Reviews for the Acer Ferrari One 200

Acer Ferrari One 200 Review - More than a Netbook
Source: PC Perspective English
Having spent some time testing and using the Acer Ferrari One 200, I would almost consider it more of a notebook replacement than just a netbook. The combination of the AMD Athlon 64 X2 L310 CPU, 3 GB of RAM (Note: Models being sold at retailers feature 4GB of RAM), and Radeon HD 3200 proved to be a potent combination as tests like file compression and PCMark Vantage show its ability to whip through your every day workload.

50% Ferrari One: Plenty of vroom power
Source: Star Techcentral English
If you can look past the missing HDMI port, noisy cooling fan and a price tag that’s not too wallet-friendly, the Ferrari One is really one good-looking and well-designed machine. It also has enough firepower to run HD movies and regular office productivity ­applications smoothly. A brain and looks, all in one package. What more can you ask for?

Source: CNet English
Outside branding on laptops is relatively rare, with occasional appearances by World of Warcraft or MLB baseball teams turning up in paint jobs, but little in the way of overall product design. A rare exception can be found in the race-car-themed laptops put out by Asus (Lamborghini) and Acer (Ferrari). Acer's auto-branded Ferrari One FO200 may look like an 11-inch Netbook, but it sports a dual-core AMD CPU and a mainstream laptop price to match.

Excellent design and features make up for lacklustre performance in the Acer Ferrari One - a cool little laptop. If you'd like to make the Acer Ferrari One your one and only PC, you'll probably find that it's a slightly small and underpowered to handle the job satisfactorily. If you think of it as an on-the-go companion PC, though, it's most impressive. The laptop's slick design, solid features, and adequate performance for its size and weight make it a great buy.

Acer's partnership with Ferrari to build laptops containing Ferrari design elements goes back at least to 2004. The Ferrari One, however, is a totally different machine from the large and expensive Ferrari laptops of the past. Excellent design and features compensate for lackluster performance in a cool little laptop that will have netbook buyers considering something just a little bit bigger.

Just as with many sports cars, owners of the Acer Ferrari One will pay more than they would for a comparable, but less sexy system, and trade in better mileage for a sleek design. Most will choose this ultraportable because of the Ferrari brand and because it offers souped-up graphics, and the $599 price tag—$200 above the Aspire 1410—gives owners the aura of luxury.

80% Acer Ferrari One Netbook - Vroom Vroom Review
Source: Hardware Zone English
Acer's Ferrari range of notebooks have always been hot sellers for the Ferrari Formula One aficionados, and it's a given fact that they have always been priced slightly higher than what you'd expect for an Acer machine. That's fine by us to be honest. After all, it's a premium laptop that sports the Ferrari brand so expect to pay a higher price. After all, you don't pay peanuts for a Ferrari car, do you?

The Acer Ferrari One 200 lives up to its motorsport branding well as it’s the fastest netbook we’ve tested, though it pushes that definition to breaking point. It’s really a well-featured, relatively inexpensive laptop, but the lack lustre battery life and other issuettes mean that it’s not really suitable for business use.

A stylish, Ferrari-branded, AMD based netbook, offering dual-core power. Acer's Ferrari range has traditionally been made up of high-end ultraportables with expensive price tags to match. The Acer Ferrari One is considerably more affordable, bringing the Ferrari brand to the masses. Overall, the Ferrari One is a highly attractive netbook. It's a shame that there aren't more features included as standard, but it still has a lot to offer. We were particularly impressed by the keyboard, screen and overall quality.

If you're searching for proof that the netbook has become a fashion accessory as well as a mere computer, you need look no further than the Acer Ferrari One. With a lid coated in crimson and bearing the familiar logo of the Italian sports car manufacturer, this is one product that seems to put image before all else. A well-built and speedy netbook but battery life is below average.

80% Acer Ferrari One - 11.6in Netbook Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Whichever way you look at it, as a netbook or as an ultra-portable, this is an impressive and enticing proposition. For the price the Acer Ferrari One offers excellent performance - including smooth 1080p video playback - while the balance of features, portability and usability is just right. But it does have weaknesses, namely the lack of HDMI, its innate Ferrari-ness and its okay but not outstanding battery life. It would be foolish to dismiss this machine for these problems alone, but they do just preclude it from an award.

Like the cars on which it's based, the Acer Ferrari One is designed to be fast, fun to use and good-looking, while remaining relatively affordable. But does this £400 mini laptop, which will be available in late October, live up to the legendary Scuderia Ferrari badge, or is it just another lowly, under-performing hunk of cheap netbook plastic? The Acer Ferrari One is a fabulous netbook. Its bold appearance may not be to everyone's taste, but there's no denying that it's easy to use, fast and versatile. It is arguably the best netbook we've ever tested.

Acer missed an obvious but appropriate opportunity by not billing the Ferrari One as the "Ferrari of netbooks." Perhaps it's because Acer doesn't classify the Ferrari One as a netbook at all, even though its screen, keyboard, and size are nearly identical to Acer's 11.6-inch-screened Aspire One netbook. The Ferrari One features standout styling, and it backs up its good looks with excellent performance for a notebook in its size class.

ATI Radeon HD 3200: Onboard (shared Memory) graphics chip (on RS780M chipset) based on the HD 2400 graphics core. It also features the UVD video engine to decode HD videos. Beware: Under Windows XP the HD 3200 may have no 2D accelleration because of a driver problem.
