ASUS unleashes new Lamborghini VX7 notebook

A 15.6in desktop replacement notebook designed specifically for die-hard Lamborghini fans

ASUS has released details of its new Lamborghini notebook, the VX7. It's a 15.6in notebook that uses licensed Lamborghini colours and a distinct body shape to appeal to fans of the Italian supercar maker. It weighs in at around 3.82kg and it has a high-end configuration under its hood that should make it one of the fastest notebooks on the market.

A Second Generation Intel Core i7-2630M CPU runs the VX7, and it's joined by 16GB of 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM, 1.5TB worth of internal storage (two 750GB, 7200rpm hard drives, but a 1.25TB solid state hybrid configuration is also available), and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M graphics adapter with 3GB of GDDR5 memory. With this configuration, the Lamborghini will be able to run practically any application with ease, and it will also be a good mobile gaming platform.

The screen has a native resolution of 1920x1080 and it comes with a 2-megapixel webcam. You also get a Blu-ray burner and USB 3.0 in addition to the standard slew of PC ports, such as USB 2.0, Gigabit Ethernet and HDMI.

However, with these specs and the extra design elements there is an associated price premium: the VX7 costs $2999. The extra design elements include a soft-touch palm rest that's made out of the same material as a Lamborghini's tyres, leather trim and aluminium construction. Furthermore, heat from the notebook's internal components is dissipated through cooling vents at the rear of the laptop that are meant to look like the taillight and exhaust assemblies of a Lamborghini.

The VX7 will be available in Harvey Norman and only hardcore Lamborghini fans in need of a fast desktop replacement notebook should apply.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
