Asus has finally revealed what lies under the hood of its Lamborghini-branded notebook, the VX1.

According to Asus, the VX1 - dubbed the "supernote" - will contain a 2GHz T2500 processor - alas not a top-of-the-line Core Duo - Intel's 945PM chipset and the chip giant's 3945ABG 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi adaptor. It's got 1GB of 667MHz DDR 2 SDRAM, a 120GB hard drive and a dual-layer DVD±R/RW optical unit.

The display, as expected, is a 15in screen, with a 1,400 x 1,050 resolution. It's driven by an Nvidia GeForce Go 7400 with 256MB of graphics memory, though it can grab 256MB more out of the main memory bank thanks to Nvidia's TurboCache system. Read more.

What's next, Medion that comes with a Lada design ? :)

no serious, I don't understand why these "car-laptops" are so overhyped... :P

I do have to admit it's a nice thing (specs), and the design is cool too (the black...) :)

Nice specs? Screen res isn't high enough, should have gone with atleast 15.4" WUXGA. (as soon as possible make a blue ray drive option)

7400 turbocache is slow, zaps your RAM, and is hard to disable.

Also like has already been mentioned they should have gone with or have the option of getting a core duo.

I would also be dissapointed if you can't get a wifi card that does more than standard 54 mbps. 108 or wimax support or something optional like that would be nice. What we really need is 802.11n but they are too lazy to finalize the standard, so most will be stuck with g for a while...

And if it is just shipping with a slower core duo they should have an option to get the latest, if not that doesnt make any sense either.

A laptop marketed after a fancy, fast, expensive car should be a fancy, maybe expensive and fast laptop.
