Summary: The Asus Eee PC Lamborghini VX6 might stylistically resemble its supercar namesake, but sadly it's not got the oomph of its four-wheeled counterpart. Its performance is better than most netbooks, but as this machine costs as much as a normal laptop, it's hard to recommend splashing out.
Pros: Looks slightly like a car; High usability; Above average performance; Decent display.
Cons: Looks slightly like a car; Quite chunky; Expensive for its class.
Summary: Lamborghini. The name exudes power and exclusivity. A dual-core Atom puts this netbook well out in front of its single-core rivals, while Ion 2 gives it a (small-scale) boost for HD entertainment. Surprisingly, the engine is quiet and the temperature gain low.
Pros: Sturdy case, Good keyboard, Very quiet, Stays cool, 2 x USB 3.0 and HDMI, HD Ready resolution, Relatively good performance with Intel Atom, Reasonable battery life, The sleek but exceptionally robust chassis with a matt palm rest.
Summary: At $699, the ASUS Eee PC VX6 is one pricey netbook. While some will balk at paying $200 more than the similarly specked ASUS Eee PC 1215N, we like the Lamborghini styling and small touches like the soft-touch palm rest and recessed chrome hinges.
Asus Lamborghini VX6 review – solid 12 incher with an aggressive design
16 September 2010
Conclusion: So, is the Asus VX6 Lamborghini worth the fuss? Well, that’s for you to decide. I can say that it is fast for a mini laptop and looks great. Pricing is high, but that’s the case with all limited editions and branded devices, like this one.

Conclusion: With ultra-low power laptops approaching netbook levels of battery life (and in some cases surpassing it) and with tablets usurping the netbook's traditional role as companion device, netbooks need to do something different to stand out.
Pros: Powerful netbook, with a high quality screen and good sound
Cons: Netbook level performance, lack of GPU acceleration
Excerpt: Dual-core notebooks have been a notable gap in the laptop marketplace, and the Asus EeePC Lamborghini VX6 is the first we’ve seen of a new crop of dual-core Pine View processor-based notebooks that also include the Asus 1015PEM, Samsung N350 and HP mini 5103.
Excerpt: The VX6’s jet-black finish and sharp angular design mimic the Lamborghini Reventón on which it’s based, but under the distinctive styling there are plenty of premium features. A desktop version of Intel’s Atom processor gives a welcome power boost over other netbooks.
Excerpt: Platforma to najnowsza propozycja Intela, która została oficjalnie zaprezentowana światu bez większego echa, tu przed końcem 2011 roku.
