    Taipei, Taiwan; January 3rd, 2006 – ASUSTeK Computer Inc. (ASUS) and Automobili Lamborghini today announced a comprehensive partnership that merges advanced information technology and automobile heritage. The result is the stunning Lamborghini Notebook Series that inherits all the striking traits of a true Lamborghini.

    Available in both yellow and black, the Lamborghini Notebook Series is the ultimate representation of technology and automobile fusion and a true mobile computing revolution. With design details and special mirror painting finish, the Industrial Design team at ASUS has successfully produced an exceptional innovation that, with the look alone, exudes power, speed, strength and beauty.

    "The ASUS and Lamborghini alliance brings together two brands that represents the highest quality and performance," said Tony Chen, Director of ASUS Notebook Business. "The new ASUS Lamborghini Notebook Series, a fusion of the best from both companies, will surely provide a different mobile computing experience. With unique mobile technology from ASUS and Lamborghini's cutting-edge industrial designs, the all-new notebooks provide a breath of fresh air to the boring looks of existing portable PCs."

    yea, but ASUS makes some absolutely high quality notebooks. The W1N series was the first and the A7V is awesome as well. Judging from the pictures, the notebook has lots of metal and must look incredibly sweet in yellow...

    cheers

    The Acer Ferrari is a POS! Ferrari should sue Acer for 'Defamation of Character'.

    What does Lamborghini have to do with computers?

    ...Nothing.

    That's why it's dumb in my opinion. I don't mean to be a d!ck or anything. But it just seems like a waste of Lambo's time.

    Plus I'm sure I'll see all the people on MTV Cribs will have this thing just because it has the the word Lamborghini on it.

    Well I'd take an Asus Lamborghini over an Acer Ferrari. Screw European cars, screw exotic cars (except the Viper), and especially screw Porsche and Ferrari lol. Lambo's the only way to go with Euro exotics.

    I said AND FERRARI, don't worry. But seriously, dumbass exotics are just that, dumbass. Go out and buy a $3,000 - $20,000 American muscle (60's-era Big Block muscle anyone? There's some potential for you), put $20,000 into it and not only will you be prouder, get more respect (from car guys at least), and have had more fun customizing it, but you'll destroy any $300,000 Carrera GT, Lambo Diablo or Murceilago, Ferrari F60, etc.

    Lol, I realize I'm totally off the ASUS+Lambo subject, sorry

    Oh yeah man. That's not really exotic, just expensive muscle. I'm not even a Chevy man myself, but I do respect the Vette. There's an '05 Mustang pulling low 11's from some company (not custom, just modified like Steeda, Saleen, Roush, Shelby, etc.)

    Also, what do you mean C6 ZO6? That looks like a C6 to me. I assume you mean just all new Corvette's.

    waiting for intel next-gen tho and if they call it lamborghini i'm sure it has 7647436 3dmarks and 3 minute battery life time which means it's not good for me

    It's the Z06 edition of the C6. 505hp LS7 (7L 427) as apposed to a 400hp LS2 (6L 366). Which is why it ran an 11.7. Although that guy got a sh!tty launch. With a good run they run more about an 11.5. There are rumors of a 600hp supercharged Corvette SS, but I don't imagine that happening. Although it'd be sweet. Anywho I don't want to get this too far off topic so I'll stop.
    I disagree, a V8 sounds better in my opinion.

    nothing, and i do mean nothing.

    :cool:

    its about the sound, my friend...
    its about the harmonics, that subtle low rumbling vibration you get and how it flows up your spine and shakes your helmet a bit when you get on and start the thing...
    it isnt about size. and it isnt about power.

    nothing. absolutly nothing beats a harley davidson V-twin when it comes to sound and feeling.

    Okay, that makes sense. That was a pitiful launch though, I agree. I know the Sledgehammer Z06 was (and as far as I know still is) the most powerful corvette ever factory made, but I'm not sure the horse.

    As in a BMW X7? That sucks man, where do you live? I don't know 1 person who has had their car even broken into, let alone stolen, LET ALONE with that kind of security.
    Sorry about that though anarion, that sucks bad dude. I bet you'll find it though, i mean with a security system like that I almost bet it's got some kind of GPS transmitter (especially since it's a BMW) that'll let cops know where it is. Good luck man
