Hands on Use
After all of the benchmarks were done, I spent some quality hands on time with the Acer Ferrari One netbook. I love the looks of this machine, it is in my option one of the sexiest netbooks on the market. The Ferrari theme that Acer uses is for not only the external colors and materials of the machine. The Ferrari theme extends to the software as well. The Ferrari One comes with a Ferrari theme installed with a desktop background that has the Ferrari F1 car and features a calendar that shows right on the desktop.
The netbook also has a Ferrari screensaver that shows different images of the Ferrari F1 car. I wish that the screensaver also had some Ferrari street cars as well; I am not interested in F1 at all. The sound system for the netbook is also Ferrari inspired with revving engines instead of the typical Windows sounds. The Ferrari One is a cool netbook for sure and as you saw in the benchmark section, the netbook has good performance as well.
The LED backlit screen is very glossy, which is a pet peeve of mine for general computer work. However, the screen is perfect for watching video with smooth playback and good color reproduction. Colors are crisp and sharp and the screen has good contrast. The netbook has a great sound system that is much better than the typical netbook. The sound system uses Dolby Home Theater tech and the sound stage the small netbook is capable of is much broader and more immersive than your typical netbook is capable of, even if it lacks bass (which is typical in the segment).
I was very impressed with the performance of the netbook in benchmarks. It performed better than most of the netbooks I have tested and its battery life was right in there. I continue to be impressed by the AMD platform netbooks that I have seen. The keyboard of the Ferrari One is a chicklet style with keys that are spaced well and offer good tactile feedback. For a smaller screen netbook, the keys are large and typing is comfortable.
