Exquisite design inspired by the Lamborghini Reventón:

The ASUS-Lamborghini VX5 notebook is beautifully inspired by the precision design and technology of the highly regarded and limited edition Lamborghini Reventón and sports a long list of great design and technological features.

Robust materials deliver comfort and style for longer:

The VX5 is the world’s only notebook to feature a ceramic touchpad and genuine leather palm rest which offers comfort and support for users whilst typing.

The leather surrounding the touchpad forms a part of the actual notebook chassis through (a stitching technique unique to ASUS), and ensures a higher quality finish that won’t peel or fade and will truly withstand the test of time.

The Auto Focus 2.0M pixel web camera has a lens manufactured from the rare Sapphire Crystal – a material renowned for its scratch resistant and tough attributes. Now users can enjoy video conversations with friends and family with a truly crystal clear, mark-free image.

Accelerated performance balanced with power conservation:

Underneath the hood of the VX5 lies a nexus of technological advancements and unrivalled power, representing the pinnacle of ASUS research and development, and continued innovations to provide user-centric notebooks that are highly responsive to ever-changing needs.

Powered by an Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Processor and 4GB memory, the VX5 features a TwinTurbo mode that users can activate through a dedicated Speed Key located on the dashboard.

TwinTurbo accelerates the processor (CPU) and graphics (GPU) to generate a performance boost for more resource hungry applications - for example when playing a high quality game or movie. When extra power is unnecessary, for example when browsing the Internet, users can revert to the standard mode to reserve power consumption. This innovative ability to switch between low and high power settings with a single button allows users to save battery life, the environment and pennies without needing to compromise on performance, time or efficiency.

Comfort and ease of use in any lighting conditions:

The VX5 features AI Light Sensor technology, which automatically adjusts notebook settings to improve visibility and comfort for the user. The screen brightness will change according to ambient lighting conditions - if the user is outdoors enjoying the sunshine, the screen will brighten to improve visibility. For those trying to work in darker areas such as an airplane cabin, the screen will dim in order to reduce glare on the eyes for a more comfortable experience and the backlit keyboard will glow stylishly for easier keyboard navigation.

Beautifully clear visuals and sound:

With an integrated Blu-ray combo optical drive and a 16” HD display, the VX5 delivers a superb platform for viewing documents, pictures or movies. The dedicated NVIDIA® GeForce™ GT 130M graphics card enables the ultimate vibrancy and flawlessness of images, complemented by bespoke Altec Lansing speakers which not only offer audio superiority but blend into the chassis with a design reminiscent of the Lamborghini Reventón heat vents.

Plenty of space for files, pictures and movies:

The VX5 has dual 500GB hard disks (total 1TB) to provide a massive storage capacity – more than enough to store and favourite pictures, documents, movies and games in order to enjoy them both at home, at work and whilst on the move.

Affordable Luxury:

At an affordable £1,999 SRP, users can enjoy the luxury and essence of the Lamborghini brand at a fraction of the price.

* The Ivory White model will be exclusive to Micro Anvika @ Harrods during September, expanding to general UK availability thereafter.

* The Dark Graphite Grey colour version is available now, both UK-wide and from Micro Anvika @ Harrods.

The VX5 is packaged elegantly with its own range of accessories including a Lamborghini branded carry case to ensure users can stay stylish both indoors and whilst on the move.
