook that is for all intents and purposes just a glorified ASUS eee pc 1215n. The 1215n literally has all of the same specifications except for a speaker on the back of the screen and a logo that says “lamborghini” on it. Why waste the money when you can pick up a 1215n for only $500??? And if you really think this computer’s worth the extra $200 bucks just for the lambo logo and extra speaker, why not just spring another $100 and go with the Alienware m11x which is the absolute most powerful netbook that has ever been made to date??!?!?! This netbook just makes no sense to me!
asus 1215n doesnt have usb 3.0 and blutooth 3.0…
Maybe they put the Eee as they are going to make it affordable too?
