Asus passes first design round

Asus was chosen from more than 100 entries in the first round of assessments in the 2009 Australian International Design Awards.

The Eee PC S101 and Lamborghini VX3 models were chosen by global design professionals who viewed the full 154 entries online.

In the next few weeks, a panel of international judges will evaluate the Eee PC S101 netbook and Lamborghini VX3 notebook, measuring its innovation, visual appeal, functionality, manufacturing quality, human factors including ergonomics, semantics and safety, and environmental sustainability.
