Asus has been building Lamborghini branded laptops for a while now, using details like a fan outlet in the shape of a Gallardo wheel and featuring the Raging Bull crest to set them apart from the more usual laptops.
A Lamborghini is something special, so a Bull branded laptop should be different too, that is why the latest VX5 model will actually feature a 1Tb Solid State hard drive, a first for a laptop, albeit we must admit that Toshiba already has a unit with a 512 Gb SSD.
First view of this amazing new Asus was at the CeBIT exhibition back in March, but sources state that first deliveries in Europe will happen later this month, with Italy being the first market to receive them toward the end of June.
So what makes this laptop any better than the rest out there ? For one naturally the SSD unit, but also an impressive Intel Core 2 Quad Q9000 processor, so it sure isn't a slow burner this one, especially with the Blue Ray unit, a total of no less than 4gb of DD3 Ram and a very nice NVIDIA GeForce GT130M graphics card that will put out 1080 lines of color on the large 16 inch screen.
We have no indication on pricing yet, but you can expect it won't be cheap once it hits the shops later this month, however keep in mind it is a very well equipped laptop and it features our favorite make, so that should sweeten the deal considerably.
