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.

      • 4 Years Ago

      wow its not even an SSD? dont people know that Lamborghini is supposed to be synonymous with speed and not capacity?

      Its kind of like putting the lambo label on an celeron powered netbook with intel graphics, or putting it on a civic.

        Better than those ridiculous overpriced out of date Vertu cell phones.

      Looks sleek but a tad too expensive.

      Looks fantastic on a white background, but would most likely look bizarre in anyone's home.

      Comment "As of Feb 14, 2011 PC Rides will be producing a Core i3, i5 and i7 with a variety of options including DDR3 1666Mhz Ram, Solid State HDD's, 1GB On Board Graphic Cards, 7.1 surround Sound, USB 3.0, and more. Keep an eye out for them at a retailer new you.

      This data is very out to date on the website:

      Likewise, there's PC Rides' Camaro, in which they state on their page that it's suitable for ...

      "Extreme Gaming: Become the ultimate gamer with an easily upgradable system that will be the envy of your opponents, both for performance and style." Uh, yeah. When was the last time an Atom-based, zero expansion slot equipped, custom cased computer be considered "easily upgradable"? Never mind the other exaggerations ...

      Or you could spend the same $120 like this: $100 on a 2TB drive and $20 on a USB 2.0/eSATA enclosure.
