The 15.6-inch Asus-Automobili Lamborghini VX7 aims to appeal to petrolheads by offering a design based upon the famous cars of the same name, and equally quick performance. Our model packed a 2GHz, quad-core Intel Core i7-2630QM processor, 8GB of RAM and a dedicated 3GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 460M graphics card.The VX7 is available now for around £1,850.Lamborghini cars are renowned for being loud, in your face, and making mothers tut disapprovingly. This laptop is every bit as rude and in your face as the cars, but we're not convinced it's going to win the hearts of petrolheads the world over. The shell is made of a highly reflective black plastic with deep ridges running across it. The classic Lamborghini bull logo sits proudly in the middle, with the slightly less classic Asus logo demoted to second place at the bottom. Around the back, you'll find two huge vents under red plastic 'lights'. The rear is evidently designed to look like the back end of a Lambo, but, rather pitifully, the lights don't illuminate. We can kind of see the resemblance to a Lambo's posterior. Sadly, those red bits don't actually light up. From a distance, the laptop doesn't look too bad, as long as you don't mind epic amounts of vulgarity, but, up close, it doesn't do so well.
There was a genuine air of excitement when the Asus Automobili Lamborghini VX7 rolled into the office. A Lamborghini Gallardo boasts a 552bhp V10 engine and its namesake is running the laptop equivalent – an Intel Core i7-2630QM CPU, Nvidia GeForce GTX 460QM GPU and 8GB of RAM. The lid is sculpted to resemble the front of a Lamborghini, complete with the famous badge on the front. The base of the laptop protrudes out behind the screen hinge and sports mock Lamborghini rear lights and two gigantic vents. Although our review unit was black, this laptop is also available in a striking orange finish that we think looks even better. The inside of the laptop is also designed to mimic its four-wheel counterpart with a black and chrome finish – and the power button even reads 'start engine'. Better yet, the palmrests either side of the matt-black touchpad are stitched leather, just like the upholstery of a proper super-car. Not everyone will be a fan of the chunky design and, if you like your laptops slim and svelte, this isn't the machine for you. The design also means that it's incredibly heavy at 3.9kg and even if you wanted to carry it round, the dimensions make it hard to fit comfortably into a bag.
When you've got a high-performance notebook, why not make it look like a high-performance car? The ASUS Automobili Lamborghini VX7 takes all the internal components of its G53SW gaming notebook--an Intel Core i7 CPU, Nvidia GeForce GTX 460M graphics, and a full HD display--and wraps them with a chassis inspired by Lamborghini's sexy, angular automotive designs. For the premium price of $2,269, you also get 16GB of RAM and a Blu-ray writer for watching HD flicks on the 1080p display. Does this machine live up to the Lamborghini name?Che bella! That's all we had to say when we first saw the VX7. While the wedge shape of the notebook is not all that far removed from the ASUS G53SW, the lid and rear have been modified to resemble the Lamborghini Murcielago rather than a F117 stealth fighter (as with the G53SW). Instead of a soft-touch matte black lid, the VX7 has a glossy black finish with the Lamborghini logo in the center. As with the car, you'll want to keep a polishing rag handy to maintain the VX7's pristine look. You can also get the lid in orange; given the flashiness of the notebook, we'd choose that option.
