We are currently evaluating the Asus VX1 Lamborghini laptop in our labs. Though we are still about 1 week away from concluding our testing, that doesn’t mean we can’t share with you the big feature of the VX1 laptop — its great exterior design. So consider this a photo preview of our upcoming review of this laptop.

The following are the specs of the Asus-Lamborghini VX1 from the Asus website:

As you can see from the above specs summary, the VX1 is not the top-most end in laptop technology, but it does have speed and capability where it counts namely the T7400 Core2Duo CPU. The model we have configured has 2GB of RAM in dual-channel mode. The GeForce Go 7400 and the 5400 RPM U-ATA/100 hard disk aren’t the top-end parts you can find on the market today, but it should suffice for everyday usage.
