The powerful new 15.6” ASUS-Automobili Lamborghini VX7 offers a completely revamped notebook experience. It embodies the excitement of Automobili Lamborghini’s supercar grand touring traditions and offers users a fresh take on portable computing. Crafted to reflect the ultra-sporty and aggressive look of Automobili Lamborghini models, the VX7 is available in distinct orange, black and carbon fiber colors.
The ASUS-Automobili Lamborghini VX7 features the power of quad-core 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processors and clocks in as the world’s first notebook with discrete NVIDIA® GeForce™ GTX 460M graphics, supported by a massive 3GB of dedicated video memory. Users also benefit from a speedy solid-state hybrid drive of up to 1.25TB in capacity, rated at approximately 10,000rpm for super-fast access and performance.
Bullish approach to eye-catching design
The VX7 represents the culmination of the ASUS-Automobili Lamborghini co-branding joint venture, delivering a premium product for discerning consumers who hold luxurious craftsmanship and advanced technology in equally high regard. Numerous design touches double as highly practical performance enhancers and tributes to Automobili Lamborghini engineering and style. One clear example of this are the cooling vents at the rear of the VX7, which enable superior heat dissipation just as they echo the unique taillights and exhaust assemblies of Automobili Lamborghini supercars.
This design philosophy applies equally to the power button, which has been styled as an engine start key, leather-trimmed palm rests and the light but durable aluminum construction.
The VX7 is offered in three classic Automobili Lamborghini colors ― orange, black and carbon fiber. All are directly licensed and formulated to retain the iconic and attention-grabbing appearance of the fabled Italian powerhouses.
As one of the most capable notebooks ever produced by ASUS, the VX7 stays faithful to its Automobili Lamborghini pedigree with sheer performance for gaming, multimedia, online entertainment and productivity. At its heart resides the quad-core Intel® 2nd generation Core™ i7 processor, based on the Sandy Bridge architecture for enhanced graphics and multitasking performance with a highly energy-efficient posture. Dedicated graphics for hardcore gaming and multimedia come from the world’s first NVIDIA® GeForce™ GTX 460M GPU on a notebook, offering native DirectX® 11 and aided by the inclusion of an unprecedented 3GB of video memory.
With this high-end specification, the VX7 becomes a formidable gaming and entertainment platform. ASUS also offers a solid-state hybrid hard drive for storage (up to 1.25TB in capacity), which reaches access speeds of approximately 10,000rpm. Maintaining the Automobili Lamborghini “super veloce” spirit, the VX7 ships with USB 3.0 as standard for up to ten times the data transfer speeds of USB 2.0.
