Review updated: This baby does have NVIDIA Optimus indeed! Click here to read the updated part and the following conclusion.
With the new breed of netbooks sporting bigger, 12-inch HD displays, dual-core processors and 1080p-catering graphics chips, we are sometimes ashamed to even call them 'netbooks' anymore. Asus is the forerunner in this segment, and we've already tested its AMD/ATI based and Intel/NVIDIA powered sub-laptops.
Today, for test comes the Asus Lamborghini VX6. Other than the popular sports-car manufacturer dressing and logos, this uber-netbook packs meaty internals like a dual-core Atom processor and NVIDIA ION graphics with the Optimus auto-graphics switching technology. It includes two USB 3.0 ports to make your data transfers vroom at high speeds. But will the premium car-maker's plastered image make this device's price go up to unreachable levels? Let's find out.
