Acer Ferrari One notebook debuts in US

Acer-Ferrari_OneAcer America, part of the world’s second largest PC vendor1, yesterday debuted the new Ferrari One notebook PC to U.S. customers. An Acer exclusive, the Ferrari One is a full-featured, 11.6-inch notebook PC utilizing the same exquisite details and performance features celebrated by Scudetto Ferrari, the world’s most prestigious racing team.

Racing Performance in a Notebook PC

In the true spirit of the Ferrari racing team, the Ferrari One notebook combines performance and extreme portability. Fueled by VISION technology from AMD, the notebook delivers highly responsive, balanced multitasking performance via the AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 dual-core processor with low-power CPU designed for long-lasting battery power. ATI Radeon™ HD 3200 Graphics provides high-definition visual quality coupled with up to 4GB of DDR2 667MHz system memory to drive digital and multimedia features and other demanding applications with ease. The Ferrari One comes equipped with Windows 7 Home Premium, 250GB hard drive and a built-in optical drive.

Along with its 11.6-inch HD widescreen display, the Ferrari One notebook features a sleek, ultraportable design, measuring about one inch thin and weighing only 3.31 pounds. The look and feel of Formula 1 racing is shown throughout the notebook’s detailed design, including the checkered palm rest extending into a comfortable full-size keyboard, the metallic LED-lit power button and yellow prancing horse emblem that perfectly complements the notebook’s red cover. Ferrari enthusiasts will also note the tire-shape grips underneath the notebook’s body, racing-inspired wallpaper and calendar, as well as a quick access key to Ferrari.com.

The notebook features enhanced stereo speakers and Dolby® Home Theater® Audio Enhancement, which deliver vibrant surround sound and bass effects to bring a true cinema-style experience to movies, music and casual games.

The Ferrari One notebook’s integrated 802.11a/b/g/Draft-N wireless technology and Gigabit LAN facilitates smooth and trouble-free emailing and web browsing. The Acer Crystal Eye webcam and Video Conference solution enables high-quality video chats and VoIP with friends, family and work associates, even in noisy environments. The notebook’s Ferrari-engraved Multi-Gesture Touchpad lets users pinch, flick and swirl fingers on the touchpad for intuitive navigation. It also allows users to scroll, zoom in and out and flip through web pages, photos, spreadsheets and more.

“Both Acer and Ferrari have a tradition of designing products built on passion, innovation and performance,” said Chris White, senior director of U.S. business management for Acer America. “The new Ferrari One notebook blends the ideas of racing and technology into a superior PC product.”
