Acer Ferrari 1200
Acer Thursday updated its Ferrari notebooks with the Ferrari 1200. The 12-inch portable is the third generation of the notebook and keeps the carbon fiber, F1-themed shell but updates to a newer AMD Turion X2 Ultra processor and gets a newer mainboard platform that includes faster Mobility Radeon video. It continues to sport an LED-backlit display and holds as much as 4GB of DDR2 memory in higher-end trim.
The PC maker avoids providing detailed specs but continues to build in a webcam and bundles a Bluetooth-based VoIP phone for making calls through Skype or other Internet calling services. Pricing is unknown, though the launch has begun in the UK first and should spread to the US as well as other countries in the near future. [via Engadget]
