ASUS's Golden Edition VX1 and leather S6F: if you got it, flaunt it


Asus just went official with at least one of the 4 leaked laptops we saw a few weeks back -- the Lamborghini emblazoned VX1 "Golden Addition" -- and hit us with yet another leather-clad model in their S6F. The Golden Edition VX1 is all that we heard: packed beneath that 15.2-inch SXGA+ (1400x1050) display you'll find up to 2GB of DDR2 memory, a dual-layer DVD burner, 3.7-hour battery and an ExpressCard/54 slot among a wide range on in/outs with a 2.16GHz Core 2 Duo proc and 128MB of nVidia GeForce Go 7400 VX graphics providing the vroom, vroom. Thing is, they skimped on the disk with an Ultra ATA/100 160GB HDD spinning at 5,400rpm. If that doesn't scare you off then you'd best get moving race-boy, only 200 will be produced, in Japan anyway. Also announced is the 11.1-inch WXGA (1366×768) S6F which smacks of the S7Fm leaked, albeit dressed in a fine suit of dead cow. It opts for a 1.66GHz L2400 Core Duo processor and up to 1.5GB of DDR memory and 100GB disk, Intel 945GM Express graphics, a dual-layer DVD burner, ExpressCard/54 slot, and even a webcam in the bezel like any good laptop should these days. You'd better opt for the 3.75-hour, 6-cell battery though 'cause the standard battery only manages a pathetic 1.6-hours. Well, at least it'll look nice in your purse. Both will hit Japan's wealthiest starting tomorrow with the little S6F set to demand ¥279,800 (about $2,387) on up to a preposterous ¥389,000 (about $3,318) for the VX1. Now how 'bout showing us those leaked gaming rigs, ok ASUS?
