Asus Lambo Laptop Gets Santa Rosa Upgrade

Making the VX2 even more desirable.

We’ve already seen that the Asus Lamborghini VX2 is a highly desirable piece of kit, but it just got better…

Despite no official confirmation from Asus itself we know that its flagship notebook is about to receive the Santa Rosa treatment. Consequently, all the benefits of the new platform including a second generation ‘Merom’ Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, NAND flash memory caching, Dynamic Acceleration and wireless n connectivity will be present under that distinctive yellow casing.

On top of this we hear that while the 15.4in 1680 x 1050 resolution display remains the same, a T7700 (2.4GHz) CPU will be at its heart along with a Blu-ray drive, 512MB GeForce 8600M GT graphics card, 2GB RAM and a 5,400RPM 160GB HDD. Ports will include HDMI, e-SATA, ExpressCard and Gigabit Ethernet with the whole machine weighing just 2.8Kg.

The name of the latest Lambo laptop is also likely receive a tweak, being dubbed the ‘VX2 S’ – I can’t possibly imagine what the additional letter could stand for… 😉

Obviously there is no word on pricing or an official release date, but given the swarm of Santa Rosa based laptops at this moment in time a June or July launch would prove the very definition of logic.
