Reviews for the Asus Lamborghini VX2S

Asus - Lamborghini VX2SE review
Source: IR Reviews English
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.

80% ASUS-Lamborghini VX2S
Source: PC Mag English
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.

Comment

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.

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.


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.

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.
