Asus lights up 1TB SSD Lamborghini laptop
More storage space than the real thing?
Lamborghini’s aren’t known for their storage capacity, but buy one from Asus and you’ll get plenty.
Asus' Lamborghini VX5: a 1TB SSD on board
That’s because the firm’s new Lamborghini VX5 laptop will come with a whopping 1TB of solid-state storage, a capacity that Asus’ claimed is currently the world’s largest available SSD density.
That'll raise the laptop's price hugely, but right now Asus isn't saying what it plans to charge for the VX5.
Underneath the hood is an Intel Core 2 Quad processor and 4GB of memory, while the PC’s “speed key” is designed to let the user accelerate CPU and GPU performance.
Speaking of the GPU: visual content’s displayed on a 16in 1920 x 1080 screen by a dedicated Nvidia GeForce GT 130M graphics chip with 1GB of GDDR 3 video Ram. A Blu-ray combo drive is also included.
Asus hasn’t forgotten that style is central to the lust for a Lamborghini though, and so has included a chiclet-style keyboard that automatically lights up in low-lighting conditions.
Asus hasn't said when the Lamborghini VX5 laptop will go on sale. ®
TB or TiB? More storage space!
When you said "more storage space than the real thing", I thought you were referring to the fact that flash memory is measured in TiB and rotating disks in TsuckB, and therefore the SSD is more capacious than a "1TB" drive.
RE: Screen resolution
I thought there were several Asus models with those two screens you wanted? I have an older G1 (GS1? I forget in my senility) which is 15.4 and 1680x1050 which was my latest gaming machine, though I find myself wishing I’d waited for the G71 or C90 now!! As a company Asus seem determined to release the highest number of makes and models known to man, so I’m sure you’ll be able to find the spec you want…
wow, you've gotta whopping 780 seconds of battery life, ain't ya? did you have enough time to enjoy typing with the keyboard and feeleng the soft genuine leather under your palms, dude?
Wow, that is gaudy. I'd much prefer the Asus N80 or N50 as a desktop replacement (except for the eSATA port on the front - wtf?!), but their low screen res paired with pathetic viewing angles are a dealbreaker. Waiting for them to bring back a 14" with 1440x900 or a 15.4" with 1680x1050.
Sleek and sexy as it is, in 20 years...
My Lamborghini car will still be worth something.
Paris, 'cause she'll buy one, with a web cam.
