Excellent performance, 1TB of storage, inbuilt Blu-ray player, it's a Lamborghini - in notebook form

Speakers lack 'oomph', it's insufferably smug and elitist

The Asus Lamborghini VX5 notebook is a marked improvement over its predecessor, sporting better specifications at a more affordable price. At the same time, it remains a prohibitively expensive status symbol for elitists. If you want a notebook that...

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

Asus' Lamborghini VX5 is a luxury laptop, with a luxury price to match — thankfully justified by the quality of the laptop and package. If you've got a wad of cash burning in your pocket, and don't mind a little luxury, the VX5 might be for you.

Luxurious design ; Decent power ; Leather wrist rest makes typing more comfortable ; Ceramic touchpad ; Overclockable "TwinTurbo" mode

Weedy speakers ; Huge power brick may limit portability ; Left facing hot air vent

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...

The horsepower inside the Asus Lamborghini VX5 is great for gaming: even the latest pixel chomping titles run at a canter. The island keyboard is sturdy and fits in with the overall continental car feel, and built in Blu-ray is present, so you can hook...

Open up the Asus Lamborghini VX5 and the leather wrists rests and polished metal casing make you feel like you're sitting on the inside of a plush speedster, but the outside tells a different story. The VX5 is supposedly based on Lambo's Reventón, but...

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.
