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 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 5000


Sleek looks and a great feature set make the Acer Ferrari 5000 a fine race-car-themed laptop.

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.

Acer Ferrari 1000 Series


A pint-sized version of the Acer Ferrari 4000 Series, the automobile-inspired Ferrari 1000 Series is perfect for the plane or the train.

Miniature version of the Acer Ferrari 4000. Only 3.5 pounds. Dual-core AMD processor. Race-car style. 360-degree webcam. Large hard drive for an ultraportable.

Could've integrated the optical drive and didn't. Standard battery not enough.

Acer Ferrari 4000 is a notebook hot rod


Acer's Ferrari is a high-performance wide-screen notebook for those who don't want to take it slow and easy. While its price tag is a few hundred dollars above competitive systems', the Ferrari is beautifully designed and screams performance.

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 high-class Acer Ferrari 4000 multimedia notebook sports a new design and new hardware under its hood.

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

Noisy mouse buttons.

Acer Ferrari 3000


If you're looking for a flashy sports car of a notebook, the Acer Ferrari is your vehicle.

Performance is adequate, but neither it nor battery life are up to the levels of systems built around Intel's best Pentium CPUs. At the same time, you won't find many other notebooks with rewriteable multiformat DVD drives for $1,900 street. And you...

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.
