Asus readies sports car notebooks


Wouldn’t it be great to have your own top-of-the-range sports car? Speeding along those open roads without a care in the world. Sadly, my finances indicate this is unlikely to happen – and even if I could afford one, the speed bumps round here would cripple it in a week.

A more modest purchase for the Ferrari or Lamborghini enthusiast might be an Asus notebook, branded in the colours and logo of those classic cars. Asus has dropped a few more hints about what’s going to be inside the dream machines this week – Intel’s Centrino Duo platform, more than 1GB of memory and a hard drive with over 120GB of storage capacity. They will feature a 15 inch display, but weigh less than weigh less than "most" 14in notebooks. Best feature of all though – a red light on the lid, built into the raised section that’s said by Asus’ designers to reflect the tail-end and grille of a 1970 Lamborghini Miura. Nice.

The notebooks are set to ship in April with a price tag of between £1599 and £1799.
