Yeah, the Ferrari series are basically a spiffed-up version of the top-of-the-line Travelmate series. I guess we can call the Acer Ferrari 4000 the Acer Travelmate 8104 done right, with much neater design.
While the Acer Ferrari 4000 looks really stunning, it's not perfect. First of all it should be equipped with a Turion 64 MT-37 (2.0GHz, 25W) and NOT Turion 64 ML-37 (2.0GHz, 35W), and 1GB DDR400 and NOT 1GB DDR333.
The rechargeable Bluetooth wireless optical mouse they've included is a very cool addition though. The black carbon fibre also looks cool, but in my opinion not as slick as the red paint job on the previous models.
