    It will be my non-work related fun computer and its FRESH

    HA HA HA...! If you're still having trouble, email it to me and i'll post it... i'd personally like to see it, as well... We've already seen it, but i want to see some more intimate pictures of it... What are your thoughts on its performance...?

    Ike, i'm not sure if there's a website with specs of the machine, but the last time this was brought up here, someone posted the specs... They're really nothing comparable from what i recall; it's just popular 'cause it's a "Ferrari"... :)

    ..and all that trouble for those dark pics..I better straighten up my act.
    Anyway, it pretending to look Ferrariish I thought al least it needed to be quick so I opted for the 2G RAM uppgrade and it is the fastest computer I ever used. Also like the startup sound from a passing Formula 1 car, nice.

    Thanks for the link and the pics.

    Anderson, did you buy yours from the people selling them on Ebay? If not could you tell me where you bought yours?

    I was leaning toward a powerbook but I really like the way this one looks. This one seems to have everything I am looking for. I need to decide if I want to use windows to get the Ferrari look.

    thanks again

    Andersen, it was my pleasure... That's a really nice computer... Does it come with Ferrari-related icons or wallpaper or screen savers...? i think we're all curious to know if Ferrari influenced the machine at all, besiDES badging the exterior and the mouse...

    I love how the laptop looks. However, I wish it was built by IBM or DELL instead of Acer. Anyways, I wish I could have one, but I'd rather buy a faster computer for half the price. I love the shields on the notebook :)

    I just pre-ordered it at friends office/computer store over here in Norway, right after he called me telling me about it. I dont know how many they will make but he said 300 was to come to up here and they were all pre-sold on arrival.

    It has a Ferrari F1 influenced desktop and screensaver with several closeups of F1 car in motion. Obviously I dont know how to upload screenshots of it or I would.
    The link to Ferrari.it was allready on the desktop with a proper S.F shield icon.
    The underside of it is also in silver with red rubber "feets"
    Its probably the only computer I will hang on to after its outdated so its something there.

    I cannot believe that Ferrari lends its name to such an ugly computer. They don't even seem to get the color right (or is that the color calibration)
