The Acer Ferrari 4000 is the world’s first notebook to harness carbon fibre technology pioneered and perfected in the world of Formula One and in the aerospace industry.

“Technology is essential to achieve objectives””, says Jean Todt, General Manager of Scuderia Ferrari. “”We believe that innovation leads to constant evolution, and we are delighted that one of our Official Suppliers places such importance on the research and development of advanced technological solutions.”

The carbon fibre casing of the Ferrari 4000 notebook which comes in black and exclusive ‘red Ferrari’, is based on the latest AMD Turion 64 Mobile Technology for thin and light notebooks, delivering improved performance from its 64-bit architecture.

Characteristics include a large luminous 15.4” TFT Wide display supported by the extra-fast ATI MOBILITY RADEON X700 graphics chipset with 128MB DDR memory on PCI Express architecture, 1GB DDR memory and 100GB HDD, as well as a DVD-Super Multi double-layer drive unit and a 5-in-1 card-reader, all managed by the powerful AMD processor, guaranteeing top performance.
