ASUS-Lamborghini VX7: From the Notebook Ideal to the Ideal Notebook

In 2006 ASUS, Lamborghini, and Intel met to discuss a radical new vision of a notebook that would offer the very best of everything.  That vision is reborn in the exquisite, officially licensed ASUS-Lamborghini VX7 - the latest offering in the legendary ASUS-Lamborghini series of notebooks.  Run your hands across its soft-touch palm rest, or down the lines of its perfect, piano paint cover.  You’ll be transported to a world where Lamborghini owners open up the throttle on a winding stretch of Tuscan highway. 

The ASUS-Lamborghini VX7 will be available for purchase in the coming months.

Heart First
Like the automobile, the ASUS-Lamborghini VX7 is built to give onlookers a rush of adrenaline with just a glance.  Its design is all Lamborghini, from its gleaming orange or black piano paint surface to its aluminum trim and soft touch wrist pad.  The notebook takes its design cues from the iconic Lamborghini LP-640 Roadster, incorporating elements of its cut angle hood, trapezoidal tail lights, dashboard – even its exact color. 

Hellacious Horsepower
What would a Lamborghini be without jaw-dropping performance?  This notebook supplements its Intel Quad Core i7-2630QM “Sandy Bridge” processor with a huge 16GB (1333MHz) DDR3 of RAM and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M with 1.5GB GDDR5 graphics.  Its dual 750GB 7200RPM hard drives allow fast data access (up to 33% better than 5400RPM), and decreased latency (by up to 25% over 5400RPM).

Magnificent Multimedia
Users can pop in a Blu-ray movie to enjoy on their home theater via HDMI, or on the VX7’s vibrant 15.6”, full HD 1080p screen.  In stores, be sure to compare the image on the screen with competitors’.  ColorShine technology makes colors brighter and more vivid for a more enjoyable viewing experience.  And with 1.5TB of storage space, users can store vast libraries of full HD movies.
All the Extras
As one would expect, the VX7 comes with a host of premium features including USB 3.0 support, HDMI support, and an 8 cell battery.  Accessories are all first rate: this model includes a customized, officially licensed Lamborghini® carrying bag and wireless mouse.
Turbocharge Your Business
Every storefront needs a showpiece to give customers an instant jolt.  If you display the ASUS-Lamborghini VX7 in your store, you will communicate style, excitement, quality, and technology to your customers with one glance. Raising your customers’ expectations of “what a notebook can be” will automatically get many of them thinking about better features and steer them toward higher margin models. Others will see what a phenomenal notebook the VX7 is, and won’t be able to accept anything less.
