  • The Lamborghini laptop is designed to look like the grille on the back of a 1970 Lamborghini Muira. It comes with at least 1GB memory and a hard drive of 120GB or more. Depending on the configuration, a Lamborghini laptop will cost you between £1,599 and £1,799 including VAT.

    Like all the laptops on show from Asus, they will go on sale in mid-April.

  • The W1Jc carbon-fibre laptop was built "out of the same materials as a Formula 1 car to reflect its power", according to Shawn Chang, product manager of Asus UK. Pricing was not available.

  • The W6 series is bound in leather. "Touching is the guiding theme of Asus products this year," said Markus Wierzoch, design manager at Asus. "Our design philosophy is centred around the user." The W6 will be available in "camel", "crocodile", "pastel", and leather, costing between £1,599 and £1,799 including VAT.
