Presenting to you the Asus Lamborghini VX2.

1 Asus Lamborghini VX2 Laptop Review

The Asus Lamborghini is perhaps the only Yellow notebook available in the market today, and there are many features that you will not find in conventional notebooks, such as HDMI output, 8 cell battery, matching bluetooth mouse and a laptop bag with a matching theme. The notebook screams of quality, with a glossy exterior finish, a fast Intel Core 2 Duo processor, Draft N wireless connectivity and a 512MB dedicated GPU for gaming purposes, while at the same time ergonomically designed. We will be taking you on a tour of the features available on the notebook, as well as a performance benchmark joyride on what you can possibly expect out from the VX2. First , as usual, the specifications.
