CeBIT 2007: Review Acer Ferrari 5005 Notebook

 

Scuderia Acer. It's common that various manufacturers aspire to c ...

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 One

 

This ultraportable outclasses netbooks when it comes to performance, but you'll pay a premium for its sports car looks.

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...

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 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.

Acer Ferrari 3000

 

The SXGA+ display and multiformat DVD-rewritable drive lay the groundwork for a fine multimedia notebook. The footwork, however, is up to you—the only significant piece of bundled software is an OEM edition of NTI CD & DVD Maker for ripping, adjusting,...

Flashy and sporty, multiformat DVD burner, 15-inch SXGA+ LCD, excellent connectivity options, 4-in-1 memory card slot

Too-heavy charger, so-so battery life, feeble software bundle

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.
