Asus Eee PC VX6 is co-designed by Lamborghini and inspired by the superstar Murcielago LP640 Roadster.ASUS-Lamborghini VX6 ultraportable with Dual Core Intel Atom D525 processor, NVIDIA Optimus graphics and audio.The logo with the bull symbol and the tag Automobili Lamborghini are capable of adding a finishing touch to the design.Other features of the stylish Asus Lamborghini netbook includes WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, USB 3.0 ports, Bluetooth 3.0, built-in Webcamera etc.
The Asus has borrowed the details and the visual elements from the Lamborghini sports cars. The bull logo sits on the lid. This is the place which sports the Asus logo usually. The lid, on/off switch, base plate and the back edge all resemble the trim, interior, finish and spoiler of the higher end sports cars. The users who are new to the Lamborghini style will also praise the sense and the power in the design of the VX6.
The case is made of plastic which is complemented by a matte finished magnesium alloy used on the palm rest and on the keyboard surround. The surface of the VX6 is quite firm and cool and hence it is assumed to be made of metal. The thin perforated black strip on the lid also is made of metal. Though the major part of the exterior is made of plastic, the VX6 has a sophisticated and high end appearance.
The classy impression of the exterior is however spoiled by the finger print marks that are accumulated on the lid and on the screen edging. The rubberized surface of the palm rest is also prone to attract the finger prints. The touch pad is glassy and hence it also accumulates smudges. The construction of the base is quite sturdy. The areas on the top and on the bottom of the lid do not experience any flex. The lid alone undergoes some flex when it is subjected to severe pressure.
The Lamborghini VX6 uses an excellent keyboard. The keys are of pebble style and they are separated form one another with a substantial distance. The keys produce a tactile feedback and they travel pretty clearly. The end of the keystroke produces a hard impact which does not flex the keyboard bed. The arrow keys are of the normal size and are relatively easy to access without even looking at them. The enter key and the shift key on the right side are quite smaller. This keyboard is suitable for the users who type a lot because it does not make noise and the feedback level is quite good.
The touch pad is shaped like a parallelogram along with a silver border. This is sensitive only within the white colored corner markings. The finger slides are smooth with the smooth plastic surface. The surface has a film that accumulates the smudges made by the fingers. It also recognizes the multi touch gestures.
The VX6 features a 12.1 inch screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and an aspect ratio of 16:9. the high definition resolution allows the users to view the web browser or the emails without much scrolling. The colors are quite attractive on this display. The screen has to improved when it comes to the glossy finish which causes reflections. The horizontal viewing angles are acceptable with up to 40 degrees on the either sides. The vertical viewing angles are very narrow being only up to 20 degrees.
The VX6 uses the latest mobile chipsets and processors. The processor and the dedicated graphics card are on the top of the features that are preferred by the technophile netbook fans. The device features the Optimus technology. The VX6 is capable playing the full high definition movies with no juddering and with low CPU usage. They are played smoothly. It has very good ergonomics which is a strength. It is very quiet in all the circumstances. It remains cool in all the tests relate to the CPU and GPU. The battery life is 3:36 hours under heavy usage and 6.11 hours under idle condition.
