Asus has certainly been busy with new product announcements at Computex,
and while the EeePad
and new introductions in the Republic
of Gamers family are all swell, there's something special about Asus'
partnership with one of the world's leading car brands. Closing up the
loop on the company's bevy of announcements this week is a new machine
in the exclusive Lamborghini line: the VX6.
This stunning ultraportable has been revised from the 2009 verion (VX5)
Ion graphics, 512MB of VRAM, Bang & Olufsen ICEpower
audio technology, and a gorgeous white outer lid. The company is also
debuting a few new Eee PCs for the netbook crowd, with the 1018, 1016
and Seashell 1015 sliding out with few actual specifications to discuss
just yet. We do know that users can expect a Super Hybrid Engine for
adjusting the CPU to maximize power and/or save battery life, and the
promised 13.5 hours of usage should pique your interest regardless.
Asus Eee App Store, essentially a rebranded version of Intel's AppUp
Finally, the company has announced the Asus
App Store, which just might
be the most important and under-rated announcement of the week. It's
reported that this is being designed with future netbooks, UMPCs and
tablets in mind, with a possible launch on MeeGo
also in the cards.
Intel itself has been pushing for a netbook-centric app store, and with
Asus' lead in the netbook market, there's hardly a better company to
develop just that. Needless to say, the rest of this year should be very
interesting as these Asus developments unfold. The netbook creator
might just be onto something even bigger.

Answer the Need for Speed with the ASUS-LAMBORGHINI VX6, Next Generation of Eee PCs and the Ultimate All-in-One EeeTop ET2400 Series
Those with the need for speed will be blown away by the ASUS-LAMBORGHINI VX6. A co-branded effort with supercar manufacturer Automobili Lamborghini, the VX6 delivers stunning visuals that match its chiseled lines thanks to the next generation NVIDIA ION graphics platform with 512MB VRAM. And with audio designed by Bang & Olufsen ICEpower, the VX6 has the audio equivalent of its namesake's V12 engines.
Following in its tracks come the fourth generation of Eee PCs™—namely the 1018, 1016, and the classic Seashell 1015. These Eee PCs' crafted lines are paired with various innovative materials for a distinctive feel that ranges from the touches of tactile aluminum for the 1018 to the soft-to-the-touch matte surface of the 1015.
This new range offers instantaneous web access on-the-go, allowing you to log onto ASUS Access for multimedia content downloads and ASUS WebStorage for easy file sharing capabilities. With ASUS Super Hybrid Engine, users can expect up to 13.5 hours of battery life.
