Asus Lamborghini HDD

Things tend to get out of hand with Lamborghini. Whether you're driving one and just can't resist pushing the pedal to the floor, or buying one and end up laying down an extra five figures on options. The same goes for Lamborghini electronics, too. Sant'Agata teams up with Asus for that bit, and for better or worse, the Taiwanese computer company has given us some pretty flashy Raging Bull-adorned hardware as a result.

Of course, like a Lambo supercar, Asus' line of Lambo circuit-boxes don't come cheap. And now they've launched a suitably Lamborghini peripheral. Imbued with lines inspired by the company's sportscars, this external hard drive looks the part, and with available USB 3.0 connectivity, stands to live up to the promise of performance. Unfortunately the price tag is suitably Lambo-like as well: the starting price of $120 for a 500GB drive with the slower USB 2.0 connection makes it almost twice as expensive as an ordinary hard drive.
