Reviews for the Asus Lamborghini VX2

80% Has it got the Vroom Vroom?
Source: Pocket Lint English
At just under £2000 it’s not the cheapest notebook on the market and you’ll need to be a serious Lamborghini fan to find the finish to your liking but if you strip away the branding and the trappings that go with it, this is a great notebook. It’s powerful, with a cutting-edge specification. It’s not the most portable but as a desktop replacement, we found this a great machine.

Cars and laptops obviously make good bed-fellow if Asus' latest Lamborghini-badged model is anything to go by. Style-wise it will no doubt appeal to the market that loves fast cars and other such desirable items. It's not badly specced - and there are some impressive bits in there. But it's not top of the range right across the board, which you would really expect when you're laying down the best part of two grand. Unfortunately it has too many niggles to make it an instant must-have.

90% Asus Lamborghini VX2

Own your own private island? Check. Live in a huge mansion? Check. Lamborghini Gallardo in the garage? Check. Then you'll probably want to add this to your collection - the Asus Lamborghini VX2. Asus, isn't normally associated with high flying uber brands, so in a move flagrantly designed to boost its own sex appeal it has cosseted up with the Italian thoroughbred car maker to create as it says the, "unparalleled fusion... of advanced technology and astonishing design". You'll either love or hate the look of the Asus Lamborghini VX2 but there's no denying the quality of its build or the strength of its components. It's not the fastest thing around for gaming but for general use and casual gaming this is a serious looking and great performing piece of kit.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7700: The NVIDIA GeForce Go 7700 is the successor of the NVidia GeForce Go 7600 video card for notebooks. It is built in 80nm process and its performance is between GeForce Go 7600 and 7600 GT.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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


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.


T7400: Former mid range to high end mobile processor based on the Merom core. Compareable to a later produced and more  power efficient C2D P7450.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.


2.6 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
