Acer has unveiled the new 12.1-inch Ferrari 1200 ultra-portable notebook manufactured with carbon fiber, a material used in racer cars. Ferrari 1200 is powered with AMD’s dual-core processor with a 4GB RAM. No information on pricing and availability has been shared by Acer, but we can expect this Ferrari notebook model to be expensive.
Acer Ferrari 1200 has a 12.1-inch CrystalBrite LCD with LED backlight support for decreased power consumption as compared to older screens. The notebook is powered with an AMD Turion X2 Ultra dual-core processor
with a 2MB total cache and an AMD M780G chipset with ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics.
To support an intensive gaming or multimedia experience, Ferrari 1200 packs in 4GB DDR2 memory in a dual-channel mode. Also, a SATA HDD with a large storage capacity is packed in with an Acer Bio-Protection fingerprint reader, for the security of the notebook and the data stored in it.
Use of DDR3 memory or SSD would have been an impressive configuration that would have done justice to the Ferrari brand name. Acer bundles a Bluetooth wireless mouse, video conferencing software, an Acer Crystal Eye webcam, and an Xpress VoIP phone with PureZone technology for better VoIP call quality.
Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate, Vista Business, or Vista Home Premium will be pre-installed in the Ferrari 1200 notebook. Hopefully, this notebook will offer better features and an improvement in performance as compared to the Ferrari 1100, which has a similar configuration.
