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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
