Dual-core Atom to take on AMD Ontario
Asus and Acer are gearing up to launch a couple of luxurious netbooks in Q4 and both models will be inspired by supercar brands.

Asus plans to introduce the Lamborghini-themed Eee PC VX6, a 12.1-incher with a dual Core Intel Atom N550 and Nvidia ION 2 graphics. It should ship in September or October at a price tag of (ouch) $699.

Acer is readying a Ferrari themed 11.6-inch that will feature something a bit more exotic under its red bonnet. It will be based on AMD’s upcoming Ontario processor and it should appear later in the year.

Acer also plans to introduce an Android smartphone dubbed Liquid E Ferrari, while Asus is readying a 15.6-inch Lambo notebook powered by Intel Core parts.

And Top Gear will be back on the air in November. Not sure about the Stig though.
