Acer Ferrari 3000LMI Notebook


Love Ferraris but can't afford them? Check out Acer's Ferrari 3000LMi, a notebook that, at $1899, is a bit more affordable than the famous Italian cars. Capitalizing on Acer's status as official PC supplier to the Scuderia Ferrari Formula One team,...

The 3000LMi's documentation is middling. The sole printed aid is a bare-bones getting-started sheet. A complete Acrobat manual comes preinstalled on the hard drive, but searching is limited to bookmarks and a menu command--far less convenient than a...

Acer Ferrari 3000LMi


Stylish, Ferrari-red case; comfortable to use; integrated DVD-rewritable drive; ample ports and slots.

"I bought a "RED" lemon."


Looks good with great screen.

Runs extremely hot - burns lap Heat destroyed motherboard, processor, hard drive & AC adaptor within 5 months. Poor service - 3 weeks and still no computer- Acer won't replace the "RED" lemon - still trying to fix it!

"A Ferrari this is not, I returned mine after 2 days... ..."


Good screen 1400,1050, fast CPU, lots of features.

This is basically a Acer TM800 reconfigured to use the AMD Athlon CPU. Unfortuantely, many cool features were left out. i.e. port replicator, swappable media drive, smart card slot. Build quality was average. It is also on the heavy side. A major p

"One of the ugliest laptops of the decade"


Hardcore fans of ferrari team might consider getting one

Ugly, unimpressive features and definitely overpriced.

It's an odd gambit business-wise: align your own brand with that of another. But for Acer, the one-off team-up with Ferrari to brand and produce the Acer Ferrari 3000 notebook has resulted in a stunning product.
