Acer to add 12-inch, dual-core laptop to Ferrari line

updated 03:05 pm EDT, Mon September 11, 2006

Acer 12-inch Ferrari

Acer frequently touts its Ferrari line as an alternative to the largely conservative laptop designs of other system builders, but its latest introduction may reflect a new advance in technology as well as style. The 12-inch Acer Ferrari 1000 relies on not just visual cues from the supercar manufacturer but also its emphasis on lightweight materials. Acer's new system uses a carbon fiber body that reduces the traveling weight to 3.6 pounds. Performance is also as quick for the size courtesy of a 2GHz Athlon 64 X2 TL-60, 2GB of RAM, and up to 160GB of storage. Bluetooth 2.0, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and a 5-in-1 card reader are also standard. The only concession made in the design is the optical drive: the included DVD rewritable drive is an external Firewire unit rather than built-in. Official pricing and availability have not yet been announced.
