Conclusion: The Asus Eee PC VX6 Lamborghini is one of the fastest netbooks around. With its dual-core Intel Atom D525 ( 1.80 GHz ), DDR3 RAM and dedicated Nvidia Ion 2 graphics (GT 218 core), it easily puts Intel’s single-core netbooks in the shade. But in terms of overall system performance, an AMD system ( Athlon K125 , Aspire One 521 , 10-inch) is roughly on a level will this Intel hot-shot.
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. We also appreciate the USB 3.0 ports, which enables lightning-fast backups and future-proofs your investment somewhat.
Pros: Racing-inspired design, Nvidia Optimus switchable graphics, USB 3.0 ports, Great low-light webcam
Cons: Expensive, Touchpad smudges easily, Shorter battery life and slower throughput than Eee PC 1215N
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. Too bad It doesn’t come in yellow though, I would really dig that color option. Let’s also take a look at the Pros and Cons. Pros : Cons : Now, what do you guys think.
Pros: good specs and performances, excellent design and build quality, that Automobili Lamborghini Logo on the hood looks amazing, decent keyboard and trackpad, top connectivity: Wi-Fi N, Bluetooth 3.0, USB 3.0, great sound quality for those Bang&Olufsen speakers, doesn’t get noisy or hot, good specs and performances, excellent design and build quality, that Automobili Lamborghini Logo on the hood looks amazing, decent keyboard and trackpad, top connectivity: Wi-Fi N, Bluet...
Cons: good specs and performances, excellent design and build quality, that Automobili Lamborghini Logo on the hood looks amazing, decent keyboard and trackpad, top connectivity: Wi-Fi N, Bluetooth 3.0, USB 3.0, great sound quality for those Bang&Olufsen speakers, doesn’t get noisy or hot, battery life is only around 4 hours, poorer than on the 1215N with the same battery and specs, expensive
Excerpt: Beautifully presented in Asus's signature black coffer, the VX6 is all dramatic angles and chrome inserts as it tries to bring the feel of Lamborghini design to what's essentially a high-end netbook. But is it a luxury sports car or a tricked out go-kart?
Pros: Powerful netbook, with a high quality screen and good sound
Cons: Netbook level performance, lack of GPU acceleration
Excerpt: Since Asus pioneered the humble netbook around three years ago, its Eee PC range has faced fierce competition from almost every other laptop manufacturer out there. From Packard Bell's Dot machines to MSI's Wind series, there's a mind-exploding variety of netbooks to choose from.
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
Excerpt: Sony Mobile started a new chapter of their smartphone design with Xperia Z. The refreshment was very welcome and Sony sold a large amount of smartphones since then, and Xperia Z, as a pioneer in this ... ASUS started with restyling the DirectCU model, which brought a breadth of fresh air in their recognizable design. With the cheaper GTX 760 model, aside from esthetics, there weren’t many changes. Con...
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. We’ve been mostly disappointed with Pine View-based Atoms - those with processors D450, N455, as they haven’t performed even to the level of their predecessor processors.
