ASUS Introduces the ASUS-Lamborghini VX1 Notebook at the 2006 Concorso Italiano
ASUS Computer International, a leading provider of high quality notebooks worldwide, will announce the availability of the ASUS-Lamborghini VX1 notebook in the US at the 2006 Concorso Italiano "Celebration of Italian Style," on August 18th. ASUS CEO, Ivan Ho, and Lamborghini CEO and President, Stephan Winkelmann, will unveil the ASUS-Lamborghini VX1 during a press announcement at 10:00 AM at the Automobili Lamborghini tent. ASUS will showcase the notebook at both the ASUS and Lamborghini tents and will have a drawing open to the public for a new ASUS-Lamborghini VX1 notebook.
The result of a comprehensive partnership between ASUS, Automobili Lamborghini, and Intel(R), the notebook will be the first in a series of officially licensed products. The ASUS-Lamborghini VX1 successfully captures the spirit of the cars whose name it bears with design details and special mirror painting finish suggestive of Lamborghini's fine automobiles. The product was designed from the beginning to be, like its Lamborghini namesake, in a category by itself. "The ASUS-Lamborghini VX1 backs up its Lamborghini- inspired design with top performance, unbeatable features, and rock-solid ASUS quality. It is a stunning notebook worthy of the Lamborghini name," says Stephan Winkelmann, CEO and President of Automobili Lamborghini (and current owner of an ASUS-Lamborghini VX1).
The ASUS-Lamborghini VX1 offers the following advantages:
Speed -- Exclusive NVIDIA GeForceGo 7400VX Special Edition Dedicated Graphics Engine
The NVIDIA GeForceGo 7400VX Special Edition dedicated graphics engine is designed exclusively for the VX1 notebook series. Users will enjoy movies and play games with unparalleled 3D image performance on its brilliant 1400 x 1050 Color Shine screen.
Power - Intel Centrino Duo Mobile Technology
The ASUS-Lamborghini VX1 is based on the latest Intel(R) Core(R) Duo processor T2500 2.0GHz. The dual-core capability of the ASUS-Lamborghini VX1 optimizes multitasking and provides processing performance that exceeds desktop level. Core(R) Duo processors are super-efficient and use less power, extending battery life by up to 25%. A hefty 2GB of DDRII 677 memory makes applications fly.
