Acer unwraps Ferrari One notebook

Red? Check. Ferrari logo? Check. AMD Vision mention? Er...

Top three mobile application threats

Acer is determined to snare pole position in the notebook market and so has once more turned to Ferrari for inspiration.

Acer's Ferrari One boasts a dual-core AMD Athlon X2 L310 CPU

The new Ferrari One sports an iconic ‘racing red’ lid – complete with prancing pony Ferrari logo, of course – and a carbon fibre-look underbelly that draws parallels with the Italian car firm’s pricier models.

But instead of a turbo-charged V8 under the bonnet, you will find a dual-core AMD Athlon X2 L310 1.2GHz CPU and 2GB of 800MHz DDR 2 memory.

The machine has an 11in, 1366 x 768 display and graphics delivered courtesy of an ATI Radeon HD 3200 GPU, Acer said.

That's spec enough to get the laptop classified as an AMD Vision machine.

A 250GB HDD comes as standard, as does a multi-format memory card reader. On the connectivity side of things, the Ferrari One features 802.11b/g Wi-Fi support, Acer added.

Optional extras include Bluetooth, 3G and electric windows

The 285 x 24 x 204mm model’s other noteworthy features include chiclet-style keys and a multi-touch mousepad. Acer claimed that the machine’s six-cell battery is good for five hours of continuous use.

Acer will ship the Ferrari One from 22 October for an on-the-desktop price of €450 (£393/$656). ®
