No official word from ASUS yet, but Italian site Notebookitalia has it that the Santa Rosa class Lamborghini VX2S will be out in June. The update to the 15.4-inch VX2 brings a new 2.4GHz T7700 Core 2 Duo proc, Blu-ray Disc drive, and 512MB of NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics to a list of specs which includes draft-N WiFi, 2GB DDR2 memory, and a 160GB disk spinning at 5400rpm. Rounding things out are HDMI, e-SATA, ExpressCard, Gigabit Ethernet, and a 2.8-kg weight when fitted with the 8 cell (5200mAh) battery. Much to love... or loath depending upon your taste for these niche, co-branded products.
