Asus Lamborghini VX5 review

 

Asus' quad core monster is for the privileged only

Excellent performance ; Premium build

Look might not be to everyone's taste ; Expensive

Asus Lamborghini VX5 review

 

The VX5 sees Asus team up with the famous Italian car brand. But is it worth full marques?

An excellent mid-range machine with a top-flight price – it's your call whether the branded extras make it worthwhile

A high performance, Blu-ray, HD-capable laptop with the extra panache of the Lamborghini tie-in.

If you want a desktop replacement laptop with good video playback facilities, there are other machines with similar performance available for less than the VX5. The same is no doubt true of the Reventon, so you have to decide if the extras in this Asus...

Product Specifications

With poetic precision and atelier craftsmanship, the ASUS-Lamborghini VX5 is a fitting tribute to the Lamborghini Reventon. It is the superlative of avant grade design, one that triggers the primeval senses for exhilaration and power. Within the exquisitely designed chassis beats the heart of unrivaled power, one that only the discerning would comprehend, and in doing so ASUS managed to design and produce not only a notebook, but more of an art-form. More than that, ASUS has managed to encapsulate the very essence of Lamborghini by producing a notebook that is worthy to bear its badge.
