Fast Netbooks Asus Lamborghini VX6

Fast Netbooks - Asus Lamborghini VX6

The Asus Lamborghini VX6 has clearly been designed as a competitor for the Acer Ferrari netbook, which you can see here - Acer Ferrari (bear in mind that the Acer Ferrari is due to be updated soon - with the AMD Ontario processor in early 2011).

Asus Lamborghini VX6 Fast Netbook
Obviously, by naming their Netbooks after famous sports cars Asus and Acer, the two main netbook makers, are attempting to appeal to the sports car speed freak enthusiast with a fair amount of money to invest in a netbook, as they are not the cheapest Netrbooks on the market. The Acer Ferrari is available in Ferrari red, the Lamborghini however is available in any color as long as it's black or white.

The Lamborghini VX6 is designed as an above-average entry-level mobile computer, as such it makes use of an Atom D dual-core CPU and a high-quality screen. For a netbook screen it is quite large, with a diagonal measurement of 12.1 inches. Most netbooks go for a 10.1 inch screen.

As far as speed is concerned the Asus Lamborgini is based on the Atom D525 CPU, a dual-core with a clock speed of 1.83 GHz. In addition, the chip is combined with the NVIDIA ION 2 graphics processing unit, which is fully capable of playing HD videos and will make full use of the LED-backlit display with a native resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels.

The Asus Lamborghini also has 2GB of DDR3 memory and a 250GB hard disk, USB 3.0 connectivity (USB 3 is said to be 10 times faster than USB 2), Ethernet, Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi, and a battery life of up to 6 hours.

It should be said however that the Asus Lamborghini is essentially the same as the Asus Eee PC 1215N with a different and presumably more glamorous design to appeal to the design-conscious, - so if you are looking for a fast netbook without the extra price you will be paying for the Lamborghini branding then check out the EEE PC 1215N

The Asus Lamborghini VX6 is now available for pre-order, at a price of US$ 699, which is not cheap for a netbook. The operating system is Microsoft Windows 7 home Premium which is much better than the Starter version.
