ASUS Lamborghini VX3 reviewed: not nearly as fast as the car

Lamborghini VX3, we were watching it get lapped by the smorgasbord of other kit introduced at CES. Still, there's something to be said for a 12.1-inch ultraportable wrapped in sexy hues and accented with leather and Lambo badges -- unfortunately, "fast" isn't it. According to a recent test run over at CNET, the VX3 build quality was second to none, the style touches were easy to adore and the keyboard was surprisingly satisfactory. Unfortunately, the system faltered in more critical areas; partially due to the amount of bloatware that came loaded on, the 2.5GHz T9300 had a tough time surpassing other machines in benchmarking, and for folks hoping that the battery life would help negate that point, critics only yielded 67-minutes during a DVD playback test (and just 2-hours "in anecdotal use"). Even with the sluggishness, the VX3 may not be a bad choice if priced right, but considering the $3,299 sticker, we'd expect this thing to hold the pole position.
