Reviews for the Asus Lamborghini Eee PC VX6S

75% Asus VX6S Lamborghini (ORA006M) Review
Source: Tech2.in.com English
Get ready for big fat elephant in the room, the Asus VX6S will set you back a sweet Rs.38,000. This is really expensive for the average joe, but then this is not designed for the average joe. This is not to say that it's value for money or anything; it just is what it is. There's no doubt that the level of details and customizations is very well done and it certainly feels like a premium device. But leaving out the high price for a moment, it's far from perfect. If you're going to be charging a premium then I want backlit keys as well. The trackpad could have been designed better as well and the surface is not conducive for tracking. And finally the battery life is not the best, but then again you don't buy a Lamborghini for the awesome mileage, so I guess that's forgivable.

ASUS EeePC VX6S-ORA029M: Orange fury

As with all sports cars, if they’re any good, the price tag is accordingly high, and ASUS’ VX6S is no exception. For the money you have to invest in this netbook (if it falls under the netbook category at all anymore), you can buy a serious 15” model with a moderately strong configuration. On the other hand, this model isn’t supposed to sell in millions anyway. It’s a very specific concept catering to a fairly limited population (automobile industry enthusiasts), and these won’t be let down in terms of performance (we take design as a given).

AMD Radeon HD 6470M: Entry to middle class graphics card based on the Seymore XT codename featuring the UVD3 video processor.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


D2700:

Nettop/Desktop dual core Atom CPU with an integrated SGX545 PowerVR graphics card and a video decoder. Compared to the N-Series, the D-Series does not feature Speedstep.

12.1": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.5 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.
