Reviews for the Asus Lamborghini VX2S

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.

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.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
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.
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.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
