The Lamborghini of laptops races into the UK
Wednesday 13 July 2011
The ASUS-Automobili Lamborghini VX7 has come speeding onto the UK market.
Fans of the iconic Italian (but now German-owned) brand, especially those who can’t afford the cars' million-dollar price tags, can bring a piece of grand touring tradition into their office.
The laptop offers a distinctive outer-casing design, a 15.6" display, dual 750GB hard drives and quad-core 2nd generation Intel Core i7 processors and is the world’s first laptop with dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M graphics.
"The VX7 stays faithful to its Automobili Lamborghini pedigree with sheer performance for gaming, multimedia, online entertainment and productivity. What’s more, in two directly licensed colours (orange and black carbon fibre) and with exquisite style in detailed design finishes, it perfectly reflects the panache of the Lamborghini’s iconic image," said Asus.
The laptop is priced at £1,999 (€2265) and is available now from Anvika or Amazon.
For those of you wanting something a little more portable, Asus makes a Lamborghini VX6 laptop with a 12.1" display.
