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 4000 review


Acer Ferrari 4000 is a notebook hot rod

Wide, high-resolution 15.4-inch screen; great performance; multipurpose flash card slot; trayless double-layer optical drive; 1GB of RAM.

Lacks instant-start media player; more expensive than comparable models; odd curved keyboard.

Acer puts the pedal to the metal with the Ferrari 4000, a notebook that--like the Italian sports car--is powerful and turns heads.

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 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...

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 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...

Acer Ferrari 4005 WLMi AMD Turion64 ML-37 Laptop Review


Acer's Ferrari 4005 WLMi laptop is the latest in a line of high-end gaming notebooks bearing the Italian motor company's signature.

The price premium takes Ferrari branding into account, and that swift little carbon fiber panel on back of the 15.4" LCD. If you want a unique notebook that you can play games on, with a full compliment of wireless technologies, the Acer Ferrari 4005...

Acer Ferrari 4006


The Acer Ferrari 4006 has a superior build quality to the manufacturer's other notebook models.

Grunt under the hood

Slow productivity scores

This Acer notebook is worth considering if you need a 64-bit processor and plan to move to Windows Vista in the near future. The superior build quality is also a plus.

Light, very well performing, bold design

Nothing notable

Acer is really trying to do something different with this notebook. Its boldness isn't for everyone, but if you're in the market for a new power portable, check it out.

Acer Ferrari 4000 Notebook


The Ferrari team may be struggling in Formula One this year, but Acer's latest Ferrari notebook blows away the competition.

Acer has put AMD’s Turion to good use this time, showing that it can match up to the Pentium M in pretty much every respect. The Ferrari 4000 really does look great and represents a huge step forward from the 3200 model that we looked at before....
