ASUS Introduces the ASUS-Lamborghini VX1 Notebook at the 2006 Concorso Italiano

Stunning Notebook Makes It's US Debut.

FREMONT, Calif., Aug. 14 -- ASUS Computer International, a leading provider of high quality notebooks worldwide, will announce the availability of the ASUS-Lamborghini VX1 notebook in the US at the 2006 Concorso Italiano "Celebration of Italian Style," on August 18th. ASUS CEO, Ivan Ho, and Lamborghini CEO and President, Stephan Winkelmann, will unveil the ASUS-Lamborghini VX1 during a press announcement at 10:00 AM at the Automobili Lamborghini tent. ASUS will showcase the notebook at both the ASUS and Lamborghini tents and will have a drawing open to the public for a new ASUS-Lamborghini VX1 notebook.


The result of a comprehensive partnership between ASUS, Automobili Lamborghini, and Intel(R), the notebook will be the first in a series of officially licensed products. The ASUS-Lamborghini VX1 successfully captures the spirit of the cars whose name it bears with design details and special mirror painting finish suggestive of Lamborghini's fine automobiles. The product was designed from the beginning to be, like its Lamborghini namesake, in a category by itself. "The ASUS-Lamborghini VX1 backs up its Lamborghini- inspired design with top performance, unbeatable features, and rock-solid ASUS quality. It is a stunning notebook worthy of the Lamborghini name," says Stephan Winkelmann, CEO and President of Automobili Lamborghini (and current owner of an ASUS-Lamborghini VX1).

ASUS Computer International is a leading provider of 3C (computing, communications, and consumer electronics) total solutions. Its product portfolio includes notebooks, motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, information appliances, desktop PCs, servers, wireless solutions, digital home, and networking devices.

Automobili Lamborghini has been a part of the Audi Group since 1998. It is based in Sant'Agata, Bolognese, in Italy.

The ASUS-Lamborghini VX1 offers the following advantages:

Speed -- Exclusive NVIDIA GeForceGo 7400VX Special Edition Dedicated
Graphics Engine
The NVIDIA GeForceGo 7400VX Special Edition dedicated graphics engine is
designed exclusively for the VX1 notebook series. Users will enjoy
movies and play games with unparalleled 3D image performance on its
brilliant 1400 x 1050 Color Shine screen.

Power - Intel Centrino Duo Mobile Technology
The ASUS-Lamborghini VX1 is based on the latest Intel(R) Core(R) Duo
processor T2500 2.0GHz. The dual-core capability of the ASUS-Lamborghini
VX1 optimizes multitasking and provides processing performance that
exceeds desktop level. Core(R) Duo processors are super-efficient and
use less power, extending battery life by up to 25%. A hefty 2GB of
DDRII 677 memory makes applications fly.

Mobility - Slim and Lightweight Design
Just as streamlined Lamborghinis are designed from the ground up for
maximum acceleration with supreme aerodynamics, the VX1 is designed for
superior mobility with a light, compact design. This 15" notebook weighs
less than most 14" notebooks.

Pleasure - The Pride of Knowing You Have the Best
The ASUS-Lamborghini VX1's exquisite style and unsurpassed performance
make any task a pleasure. The pride and excitement of ownership lingers
long after the machine powers down.
