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,...

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 1002 WTMi

 

We live in an era of brands and symbols. Everywhere you turn, you will see a celebrity endorse a lifestyle product, be it a perfume, or a more exotic product like a rare scotch. It's all about good living and heavy spending. It should, therefore, come...

In terms of storage the 1002 WTMi had a large 120 GB drive which is a good move as it allows you to carry a lot of data around without the need for an external USB HDD. The system's optical media needs are serviced by an external 6x multiformat DVD-RW...

Acer Ferrari 1004WTMi

 

The compact Acer Ferrari 1000 features the great looks and fast speed of the Italian sports car, but it doesn't have enough gas for the long haul.

Cool Ferrari styling; strong performance; comfortable keyboard; built-in rotating Webcam; plenty of ports and connections

Short battery life; optical drive is not built-in; uncomfortable mouse buttons

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

Expert review by:

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.

Gorgeous - simply beautiful to look at Superior build quality and materials Great performance that rivals Intel's best Decent bang for the buck (4002WLMI may be the better value) Can play any current generation game with reasonable settings Unique --...

The Ferrari could have used the 25 watt version of the 2 GHz Turion More cells in the battery would help Ditch the crappy mouse -- give us something useful

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 4005WLMi

 

Ferrari 4000有符合身價的高規格、高效能,加上極為精緻富質感的外型設計,與最值得炫燿的烈馬標誌,集性能與美貌於一身,Acer的法拉利機種再度成為AMD平臺NB的新標竿。雖然價格偏高,但是對熱愛百萬名車卻又買不起的玩家們來說,這實在是個相當便宜且實用的替代方案。

引人注目的外型設計、比上代更沉穩的配色、光纖音訊輸出、可雙層燒錄的吸入式光碟機、附贈漂亮的藍芽滑鼠、無線功能齊全、效能/規格皆屬頂級

機身容易沾上指紋油污、喇叭普通、全速運作時熱度不低、電力僅有3小時多

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.
