Acer Ferrari One - 11.6in Netbook

 

Netbook or not this dual-core, 11.6in, AMD-based machine has plenty going for it.

Acer Ferrari 3200 Athlon 64 Notebook

 

Acer's 3200 is adorned with the flaming red paintwork of 'Team Ferrari'. But is it as desirable a machine as an Italian supercar?

Acer Ferrari 5005WLMi laptop

 

Acer and Ferrari have been in partnership for close to 4 years now and in that time the Ferrari-branded notebook has gone from a novelty, to a mainstay of the Acer line-up. It's under gone a number of changes but the core essentials have always stayed...

Powerful, stylish

Bit pricey

This is a great notebook that handles applications as well as it looks. Gone is the gawdy bright red of earlier models, to be replaced with something we feel is sophisticated. However, while the price may be high, you’re not paying too much of a...

Acer Ferrari 4000 Laptop

 

Acer hasn't been too shy about its sponsorship of the Ferrari racing team and the deal hasn't been all one-sided, as the Ferrari notebooks are one of Acer's top-selling mobile lines. The Ferrari 4000 is the fourth re-invention of the line and by far...

Powerful, attractive

expensive

While previous Ferrari models have sold well, I was never truly impressed with their look or performance. There are no such problems with the Ferrari 4000 - this is as good a notebook as you’ll find, with or without a sponsorship deal to bolster its...

Acer Ferrari 3200 laptop - EXCLUSIVE

 

What do you get the formula one racing fan who has everything? A Ferrari laptop of course. Scuderia Ferrari and Acer have joined forces to bring you the Ferrari 3200, a powerhouse of a machine with the style to carry it off.

Powerful graphics – and just look at it!

No 64-Bit Windows, pay a premium for the Prancing horse logo

This is a great machine that looks good and more importantly has the performance to match and a vast improvement on the previous Ferrari model that Acer launched. However, you will pay a premium for the Ferrari Red casing. If you are looking for even...

Acer Ferrari One review

 

A stylish, Ferrari-branded, AMD based netbook, offering dual-core power

Dedicated graphics ; Dual-core AMD processor ; XGP port ; Good build quality

A bit light on features ; Not everyone's cup of tea

A solid if uninspiring netbook with good performance and a lack of features

Acer Ferrari 5005WLHi review

 

Can this Acer earn its racing stripes?

HD DVD drive ; Good hard disk space ; Reasonably portable

WSXGA resolution ; No dedicated multimedia buttons ; No TV tuner

A good all-rounder, and surprisingly affordable, but let down slightly by multimedia features and performance

Acer Ferrari 1000 review

 

It's a good-looking PC but is there more than just style?

2GB DDR2 667MHz RAM ; 160GB SATA hard drive

AMD Turion 64 X2 ML-60 ; 12.1in widescreen panel ; Radion Xpress 1150

Buyt if for the badge, not the performance, otherwise you'll be disappointed

Acer Ferrari 5005WLMi review

 

Style and multimedia power live up to the Ferrari branding

Very powerful notebook ; Sleek and modern design ; Features

Ferarri branding might seem a little gimmicky ; Costly

A fine laptop, with enough features and specs to keep any user happy

Acer Ferrari One review

 

Acer's partnership with Ferrari to build laptops containing Ferrari design elements goes back at least to 2004. The Acer Ferrari One, however, is a totally different machine from the large and expensive Ferrari laptops of the past.

If you'd like to make the Acer Ferrari One your one and only PC, you'll probably find that it's a slightly small and underpowered to handle the job satisfactorily. If you think of it as an on-the-go companion PC, though, it's most impressive. The...

Product Specifications

Coated in Ferrari Red and sporting the coveted Prancing Horse emblem, the stylish Ferrari 3200 series notebook from Acer performs the perfection. The Ferrari 3200 series is an improved model in terms of both performance and craftsmanship. The high-gloss, scratch-resistant finish was achieved via an advanced ten-step production process. A textured carbon fiber strip across the keyboard strengthens the chassis while giving users the realistic feel of a racecar. More than a high-performance notebook, the Ferrari 3200 series is a sophisticated mix of style and practicality.
