Everybody’s been busy checking out ASUS’s new X101 Eee PC, but that’s not the only netbook the company is showing off at Computex. Also on hand at Taipei was the upgraded version of ASUS's original VX6 Lamborghini Eee PC and although it hasn't been officially announced, a spec placard was present.
Originally spotted by the folks over at Netbooklive, the new VX6S opts for an Intel NM10 processor and an AMD Radeon HD 6470M GPU instead of the Atom D525 and NVIDIA ION found in the older model. Interestingly, the Intel NM10 is actually the name for the chipset used in the already existing Atom D510 and D410 processors, and we’re at a loss to explain the “new Intel Atom processor” listed on ASUS’s spec sheet. In addition, it is specifically mentioned that the GPU is HD3D capable and that could indicate the inclusion of a 3D display.
Otherwise, the notebook comes with a 12.1” WXVGA screen with a resolution of 1366x768 pixels along with a 500GB HDD, up to 4GB of RAM, and a 6-cell battery. Of course the laptop will be available in the classic striking Lamborghini Orange and Black colors along with a leather palm-rest.
Asus has yet to unveil anything with regards to pricing and release date, but that info should come out when the laptop is officially announced.
