Can't afford an Ferrari that goes vroom vroom? Maybe you can get the same experience from one that goes ______(insert Vista's startup sound here). Acer says it's new Ferrari 1200 notebook "conveys the look and feel of a F1 racecar" with a "unique ventilation design that echoes the exhaust pipes of F1 cars." Plenty more comparisons are made in the press release, which you can read here .
Underneath the hood (or inside the chassis - it doesn't ship with a real hood) Acer opted to go with an AMD Turion X2 Ultra dual-core processor with 2MB cache and an AMD M780G chipset. Graphics are fueled with ATI's Radeon HD 3200, and the portable rig supports up to 4GB of DDR2 memory. A SATA hard drive, Acer's Bio-Protection fingerprint reader, and a 12.1-inch LCD display with LED backlighting round out the notable features.
Aesthetically, the Ferrari 1200 comes with a carbon-fiber cover with a wave pattern, "while the soft-touch coating and the velvety texture of the interior ensure ergonomic comfort." Even the touchpad comes decked out, constructed of anodized-metal to resemble the brake and acceleration pedals of the real deal.
