Acer America has debuted the new 11.6-inch Ferrari One notebook to the US market.

Fueled by Vision technology from AMD, the notebook delivers highly responsive, balanced multitasking performance via the AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor with low-power CPU designed for long-lasting battery power, according to Acer. ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics provides high-definition visual quality coupled with up to 4GB of DDR2 667MHz system memory to drive digital and multimedia features and other demanding applications with ease. The Ferrari One comes equipped with Windows 7 Home Premium and 250GB hard drive.

Along with its 11.6-inch HD widescreen display, the Ferrari One notebook features an ultra-portable design, measuring about one inch and weighing 3.31-pounds. The look and feel of Formula 1 racing is shown throughout the notebook's detailed design, including the checkered palm rest extending into a comfortable full-size keyboard, the metallic LED-lit power button and yellow prancing horse emblem, Acer highlighted.

The notebook features enhanced stereo speakers and Dolby Home Theater Audio Enhancement, which deliver vibrant surround sound and bass effects to bring a true cinema-style experience to movies, music and casual games, Acer claimed.

The Acer Ferrari One FO200-1799 notebook is available now via Acer's authorized resellers and at major retailers nationwide, with prices beginning at US$599.99. The Ferrari One comes with a one-year limited warranty.
