ASUS Lamborghini VX3-A1Y Review

 

Those who can afford the $3,299 ASUS Lamborghini VX3 will enjoy fast performance, discrete graphics, and bragging rights. If you can live with a slightly smaller 11-inch display but still want a notebook that will turn heads, check out the leather-clad...

Luxurious design, Blazing performance, Separate Power Mode switch

Very expensive, Nine-cell battery makes it awkward to carry, Subpar display and sound, Shorter-than-expected battery life

ASUS Lamborghini VX3 Laptop

 

We've seen several tech manufacturers over the years create products with automotive branding, with perhaps some of the more well known products being Acer's Ferrari laptops. We've even seen Abarth, Fiat's in-house tuning arm team up with Intel to...

The VX3 is an exciting machine and from the moment you unbox the laptop and power up it exudes class. When you boot up the machine the sampled roar of a Lamborghini engine fills your ears –

Asus' Lamborghini VX3 notebook is unabashedly expensive, and that seems to be the point. An item can't be exclusive if it can be bought at a mainstream price point. Lamborghini car owners want to own something uncommon, and they're probably not too...

Asus Lamborghini VX3

 

Asus, which was recently in the news on account of its Eee PC range of small notebooks, has released an updated version of its premier Lamborghini co-branded laptop – the VX3.� Previous products in this range have been great performers with exquisite...

All said and done, we would advise you to steer clear of the VX3. At its price point, this laptop should have been an outperformer... but sadly, it feels more like a sportscar that's running on petrol fumes.

If you’re not quite rich enough to own a luxury sports car, but still have more money than sense, then the Asus-Lamborghini V3 might just be the status symbol you're looking for. However, it isn’t that fast for a Lamborghini notebook, and is...
