Sporting a 1.8Ghz AMD Turion, a gig of RAM and a 100GB HDD, the Acer Ferrari 4000, no longer flashing bright red as its predecessor the 3200 did, is a seriously fast notebook. It features the very impressive X700 Mobile from ATI, and has a DVD burner as well. It looks decent, and according to the article, gets fairly decent battery life to boot. Not common in a laptop. The Register's review goes into more detail about the laptop, including battery life benchmarks when doing common tasks. While playing a DVD, it got close to 3 1/2 hours of battery life. Outperforming a like-laptop using a 2Ghz Pentium M, this is a very decent machine. The Turion got a lot of bad press when it initially hit the market, but it seems to be coming of age. The recent lineups with that chip have been much more impressive.
