70% ASUS Lamborghini VX1 Golden Edition Laptop
Source: Laptop Logic English
As much as I liked the ASUS Lamborghini, I was having mixed emotions with it. On one hand, it certainly looks pretty, has plenty of power and comes with some great limited edition accessories. Not to mention, you get a feeling of total exclusivity with Lamborghini’s sport scar namesake alone. However, the high price of entry for an otherwise, above-average laptop just doesn’t justify the purchase. You can find comparatively equipped laptops out there for almost half the cost of the ASUS – some even offer more features and expandability options too. Not to mention, the lack of a widescreen display certainly hurts when one has to consider a laptop costing over two grand.

69% Asus Lamborghini VX1 (yellow)
Source: CNet English
The target buyer of the Asus Lamborghini VX1 isn't exactly looking to go incognito: The laptop's bright yellow lid, with a shape evocative of a sports car's spoiler, prominently features the Automobili Lamborghini logo. And the sports-car resemblance doesn't end with appearance--the Lamborghini VX1 raced through our performance benchmarks, keeping up with laptops that incorporated higher-end components. Unfortunately, like an actual Lamborghini, the $2,799 VX1 costs quite a bit more than its competitors, including the similarly car-themed Acer Ferrari 5000 ($2,399). Laptops with no special cosmetic treatment, such as the Dell Inspiron E1505, cost even less. But if you're dead set on paying the premium for a laptop with sports-car styling, you won't get burned by the VX1.

To call the Lamborghini VX1 "expensive" would be a massive understatement – "astronomical" would better describe the premium price tag mounted on this laptop. One cannot help but expect pure perfection from such a fine machine after paying so much. Alas, Asus’ car-laptop hybrid lacks additional features found in other laptops (which are ironically cheaper) like hard drive protection, spill-proof keyboards or a one-key data backup support. On the upside, the VX1 shows excellent potential for meeting the computing needs of heavy computer users that multi-task with numerous applications. Another plus point goes to the fantastic LCD display for watching movies and the device’s excellent internal speakers.

ASUS Lamborghini VX1 - Gold Edition
Source: Hot Hardware English
As the fruit of a relationship between ASUS and exotic car manufacturer Lamborghini, the ASUS VX1 is designed to offer exceptional performance, stunning aesthetics, and solid reliability. Combining a vast array of the latest flagship mobile hardware, the VX1 is an impressive success in nearly every respect. As is the case with the supercars produced by Lamborghini, the ASUS VX1 is a piece of hardware which many will lust over. Unfortunately, the notebook also carries the same price premium as the automobile with a price tag of roughly $2799. Regardless, the system does come with an impressive list of top-notch equipment including a blisteringly fast Intel Core 2 Duo T7400 processor, 2GB of DDR2-667 memory, a spacious 160GB drive, and an 8x Dual-Layer DVD burner. In addition, the system also utilizes a 15" SXGA+ LCD which comes with a Zero Bright Dot warranty from ASUS where the company will replace the panel should a single dead pixel crop up. All of this is encased in an extremely lightweight package which is finished with a quality mirror-like paint job that is sure to attract attention.

95% Asus Lamborghini VX1 Core 2 Duo Notebook Review
Source: PC Perspective English
The Asus-Lamborghini is an excellent laptop that is extremely well engineered from a design perspective. It’s very sturdy and ridgid ensuring it can withstand the rigours of daily use. The VX1’s sharp looks and high grade paint makes the laptop truly a work of art and I think it’s worthy to bear the Lamborghini badge. The VX1 comes with a unique set of accessories including Lamborghini branded laptop case and sleeve, bluetooth mouse, and leather mouse pad. There is even a Lamborghini heritage booklet which makes you feel like you’re buying a piece of automotive history. However, the great design, desk appeal, and accessories come with a hefty price tag. The older 5E003P and 5E004P models retail for $2800 USD with a Core Duo T2500, so you can expect the 5E009P model (like the one we reviewed here today) with the Core 2 Duo T7400 to be priced higher initially.

Just like the car, the Asus Lamborghini delivers the exclusivity, performance, and high-end touches that buyers of exotic machines demand. Those thinking of buying the Asus Lamborghini VX1, get one thing straight: Like the cars that share its name, it’s not for those wishing to be inconspicuous. From its bright-yellow paint job to the suede-trimmed black carrying case included in the package, everything shouts “look at me.” And like the Lamborghini cars, the $2,799 VX1 has the performance to defend its status-symbol stance. If you had that classic poster of a Lamborghini Countach in your bedroom as a teenager in the early 1980s, you’ll lust over the VX1. The yellow-and-black machine is certainly a sight to behold, with an angular lid reminiscent of the airfoil on the deck lid of an exotic sports car, complete with the Lamborghini logo. The VX1 is large, with a 15-inch screen, but Asus has kept the weight to a reasonable 5.6 pounds.

70% Asus VX1 Lamborghini
Source: PC Mag English
The affair between luxury cars and powerful laptops began with the partnership between Acer and Enzo Ferrari that produced the Acer Ferrari 4000. Itronix, another laptop maker, made a modest attempt at emulating GM's Hummer SUV with its Hummer Laptop IX600. This year, ASUS revs its engines by introducing the ASUS VX1 Lamborghini ($2,799 list). This new partnership with Ferruccio Lamborghini adds another car emblem to a growing number of automotive-inspired mainstream laptops. One of my hands-down favorite luxury cars is a yellow Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, so it was only fitting that ASUS would send me a VX1 with a bright yellow top (it's available in solid black, too). The laptop's lid slants downward toward the front bezel just like the hood of a real sports car.

Asus - Lamborghini VX2SE review

You'll think the VX2SE is either vulgar and flash or stunning, but either way its build quality and finish cannot be denied. It is also pretty expensive for a 15.4-inch notebook, but it's certainly one to impress the neighbours... just not quite as much as a real Gallardo.

Alas, you pay a hefty premium for all the luxury parts and carefully crafted design elements of the ASUS-Lamborghini VX2S. Even Apple, known for luxurious price tags, sells its MacBook Pro 15-inch for under $2,000. For race-car enthusiasts, price is probably not an object when it comes to the VX2S. Its superior design and high-end performance parts are worthy of the Lamborghini name. It takes a collective effort from engineers to design something as sexy and as fast as the Asus Lamborghini VX2S.

When it comes to performance, you won't find this machine lacking. Packing in an Intel Centrino 2 package, you'll find a 2.5GHz Core 2 Duo T9300 processor, which is a fast, mid-level processor. Supported by 4096MB of memory, you'll find applications load quickly and run smoothly. We found the VX3 to be perfect for anyone looking to use their laptop as their sole machine, and the use of a dedicated graphics card helps it to pack in plenty of power without sacrificing its portable nature.

Around a year and a half ago we looked at the Asus Lambourghini VX2 and we were pretty enamoured with it. For a start, it gave us some actual justification for the usual TR habit of populating our reviews with more car analogies than a Bugatti Veyron has horsepower. Moreover, while the styling didn't really pay homage to the Lambo's namesake, it was still distinctive enough to persuade us it would appeal to supercar aficionados. Yes the VX3 is pricey, even overpriced, but what does that matter? It's a Lambourghini for goodness sake! There's nothing out there you can buy that's quite the same. (But I'll still have a Porsche 911 GT3 RS instead thanks - ed.)

When we recently reviewed Asus's ultraportable U2E, we thought that the premium end of the light laptop market had reached a zenith of luxury: a leather-clad chassis, a keyboard surrounded by brushed metal and a velvet pouch for the machine itself. We've been proved wrong, though, by the arrival of the Asus Lamborghini VX3. As the name attests, Asus has joined forces with the luxury car manufacturer with the aim of producing a laptop of unrivalled quality and performance. A hugely powerful luxury ultraportable, but it's undermined by poor ergonomics and a wallet-busting price.

Like its Italian namesake, the ASUS Lamborghini VX5 needs little introduction. Over the past few years, we've reviewed a suite of these ultra-deluxe notebooks, with each new model impressing on the performance front, but bombing out when it comes to affordability. The Asus Lamborghini VX5 notebook is a marked improvement over its predecessor, sporting better specifications at a more affordable price. At the same time, it remains a prohibitively expensive status symbol for elitists. If you want a notebook that will turn heads, it's pretty hard to beat.

It’s hard to see who Asus’s supercar laptop tie-ups are aimed at. If you have the money to buy a Ferrari, a Porsche or, in this case, a Lamborghini, will you really be going for a £1,700 portable to remind you what’s in the garage. If you drive a lowered Golf with blue neons underneath, wouldn’t you want a VW laptop? We guess the Asus VX5 is all about aspiration. A high performance, Blu-ray, HD-capable laptop with the extra panache of the Lamborghini tie-in.

Asus' quad core monster is for the privileged only. The Lamborghini VX range represents the top of Asus' laptop line and the VX5 (£1999 inc. VAT) is the latest model. With a 16-inch screen, it's large enough to use as a multimedia centre and desktop replacement, yet still offers portability. With its high price, the Lamborghini VX5 is for those seeking a designer laptop, but that doesn't mean it's a bad product. With terrific performance and a standout design, it makes a highly impressive desktop replacement.

86% Review Asus Lamborghini VX6 Netbook | Notebookcheck
Lamborghini. The name exudes power and exclusivity. A dual-core Atom puts this netbook well out in front of its single-core rivals, while Ion 2 gives it a (small-scale) boost for HD entertainment. Surprisingly, the engine is quiet and the temperature gain low. Could this be an eco-friendly racing car with long battery life?
Review: Asus Lamborghini VX6 notebook
Source: ITNews Australia English
The Lamborghini outdoes the Ferrari only in encoding/decoding music files and video. But the Ferrari’s slight advantage shouldn’t be taken as any kind of slight on the Asus Lamborghini: its price is good, the performance is good and features – including USB 3.0 – are well-specced. And it’s more readily available than the Ferrari One. The Asus EeePC Lamborghini VX6 is a 12.1in netbook you’d be pleased to use, and the only drawback, for some, may be the wrong logo on the lid.

Inside the Lamborghini VX6 is a 1.8GHz dual-core Atom D525 and 2GB of DDR3 RAM, in our real world benchmark tests, these propelled the laptop to an impressive 0.47 overall score. This is the highest we’ve seen for a netbook, and it’s helped considerably by the encoding and multitasking scores, both of which show the benefits of the dual-core processor.

Source: Tech2.in.com English

I wouldn’t buy this netbook for one simple reason; the price is too high for a netbook with an Atom processor. I’d rather buy an entry-level laptop like the Lenovo IdeaPad Z460 or the something similar, where I get a proper 14-inch screen and the laptop can play full-HD movies, not to mention that it would have an Intel Core i3 CPU. This is a niche product that could attract either brand-conscious users or people who need something portable, feature rich and cool to carry around. At the end of the day, it’s an expensive netbook. It deserves an above average rating solely due to the features, performance and overall quality. The price is ridiculous.

At $699, the ASUS Eee PC VX6 is one pricey netbook. While some will balk at paying $200 more than the similarly specked ASUS Eee PC 1215N, we like the Lamborghini styling and small touches like the soft-touch palm rest and recessed chrome hinges.

The Asus Lamborghini VX6 sells at an MRP of Rs. 43,000. Let us keep the Lamborghini branding aside for a moment (we know that there will be a time when the charm's ultimately going to wear off). This laptop is better than the previous 12-inch ION-powered ASUS netbook in two respects - a dual-core Atom processor and the USB 3.0 ports. Otherwise, it is more or less the same in terms of functionality. The VX6 falls in a weird category. It is far too expensive to be called a netbook. If your objective is to watch hi-def movies and have moderately powerful internals under the hood, then 40 grand can also fetch you the 13-inch variant of the Acer Timeline X 4820T we tested; if you're willing to let go of the car-branding. From an individual stand-point, the VX6 left me a little dissatisfied on a few counts like the battery life and lacking Optimus tech (which could've improved the battery life). If you insist on buying a 12-inch netbook, then the 1201NL worth Rs. 27,000 will do almost everything the VX6 can, except for the USB 3.0 high-speed data transfers.

Asus Lamborghini VX6 review solid 12 incher with an aggressive design
Source: Netbooklive English
So, is the Asus VX6 Lamborghini worth the fuss? Well, that's for you to decide. I can say that it is fast for a mini laptop and looks great. Pricing is high, but that's the case with all limited editions and branded devices, like this one. Too bad It doesn't come in yellow though, I would really dig that color option.

Source: Pocket Lint English
With ultra-low power laptops approaching netbook levels of battery life (and in some cases surpassing it) and with tablets usurping the netbook's traditional role as companion device, netbooks need to do something different to stand out. Despite the styling and the Lamborghini branding, the VX6 remains an Eee in wolf's clothing. You're paying a premium price for something that could be bought a lot cheaper elsewhere, and no matter how fancy the looks, the fact that this is a 32-bit Atom with only 2GB of RAM and no GPU shows as soon as you try to run any demanding applications. Sadly then, the NV6 doesn't even reach go-cart levels, despite its sports car looks - instead it's just a die-cast children's' toy sat in the window of the show room.

Asus reviews


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7400: The NVIDIA GeForce Go 7400 the competitor to the ATI Mobility Radeon X1400. Caution there are some versions with reduced momry bus available.

NVIDIA GeForce 9300M G: Enhanced 8400M GS chip, which is manufactured in 65nm and shows slightly better performance due to a few minor optimizations.

NVIDIA ION 2: ION2 is a GT218 graphics chip for Pinetrail Atom systems (D510, D410, N450) with 8 or 16 shader cores depending on the platform (10", 12", desktop). Compared to ION 1, ION 2 is a dedicated graphics card (connected only by a PCIe 1x due to the Pinetrail limitations) based on the GeForce 305M / 310M. Supports PureVideo HD to decode HD videos.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT: The NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT is the DirectX 10 capable successor of the GeForce Go 7600 GT GPU for laptops. Depending on the used graphic memory and the clock speed,  the performance is between the 7600 GT and 7900 GS video card.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 130M: The GeForce GT 130M is a higher clocked GeForce 9650M GT with a slightly lower TDP (level of the 9600M GT). The performance differs according to the used type of memory (DDR3 up to 1066 MHz and DDR up to 600 MHz). PhysX is only supported in an SLI configuration.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

T7500:

The Core 2 Duo T7500 is a Merom based Core 2 Duo with 4MB Level 2 Cache. It is positioned in the middle class (in 2009) and performs on par with a modern P7550 or Turion II Ultra M640/M660.

T9300:

The T9300 is a fast middle class dual core CPU for laptops and similar to the T9400 but with a lower FSB.

Intel Core 2 Quad: Mobile version of the desktop Quad Core processor. Due to low clock rates it is not recommended for most applications.

Q9000:

Slow clocked quad core CPU (4 cores) that suffers especially in many games from the low clock speed. Therefore, not suited for games and only for highly multi threaded applications.

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).

D525: For Nettops intended dual core Atom processor that is also used in Netbooks. The D525 has an integrated DDR2/DDR3 memory controller and a GMA3150 graphics core. Due to the missing Speedstep, the battery runtime is clearly worse than with other Atom CPUs.


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.

15.1: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. The 15.1 inch display is used for the 4:3 format and therefore nowadays hardly used and replaced by 15.4 and 15.6 inch formats. The 4:3 format does not have explicitely disadvantages, rather it is a question of taste. When TV-watching on the notebook it is decisive, in which format the current programm is offered. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

15.4: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» 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.

3.5 kg:

This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.


77.59%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
