Acer Ferrari 4000 Review


Ferrari-themed laptop delivers long battery life but has an awkward keyboard layout and a small screen.

Delivers great battery life

Keyboard is awkwardly designed

The Ferrari 4000 is pit-crew friendly, with memory slots and a hard drive that are accessible to and upgradable by users. They sit in separate bottom compartments under covers that are held in place by small screws. You can remove the optical drive,...

Acer Ferrari 4005WLMi Review (pics, specs)


The Acer Ferrari 4005WLMi is an AMD Turion 64 ML-37 processor based notebook (2.0GHz) with a 15.4 WSXGA screen. Style meets substance as the Ferrari 4005 most definitely looks pretty with it's shiny red and racing tire exterior, but behind its fast...

(will try to limit to 5, although I think its fairly obvious I could go on for a while!): Ferrari (it's so pretty.....) Performance (works perfectly and is insanely fast) Easilly customizable 64 bit procesor (ensures future viability) Included extras...

(seriously, this is all of them, not including that EVERYONE will notice your laptop): Bluetooth/wireless controls on front (vs being near keyboard) Lack of media controls Keyboard/mousepad heat Headphone volume Screen/carbon fiber top tend to smudge,...

Great laptop, which will last you a while. Definately get the USB sound drive and the total protection warranty extension. At around $2,200 from most retailers, it is a tad pricey; however it really is worth it if you want a great performing laptop....

Acer Ferrari 4000


The 6.6-pound Ferrari 4000 comes with a good feature set, including four USB ports, a FireWire port, and a 5-in-1 card reader (MMC, MS, MS Pro, SD, XD). Video connections include both VGA and DVI-D ports. Built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11g are...

Design worthy of the Ferrari name. Carbon fiber cover. Fast graphics

Noisy mouse buttons

Through a partnership with the legendary carmaker, the thin-and-light Ferrari 4000 has a dazzling new design and new components for extra kick under the hood.

Acer Ferrari 4000 series 4005 WLMi AMD Turion 64 ML-37 2.0GHz


The Acer Ferrari 4000 series of laptop computers have received their fair share of press. The combination of good looks from a reputable company is tempting, but can it really deliver what you would expect from a computer its stature?

So in the end the Ferrari really does do its job well. It has looks to match its great performance. Although not the lightest around it is certainly powerful, making a worthy replacement for your lowly desktop computer. And with its fully features...

Get the 50005, I own one now and it is incredible!

very fast and solid. Good processor and RAM and Harddrive

If you get the version with windows XP x64bit version like i did, you are about to become very frustrated. Nothing it compatible with it and it crashes when you put a load on it. My screen ripped also and cost $xxx to replace. I have heard of other...

One Sweet Machine


When you buy this laptop, get this a sound blaster audigy 2 zs pcmcia card and get gaming, also great for typing.

Ok, this is a gamers dream! It runs all the high-end games I have thrown at it, HL2 is beautiful, World of Warcraft runs perfect. BattleField 2 is sweet and looks great. Beautiful display

It gets warm... not hot, but warm, and the lcd does have tearing issues. the onboard audio is terrible, but so is all onboard audio, and the bluetooth mouse is a wall ornament

Going to order one, have questions though


I like what I see in these, but could someone verify a few things? The hard drive, is it 100 or 120Gb, I've seen it listed as 120 in some places. Also, would I be able to put a Nvidia card in one? I've had bad experiences with Ati.

Going to order one of these real soon, looks sweet and isn't too far off from my desktop's specs. Newegg's usually got the better deals, be it upgrading, building

As always with electronics, the price
