ASUS has already said that most of the new laptops they produce (if not all) will be REFRESHES of older models.
ASUS Z70v -> ASUS Z70va
ASUS V6v -> ASUS V6va -> v6j (Lambo)
I am an ASUS Fan, i like thier products and prices.
But When comparing Ferrari (Apples) and Lambo (Oranges), you really can't compare these two laptops, because the Ferrari 4005 is a 15.4" and the future Ferrari Models will also be 15.4", whereas this Lambo is a refreshed V6va which is a 15" screen.
But if you wanted to compare them anyways, 2 BIG Thumbs up to Ferrari and to the Future of Ferrari models.
This prooves i am not bias too
But to be fair to ASUS, there is still a mystery about what they got up their sleeves.
My guess is, take a ASUS Z70va and refresh it, give it a Yonah DC and a X1600 256mb and bam, ASUS is back in direct competition to Acer and their 8200 and any future Ferrari models.
You guys get what i am saying?
Last Year in 2005 the top models for portable gaming were: (not in order)
Acer Ferrari 4005
These laptops were in competition with eachother and yes the Ferrari is an AMD but it's just one difference, it was still competitive to the ASUS Z70va and others.
All of these models showed portability, decent build quality, not a big premium in price for brand, and awsome performance for the of 2005.
We will havta wait like 1 or 2 months and then people will have the ability to choose from about 6-12 awsome yonah +X1600 laptops in the market which would have some nice competition, and definately price is one big factor and battery life
At this point Ferrari does beat the Lambo, only cos it is 15.4" vs 15", and people are now prefering 15.4" over 15"
So we all gotta wait till we see what ASUS has to offer.
