Good: Quite neat for size. Better than the atom powered lot
Bad: Battery life, Speakers are rubbish so needs headphones, Overheats and shuts off at random.
Comment: Pity that it overheats cos i could live with rest of the faults. tried Acer but strange silence. The price we pay for a faster processor>
Never mind i can use it to coddle eggs whislt i work :-)
Good: very stylish, easy to type, very fast
Bad: battery doesnt last as long as it says, sound is also very poor n its quite heavy for its size.
Comment: i bought this laptop to take with me when i travel and stuff but unfortunatly the sound quality is really poor. u can barely hear anything so u have to be prepared to buy speakers for this...other than that its a really nice netbook.
Good: price, memory speed storage
Bad: nothing so far as i can see
Comment: i am going to change my E/machines 34 for one in 2011
Good: good performance, fast
Bad: ridiculous ATI XGP port, no HDMI
Comment: If you want to own a fast netbook, just buy it!!!
Good: A BEAST! of a workhorse for such a small package!
Bad: N/A I LOVE it! Could have had a HDMI out but hopefully we'll see that in the Quad-core version ;D
Comment: A BEAST! of a workhorse for such a small package!
It out performs most desktop machines at my workplace without fail. The high-end HD 3D graphics chipset gives excellent 720p resolution when watching films full screen on you 42"+ LCD TV.
Had it runnin 3D Studio Max 2010, 10 Chrome Browser tabs, Office 2010 at the same time as rendering video in Adobe Premiere CS5 to an external 42" LCD while running 720p video playback in Quicktime...
Acer Ferrari One (Dual-Core 64-Bit 250Gb HDD and mine has 3Gb Ram...)
The Best fully functional Netbook computer on the market IMO.
Windows 7 64-bit works a treat! and yes it still runs and supports 32bit apps!
LOVE iT! I take it with me everywhere in a "tiny" satchel ;D
Good: its fast ,fast, fast!
Bad: its a bit showy, fan noise (quiet but still audible)
Comment: I bought this laptop on the back of Rory's review and i have to say i was not disappointed this is a true performer. Games (COD, Far Cry, etc), HD movies running virtual machines, photoshop, video editing this machine does it all with ease. The keyboard is comfortable to use the screen is just the right size, easy to work on and small enough to be mobile. in fact its so good i've just ditched my macbook pro because this can do everything i want for a mere £399. Brilliant simply Brilliant, if your after a netbook this simply blows the competition away.
Good: Fastest netbook so far
Bad: Bit Pricey
Comment: Ive just bought one of these because i liked the Acer 751 very much but found it slow. This model is far from slow. Where the 751 found playing youtube or bbc i player video's a struggle, the Ferrari plays them like a high quality laptop. I find the size of this model perfect for lounging in front of the tv with it on my lap and the display is superb.1366 X 768 0n a 11.6" screen is so sharp and crisp and with this models dual core and ATI HD3200 it really does it justice. Add the 3 GB of ram and windows 7 and its as close to perfect as ive found so far!
