Asus Lamborghini VX3

 

The pairing of a laptop with a luxury car manufacturer means one thing: we can't afford it. Mike Jennings revs up the wallet-busting VX3.

When we recently reviewed Asus's ultraportable U2E, we thought that the premium end of the light laptop market had reached a zenith of luxury: a leather-clad chassis, a keyboard surrounded by brushed metal and a velvet pouch for the machine itself....

Asus Lamborghini VX3

 

It's time to rev your engines (sorry)

Sexy looks, solid performer, comfortable to use

Overpriced, poor battery life

If you’re not quite rich enough to own a luxury sports car, but still have more money than sense, then the Asus-Lamborghini V3 might just be the status symbol you're looking for. However, it isn’t that fast for a Lamborghini notebook, and is...

ASUS Lamborghini VX3-A1 review: ASUS Lamborghini VX3-A1

 

ASUS Lamborghini VX3-A1

Solid construction; leather detailing; cool branded extras.

Kind of slow for a laptop named after a race car; expensive; poor battery life.

The Asus Lamborghini VX3 is the laptop recast as status symbol. It looks and feels like a luxury item; we just wish it had a bit more power under the hood.

ASUS Lamborghini VX3-A1Y Review

 

Those who can afford the $3,299 ASUS Lamborghini VX3 will enjoy fast performance, discrete graphics, and bragging rights. If you can live with a slightly smaller 11-inch display but still want a notebook that will turn heads, check out the leather-clad...

Luxurious design, Blazing performance, Separate Power Mode switch

Very expensive, Nine-cell battery makes it awkward to carry, Subpar display and sound, Shorter-than-expected battery life

ASUS Lamborghini VX3-A1Y

 

The name says it all. The ASUS Lamborghini VX3 is a luxury notebook, offering plenty of style and top-notch performance, thanks to its 2.5-GHz processor, 4GB RAM, and discrete graphics. We recommend it to executives who like to show off on the go--not...
