With all the look-alike notebooks these days, for those who need something that stands out to flaunt their taste for luxury, ASUS has their Lamborghini edition mini notebooks. We've seen the ASUS Lamborghini Eee PC VX6 before with its glossy shell, but at Computex 2011, ASUS is showing off a successor called the VX6S with some upgraded specs.

On the outside, the new Lamborghini VX6S looks almost identical to its predecessor. The case and design still have the same style keyboard and trackpad. The only things noticeably different was that the VX6S on display was sporting a bright orange glossy hood and the palm rest was covered in leather.

The real changes are on the inside, where ASUS has now upgraded the processor and switched the graphics card from the NVIDIA ION to the AMD Radeon HD 6470M. The specs listed also mentions AMD's HD3D capabilities of the graphic chip, which could mean a 3D display for the VX6S.

However, the display model was only a prototype, and the ASUS reps deliberated a bit when asked about possible 3D support before answering "no." A lot of the specs could still be up in the air and even misprinted. The spec list had the words "New Intel Atom Processor NM10" when NM10 is actually the Express Chipset used for Atom D510.

Nonetheless, the other specs are fairly standard with a 12.1-inch display, Bluetooth, Wireless N, 500 GB hard-drive, card-reader, and Windows 7 Home Premium. Pricing and release date are not yet available.
