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.

  1. 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!
