Acer Ferrari One 200 spotted and priced




Saw this ultraportable Ferrari-inspired notebook by Acer the other day so I came back and took some photos/videos as well as the specs and price. See more details of the Acer Ferrari One 200 below.

The body is designed similar to the Acer Aspire One AO751 and the Acer Timeline 1810TZ we showed earlier.


Acer Ferrari One 200
11.6″ display screen @ 1366×768 pixels
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core L310 @ 1.2GHz
3GB DDR2 RAM
500GB SATA HDD
ATI Radeon HD 3200 with 384MB dedicated (max 1.5GB shared)
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR
1.3MP webcam
3x USB, ATI XGP connector, VGA, HDMI
6-cell battery (up to 5 hours)

It has Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installed with a suggested retail price of Php39,500 (check out RSun Computers). Got pretty curious with the L310 CPU and the Radeon HD3200 so I asked them to run Windows Experience Index. Here’s what I got:

Not bad, considering an Atom Z550 2.0GHz has a sub-score of 2.9.

    This is a notebook, not a car, I would rather buy a reasonably priced notebook and put on a Ferrari wallpaper instead.

  2. This looks like a netbook. but considering the stats, other than the low Athlon clock speed. These is to a beefy netbook.

  3. Pusang Kulog says:

    Pretty good for a mobile computer…

    I don’t care if it’s a netbook or a notebook. To me it’s not about the category. It’s about more power with less weight!

  4. lolipown says:

    This is the most decent unit for the 12″ notebook I’ve yet to see. Price is none too shabby too.

  5. Ric says:

    @Philippine Yobbo – you hit the nail right on the head big time!

  6. Reel Advice says:

    This is reasonably priced already for a 12-incher considering the specs. Not a bad deal from the folks at Acer!

  7. Sherwin says:

    if it lasts 5 hours, i’m good. but most probably under real curcumstances i think its only going to be a 3.5 hour battery life at most.

  8. jill says:

    What’s with the “Ferrari” tag? Inspired by it in any way, name recall, or old-fashioned snobbery?

  9. Erin says:

    @jill: they included some “limited” edition ferrari modifications. like the reported mutilation of the mousepad.

  10. JBrowne says:

    I’ve bought one in Dubai with almost the same specs except the hard disk is smaller (320 gb). Battery life is good only for 3.5 hours but this is way faster than your average netbook.

  11. Jhay says:

    You are paying for the Ferrari badge with this one.

    This is currently the best performing netbook so far. The Windows Experience Index of 2.9 of the Ferrari One can’t be compared with the 2.9 of an Atom Z550. Essentially, that is comparing a whole computer to a processor. The 2.9 WEI of the Ferrari One is just the lowest score of the 5 categories involved, w/c is used to determine if a program can be run with the system. What should be compared to the Z550 score of 2.9 is the score of Ferrari’s processor which is 3.6, which is quite good.
    I’ve been using my Ferrari One for almost 2 weeks. Started out great until I ran into some slow downs. I restored the factory defaults then reinstalled all my programs and games. Turned out it’s not my fault it slowed down. I think Windows Updates loaded something which caused the netbook to have problems once it resumed from standby/hibernation. Games I loaded so far: Need For Speed Underground & Simcity 4. I tried World In Conflict but it won’t execute.

  13. lolipown says:

    @reymatt
    Just point out that the WEI is determined by the lowest score, in the ferrari’s case, it’s the gfx card, for other netbooks its a lot of things (slow drive, the atom proc, the intel gpu, etc).

    I’m planning on getting one, where did you get yours? And price if it’s not too much

  14. jojo says:

    sir yuga, may you do a comparison between this acer and MSI U210? thanks

  15. ReyMatt says:

    &lolipown
    Actually, the lowest is not the GPU itself (actually the score is good) but the Aero capability score. Price is still almost P40K, got mine at PC-Live Megamall. Acer shop at Megamall has one also, however there’s no free mobile broadband unit. More shops are selling the Ferrari One now than it was 2 weeks ago…

    Just don’t turn on automatic Windows Update before backing up everything. I installed lots of programs and installed the latest updates, only to have unexplained slow downs after resuming from sleep/hibernate mode. I think it’s more of a Windows 7 problem than Acer’s fault. I restored the netbook to it’s factory defaults than reinstalled all of my previous programs. It’s still fast, so I don’t want to turn on automatic Windows Update until I get an external DVD at the end of the month.

  16. lolipown says:

    @ReyMatt
    Thanks for the tip. Looks like I’ll be getting this tomorrow :D

    Your problem does sounds like a driver issue more than a Windows problem though.

    I got the Ferrari One 200 a couple of weeks back and had been loving it. The size is definitely a plus but having the power along with it is a winner. The only problem I’ve been having is with the Windows Media Player and Windows Media Center. I’ve been getting intermittent problems with it. I think it’s a WMP 12 issue … research on the internet doesn’t yield anything that will make the problem go away. So I decided to just ditch WMP and look for a different player as a solution.
    Since it came with Windows 7 – I must say that I’ve had really good experience with this OS. Boot up is fast … unlike the previous Windows versions which take forever to boot up. All apps also launch quickly.

    hmmm MSI and Acer

    price MSI – 21,500
    Price Acer – 39,500

    Same battery life hmmm

  19. ReyMatt says:

    MSI with Atom processor and Intel GMA vs Ferrari One with dual core AMD and Radeon GPU? The latter is much more expensive than my 1st netbook (Aspire One 250), but I’m very happy with my Ferrari One. Unless we’re talking about a MSI with dual core + ION setup, than that would be a great deal for P 21500.

  20. Aimee says:

    I bought mine, just few hours ago! =)
    and I’m so happy with it!! yipee!!! =))

    Thank you bonus! hehe..

    I just have mine for 2 days now, it is a very comfortable netbook and older (3d games like Tomb raider aniversary)run smoothly.

    Oh yeah, my WEI score is 3.3 (graphics score is the lowest)

  22. ReyMatt says:

    Negyuh, did you do something to get a WEI of 3.3? An Windows or Acer update? Or did you change some settings in your environment?

  23. Negyuh says:

    @ Reymatt: I put in 2x 2Gb ddr2 RAM (that’s 4Gb total)and the score changed from 3.0 to 3.3 (on the graphics score)

    So not only memory has an advantage by a memory upgrade. the memory channels change from single to dual. that’s the trick…

  24. ReyMatt says:

    Has anybody updated their system with Windows Update? I need feedback since mine slowed down after I made a large update. I couldn’t fix it so I restored it to factory defaults.

  25. UnggoyGwapo says:

    I am planning to buy one. Is it available in SM Dasmarinas?

    Well got to say that my wife got me a great Christmas gift. It was the Acer Ferrari One. We had the family gathering and I took pictures of the Christmas get together and decided to use the Windows Live Movie Maker. All I have to say is that I was able to produce a nice DVD of the Christmas event and burn it to a external DVD I have had and play it back on the Plasma TV while everyone was still here. I have a Macbook and always use the iMovie and iDVD to do this, but I can say. If your on the road and doing trade shows, events, etc… and need to quickly do a movie video with the Ferrarri you can with no problem. My lowest score was 3.3. My Acer Ferrarri One came with the 4GB RAM already. I only wish if there was a bigger battery for it. I will using this for work during the week and I go from jobsite to jobsite and wish it would give you at least the 5 hours they claim. So far I test it and have got 3.5 hrs of battery life with half brightness and Bluetooth on. It would have been nice if this had the Intel SU2300. That would have given this at least 8hrs of battery life, but I know this will never happen since Acer, AMD, sponser the Ferrari One.

    @reymatt I always set my Windows update on all my devices to only notify me of updates and I always choose which ones I install. This way if I see that it has a hardware update I rather do that from either Acer or from what ever your device OEM is. I got a feeling it was a driver that caused that.

  27. Negyuh says:

    i just put in a Intel SSD x25v40 (40Gb)

    win 7 performance specs are now:

    processor: 3.6
    memory: 5.4!
    graphics: 3.3
    Gaming graphics: 4.7
    primary hard disk: 7.5!!

    so the swap file and memory in general also benefits (aside from the spectacular harddisk performance boost) from this disk upgrade.

    Win7 startup from cold boot to usable desktop now clocks in in about 20 seconds
