Best netbook: top 14 in the world today

Asus eee pc lamborghini vx6


14. Asus Eee PC Lamborghini VX6 - £499


Inspired by the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 roadster, this is easily one of the most stylish netbooks we've seen.

The curved lid mimics the roadster's drool-worthy chassis and comes in a choice of white or black. Lamborghini's famous crest is planted firmly in the centre and adds an extra touch of class to the Eee PC VX6.

We were highly impressed by the VX6's build quality, with no flex or weaknesses in any part of the chassis. The lid is incredibly solid and could probably brush off a firm knock without concern.

This quality continues inside, with a firm and highly usable keyboard in place. And while it's rare to find an attractive touchpad, the glossy finish to the Eee PC VX6's pad gives it a sleek chrome appearance that stands out and looks great. The touchpad is smooth and responsive, and a good size considering the netbook's compact chassis.

The graphical abilities of the Eee PC VX6 are respectable too. Asus has included Nvidia's Ion technology, which offers considerably better performance than integrated solutions. We found the Eee PC VX6 had more than enough power to smoothly play HD video and run older games, and you can even get away with some light video editing.
