When people see you moving around in a Ferrari they know you are an obvious millionaire, but when they see you sporting a lappy with a Ferrari symbol on it, that’s when you are making a statement. Laptops have been a gizmo that almost everyone carries around but those who own Acer’s Ferrari 5000 and 1000 carry it with attitude and style. It is a new thing and it’s in vogue. The former a 15.4-inch carbon fiber desktop replacement, outfitted with a 1.3-megapixel camera, 802.11a/b/g, Bluetooth 2.0, gigabit Ethernet, and a dual-layer slot-loading DVD±RW drive — or, eventually an HD DVD drive (what, no Blu-ray?); the latter is a 12.1-inch widescreen machine that weighs in at 3.7 pounds. We’re not clear yet on price, availability, or what it’ll look like up in the face.
Now if you are wondering what can match the standards of this one, I guess it’s the Ferrari wheels. Get the red package that will make everyone green with envy.
