If you've always wanted to own a Lamborghini but could never quite afford one, here's your chance to get one without having to sell that cottage in the Hamptons. It's the new Asus Automobili Lamborghini VX7 gaming laptop available in orange, black, and carbon fiber colors. Pop open the hood and you'll find one of Intel's second generation quad-core Core i7 processors ready to rev, along with Nvidia's GeForce GTX 460M graphics.
No, we can't afford a 2012 Lamborghini Aventador, and that's a crying shame, because we'd sure love to own one. If you're a gearhead, you'll appreciate this new model Lambo for its 691-horsepower V12 engine and carbon fiber monocoque. We dig those too, but the techheads that we are, we also appreciate the Tegra-inspired MMI infotainment system.
The mechanics at Asus have been tinkering under the hood of the company's Lamorghini Eee PC line and are nearly ready to roll out a couple of new models to the showroom floor.
At the end of this month, Asus will rev its 12.1-inch Lamborghini VX6 in the Taiwan market for around $800. Shortly after, Asus will follow suit with a 17-inch model, the VX7.
The VX6 will race along with an Intel Atom D525 processor, 4GB of DDR3 memory, a 320GB hard drive, USB 3.0 support, and Nvidia's Optimus technology. Those specs aren't likely to woo power users, but then again, we're talking about a 12.1-inch laptop here.
No word on how the 17-inch will come configured or at what price.
