Acer debuts exclusive Ferrari 3000 notebook

Acer and Scuderia  Ferrari are both dedicated to delivering the most innovate technologies in their respective fields.

The announcement coincides with news of both the Scuderia Ferrari team and Michael Schumacher, both clinching the Formula One racing championship titles for the fifth and sixth consecutive years, respectively, determined at the final stop at the Japanese Grand Prix in Suzuka today.

Gianfranco Lanci, President of Acer Inc.’s International Operations Business Group, and Acer EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) declared, “Innovation and technology have always played a primary role in the world of Formula One racing and IT, that is why Acer has designed a notebook that expresses these characteristics.  Innovation and technological advances are what drive Acer to reach its growth targets.”

“Being appointed as an official supplier to Ferrari represents their recognition of Acer’s quality, and cutting-edge technology.”  Added T.Y. Lay, President of International Operations Business Group, Acer Inc.  “We are most honored to play a role in this partnership between a world-class IT company and the world championship racing team of Formula One.”

“Technology is essential in helping us to reach our targets,” stated Jean Todt, General Director of Ferrari’s Sports Management Division.  “We really appreciate that one of our official suppliers places a strong emphasis on the research and development of technologically advanced solutions.  We firmly believe that innovation leads to a constant evolution.”

An elegant, slender and light chassis in Ferrari red and silver colors, the Ferrari 3000 features a 15-inch TFT screen with higher brightness supported by a speedy graphics engine, ATi RADEON MOBILITY 9200 with 128MB video memory, 512MB DDR RAM and 60GB hard disk, as well as a DVD dual optical solution, all managed by a powerful AMD processor.

“Mobile” represents connectivity-ease under all circumstance, which the exclusive Ferrari 3000 guarantees thanks to wireless connectivity (standard IEEE 802.11g) and PAN with built-in Bluetooth, LAN connections with 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet and phone line support with 56Kbps V.92 modem or fax.

Displaying, managing or storing images and videos, or connecting videos and digital peripherals are made easy with the Ferrari 3000, with its DVD player/burner, quick USB ports, S-Video output, FireWire IEEE 1394 interface and 4-in-1 memory card reader.

The Ferrari 3000 is an elegant, refined and exclusive notebook that perfectly represents the research and innovation efforts of two companies that are so different in terms of business fields, but so similar in their business approach.  Both Acer and Ferrari pay attention to the smallest details, and aim for constant improvement to fulfill customer needs, and achieve business growth.

The estimated price of the Ferrari 3000 is US$1999, excluding VAT and sales taxes, and will be available through Acer’s channel retail stores in selected regions from November 2003.  This limited edition of notebooks will be a rare opportunity for Ferrari fans to add an exclusive item to their Ferrari merchandise collection.  Acer will be accepting advanced orders.
