Asus-Lamborghini VX1 laptop

Last week computer manufacturer Asus and exotic supercar creator Lamborghini took the wraps off their lovechild: the Asus-Lamborghini VX1 laptop. The slick new notebook was unveiled at the 2006 Concorso Italiano in Monterey Bay, California on August 18.

The computer is available in mirror black finish or in bright yellow and is a slender 1.2 inches thick. The VX1 uses Intel’s latest dual-core T2500 2.0GHz processor. Other features include 1GB of RAM, a 120GB hard-drive, wireless a/b/g and Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity, DVD+R dual-layer optical drive and a 15-inch screen.

Looks like the Acer-Ferrari collaboration is no longer the only Italian sportscar-inspired laptop on the block, but with this raging bull retailing at nearly three thousand dollars, the prancing horse remains the better deal with its equally-impressive spec sheet and head-turning looks.
Now if we could just get The Stig to test them each…

PC Magazine gave the VX1 3.5/5 in their review.
