If it is same as the car, it's only good when it rains.

I wonder how many people will buy such a thing. I'm an F1 fan but would'nd lash out on one of those.

Probably, a very good publicity stunt for Acer.

That was an exciting race, even if the championship was pretty much sown up after the US GP.

I was happy to see the Ferrari team win in Japan, The Ferraris were one of the only reasons i followed the F1 season this year, and now that the WRC season is over i can cancel my cable... till next year any way.

>>the Ferrari 3000 sports a "powerful AMD processor", though Acer didn't say which one

Anybody know what it has under the hood? If it doesn't do 0 to 60 in 4.0 it would be a huge disappointment.

Acer launched this thing to take advantage of the new Google algo.

Completely UNRELATED keywords: laptop computer ferrari

Brilliant, I say!

Though I am a big fan of AMD cpu's, the XP-M is no Pentium-M.
Laptops using XP-M have battery times that are considerably worse than their Intel counterparts.

My next notebook might be the first Intel CPU driven PC I've owned since the 8088 ;)

AMD's rule! (so do Ferrari's)

Anyone play the Need for Speed 3 game?
surprisingly, the best car in that game is a McLaren F1, I tried racing a Ferrari 350F with McLaren F1, McLaren is way better...
Anyone know the truth in real life?

Which Ferrari are you talking about? The 355F of the 550M?

Either way, the McLaren F1 is a much faster car. It does 0-60 in 3.2 and will throw you over 240 mph. A seriously quick car and at $1m new, you'll have to be one hell of an SEO to afford one!

Gmorgan, I am glad you know SEO's out there earn a lot that they can afford anything. :-)

Let's all be SEO Guys and then we can buy a few stuff like this. :-)

GO, Ferrari, GO!

Ferrari = The Force
McLaren = Dark Side
