Reviews for the Acer Ferrari 1000

70% Acer Ferrari 1000 12-inch
Source: Laptop Logic English
The Acer Ferrari 1000 is stylish, loaded with features and accessories, and is plenty fast thanks to the AMD dual core processor. Outside of these three accolades, how does one recommend the Ferrari 1000? It is heavy for the 12” ultraportable category, battery life is unimpressive, and the optical drive is external (which could be a pro or con). Gamers need not look this way, due to the meager integrated graphics that you come to expect with a 12” form factor. With an MSRP of $1999 and a one year warranty, the Ferrari 1000 is rather pricey for student and home users, while lacking in other areas for more pricey business users.

70% Acer Ferrari 1000 Series
Source: PC Mag English
The Acer Ferrari 4000 Series is destined to become a popular laptop, with its celebrated Ferrari emblem and race-car design. It's a bit big for frequent travelers, though, and in order for Acer's Ferrari notebooks to count as a full line, there had to be another system. Just like Batman had Robin, the Ferrari 4000 now has a sidekick, and the new guy's got mobility in mind. The ultraportable Acer Ferrari 1000 Series ($1,999 list) gives new meaning to the term "carry-on," as it weighs a scant 3.5 pounds. It's also got a pretty fast engine, which we tech geeks refer to as an AMD Turion 64 X2 processor.

The Acer Ferrari 1000 is a very attractive package that manages to wear the Ferrari badge with pride due to the brute force approach of an AMD Turion X2 ML-60. The sleek style of the Ferrari 1000 certainly has a lot of appeal but you’ll have to put up with an external optical drive, which seems a step backwards when Intel based rivals can integrate one yet are even lighter. But while you might be able to cope with that, the lack of battery life in an ultra-portable is a flaw that could prove harder to ignore.

ATI Radeon Xpress 1150: Faster clocked Xpress 1100 onboard graphics card with x300 core. Should run Vista Aero Glass fluently.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

AMD Turion 64 X2: AMD Turion 64 X2 is intended to be positioned against the Intel Core Duo was presented in 17. May 2006. The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.


TL-60: First in 90nm, later in 65nm produced dual-core processor based on the K8 core. Compareable performance to a 1.8 GHz Core Duo CPU with 1MB Level 2 Cache (Celeron Dual Core e.g.).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


12.1":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.8 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


76%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
