Generally speaking, the Lamborghini VX2S seems to have a lot of various features that do not merge organically into a single picture. For example, it is equipped with a Trusted Platform Module and supports the remote administration technology Intel AMT, so it can be viewed as a Centrino Pro solution. However, it is just impossible to imagine the Lamborghini VX2S as a work tool of a businessman, and the mentioned technologies look superfluous.
One more drawback, all the indicators of this automobile notebook are based on super-bright white LEDs which just blind the user.
The slots and connectors are placed on the left and right panels. There are a lot of them here especially in comparison with the MacBook Pro: a Gigabit Ethernet port, three USB 2.0 ports, FireWire port, eSATA port combined with USB, one ExpressCard slot, one D-Sub port for an external monitor, an S-Video output, a HDMI port (you can connect an external monitor to it by means of a HDMI-DVI adapter), a microphone input, a headphones output combined with SPDIF, and a modem port. The left panel offers an optical drive that can read and burn CDs and DVDs and also read HD DVDs. An 8-format card-reader can be found on the right panel.
The notebook supports wireless interfaces: infrared, Bluetooth 2.0, and Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n).
As for the audio subsystem, it sounds loud but not deep. Well, you couldn’t expect anything better from the small speakers placed on the sides of the keyboard. The integrated microphone is located above the screen, near the web-camera.
The cooling system takes cool air in through the two holes in the notebook’s bottom and exhausts the hot air rightwards, which may be somewhat annoying for users who connect an external mouse. The noise level is average.
On the hardware side, the Lamborghini VX2S is a typical solution based on the last-generation Santa Rosa platform. The notebook uses a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo T7700 processor, an Intel PM965 chipset, and a 1GB Intel Turbo Memory module.
The notebook has 2 gigabytes of DDR2-667 SDRAM.
The graphics subsystem consists of a PCI Express x16 solution based on the DirectX 10 compliant GeForce 8600M GT processor from Nvidia with 512 megabytes of dedicated DDR2 memory. The graphics core is clocked at 500MHz, the graphics memory is clocked at 800MHz. This graphics solution makes the notebook strong in modern 3D games as well as at reproducing HD video.
The Lamborghini VX2S comes with a 77W/h battery.
There are quite a lot of accessories you can find in the notebook’s box, particularly a stylish bag with a Lamborghini logo, a Bluetooth mouse with a leather pad, and an additional docking station that transforms the notebook into a full-featured alternative to a desktop PC.
