Review Acer Ferrari One 200 Subnotebook


Respectable performance for a subnotebook, Good battery life, Elegant Ferrari-like design, Light and small case, XGP-port for external video adapters, Keyboard with convincing feedback, Good display quality, Nice details such as feet in wheel-look,...

Display reflects, No HDMI or DVI, Small touchpad and short palm rest areas, Palm rest area gets rather warm, Not really quiet under load, Moderate sound, Some keys are rather small, Case dirties quickly, A matte display would improve the outdoor...

The light and small case scores with a harmonious look and excellent workmanship . However, stability or smudge resistance do not belong to the advantages of the Ferrari One 200. Despite some very small keys, the keyboard could convince by its good...

Still, the provided performance should be sufficient for all current office applications, and even current games should be playable, if you reduce the resolution and the number of details

Acer Ferrari One FO200-1799 (Athlon 64 X2 L310 1.2GHz review: Acer Ferrari One FO200-1799 (Athlon 64 X2 L310 1.2GHz


Speedy Netbook-size system; good battery life.

Oddly shaped touch pad; priced out of the Netbook market.

Acer's auto-branded Ferrari One FO200 may look like an 11-inch Netbook, but it sports a dual-core AMD CPU and a mainstream laptop price to match.

Review: Acer Ferrari One


Care to test-drive a Ferrari that only costs six bills? We've got one for you.

Nothing if not eye-catching in Ferrari red. Exceptional specs and solid performance for the netbook class. Surprisingly good value

Glossy case quickly becomes disgusting with fingerprints. Screen seems a tad grainy. Weak keyboard

Acer Ferrari One Review


Just as with many sports cars, owners of the Acer Ferrari One will pay more than they would for a comparable, but less sexy system, and trade in better mileage for a sleek design. Most will choose this ultraportable because of the Ferrari brand and...

Sleek design, Good graphics performance, Excellent keyboard, Good multimedia experience

Runs a bit hot, Not as fast as dual-core ULV notebooks, Lacks standard HDMI port, Relatively expensive

This durable notebook begs for abuse.


Great looks and a host of features make the Acer Ferrari 5000 series a contender.

• Excellent battery endurance • Rugged design • Small footprint

• Uneven screen brightness • Tiny keyboard • Tablet functionality costs more

Acer Ferrari 5005WLMi


This racing-themed laptop has modern features and design tweaks that improve on previous models.

Slot-fed DVD burner ; HDMI connection

Unusual keyboard, Weak speakers

This upgrade to Acer's racing-themed notebook line has an HDMI port and an unusual, curved keyboard.

Acer Ferrari 4005 WLMi Review (pics, specs)


The Acer Ferrari 4005 WLMi is 15.4-inch screen AMD Turion powered notebook with an ATI X700 128MB videocard. If you care how your gear looks, you will love the Acer Ferrari. Pictures do not do the Ferrari justice -- it is both understated and bling.

If you care how your gear looks, you will love the Acer Ferrari. Simply put, I have not seen a more desirable notebook. Pictures do not do the Ferrari justice. It is both understated and bling. The carbon weave lid looks great and is functional too. I...

Acer Ferrari 5000


The Acer Ferrari series will thrive as long as Acer can maintain the fabulous Ferrari design. The Ferrari 5000 can hold its own in the performance department, but the main draw is the multitude of features that come with this laptop. If you're in the...

Signature Ferrari design. 160GB hard drive. HDMI-Out port. Option for HD DVD-ROM. Rotating 1.3-megapixel webcam

Mobile AMD processor not as fast as its Intel counterparts. Slightly heavy for a mainstream laptop

One of the few car/PC alliances that successfully delivers both a terrific design and features that are ripe for the future.

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.
