If you were playing a little word association, you might associate "Lamborghini" with "lap-dance", but Asus would rather consumers associate it with "laptop" instead. The Taiwanese computer company and the Italian exotic automaker are taking the wraps off their latest collaboration, the VX2, which as you might have guessed, follows the VX1 that launched this past August at the Concorso Italiano in Monterey, California.

Asus is keeping pretty tight-lipped on the specs, only revealing that the new model will ship with Microsoft's new operating system, Windows Vista, and will employ Intel's Centrino Duo Mobile processor. Otherwise they're focusing mainly on the fit and finish: like the VX1, it'll be available in either yellow or black, but the casing will be made of either an aluminum-magnesium alloy or carbon fiber (depending on the model), and will feature a metal keyboard and what looks to be a rather beautiful contrasting-topstitched leather palm-rest, just like the trim on the interior of a Lamborghini road car.

That's all we know for now, but we'll be sure to keep you posted after the Asus Lamborghini VX2 is officially unveiled when it will have to compete with Acer's equally stunning Ferrari laptop series.

      Im not sure if it is true that buy a Mac is the only way to top this product, but as far as hardware goes, I believe highly in Asus products...

      My current computer contains a Asus Crosshair Motherboard chiped with AMD Athlon X2 Duel Core prossesor 4800+, with 2 GB of Corsair Ram. This Animation work station is assembed with Asus Geforce 7900 GTX Video card, a Asus CD drive, and the hard drive is a Digital Raptor 10,000 RPM drive with room for 150 GB of porn. Powering the whole system is a Energymax Liberty power supply good for 600 Watts of power.

      My computer only costed me $1800 not including case, monitor, mouse, keyboard, and my all important Wacom Tablet... In any case... If I could of found any more Asus products to stuff into my computer, I would of needed a bright Yellow Asus tower with a Lamborghini badge on it.

      Why manufacturers of high end products get lured in broad consumer good, be it laptop of cell phones or other trinkets is beyond me.

      Does the Lambo sticker add anything to the computer? Does the cheap plasticky Taiwanese crappy laptop add anything to the Lambo brand?

      I don't see Lamborghini branded VW Fox around too much, so what's with the cheap laptop crap?

      PeeCees are all the same because they run the same OS. Think of a showroom full of slickest cars--all with the same old, flat-head Studebaker Champion engine in them.

      The only way to have something better is to buy a Mac.

      #1 says it all.

      What's the point of buying a car themed laptop anyway?
