If you are looking to get a laptop or netbook, you may be confused by the sheer number of models available on the market, not to mention, for different market segments – ultraportable for the frequent travellers, multimedia powerhouse for those who enjoy watching high definition movies, and even gaming workhorse for the hardcore gamers.

Aside from these, some computer manufacturers have also collaborated with fashion designers and even car manufacturers to come up with a product for the niche and premium market. For example, HP has worked with world-renowned fashion designer Vivienne Tam on a special Vivienne Tam edition laptop, while Acer has produced the Ferrari laptops with the car maker. And ASUS has their line of Lamborghini notebook PCs too.

The ASUS Lamborghini VX6 is the latest addition to the premium line of mobile computers, and that is mainly because of the "charging bull" logo on the netbook.
