Asus Automobili Lamborghini VX7 starts its engines

Asus has followed up last year's Asus Lamborghini Eee PC VX6 notebook with a Sandy Bridge monster - the ASUS Automobili Lamborghini VX7.

The VX7 packs a big hardware punch as well as being a slick looking machine with a quad-core second generation Intel Core i7 processor, dedicated Nvidia GeForce GTX 460M graphics with 3GB of memory, and 8GB of DDR3 1333 memory (expandable to 16GB).

It's a 15.6-inch machine with space for two 750GB hard drives and it also has USB 3.0 connectivity as well. Plus, there's a Blu-ray option and it comes with a 2-megapixel front facing camera for all your video conferencing shenanigans.

Obviously with it being designed in partnership with Lamborghini it's high on the style-stakes too - it has "bold and distinctive orange and black carbon fibre colours, directly licensed and formulated to retain the iconic impact of the legendary Italian powerhouses" and, "each curve and design feature on the super-sleek notebook has been crafted to embody the sporty and power-hungry style of the Automobili Lamborghini models."

Now, read those quotes again - this time in the voice of Jeremy Clarkson and you'll be along the right lines.

Priced at a pound shy of £2,000 - the Asus Automobili Lamborghini VX7 is available now from Micro Anvika and Amazon.
