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.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
