I am not willing rather wishing to purchase this machine. I belive that its getting obsolete now, anyhow I want it.
Please tell me, can I use it as desktop replacement?
Like I attach my 17" Monitor, old keyboard and mouse with machine, when I am using it in my home and just put it in bag when go out side? If yes, then Please tell me that does connecting external monitor cause any problem? Does it reduce performance? as VGA now have to support two display at a time.
HEAT, I just threw off my desktop
2.8 Ghz HT
1GB Ram DDR (440Mhz or so)
120 GB SATA around 7000 RPM
Nvidia Fx-5200 (128MB)
That used to get hot and was not reliable at all, I tried everything on that, but never fixed any problem. I remember maximum was 80C, inner temperature of processor and maximum for overal was around 60C.
So I was just wondering about 70C issue, I live in Pakistan and its prety hot here. Can I play BF2 or C&C Zero Hour continiously for long time?
Will it cause any hardware problem, if I play too much, while my machine is getting hot. Will it cause to melt down rubber near touch pad?
If I get it some how, I will try not to mess up with its looks. Rustican after one year or so, does your machine looks odd now? you were talking about that some kind of color was getting off from keyboard?
I am very rough user and it will be my first LAPTOP, I am in habbit of keeping my machine 24-hours a day on, I have WiFi setup already installed and willing to use that too.
What does that silver box do? that Acer shows during its virtual tour, saying that Acer-Ferrari 4000 can be used as desktop replacement?
Can I change the VGA card, RAM, HD ? TO X1600, 667MHZ, 7600 RPM?
what does that PC Card SLot do? What kind of cards can be fixed in?
Please also send one notification on firstname.lastname@example.org
as I am willing to have some more information, regarding this machine. I was basically interested in Acer Aspire 5670, and was reading its reviews, so just got an idea to read its reviews too, people were not happy with heating problem of that system. Please tell me that does performance goes down when it heats?
I was just wondering that it has got only 1MB chache and Memory speed is only 333MHz, how can it compete with computers having greater chache and greater memory speed and having 7-Series Nvidia.
I have seen some old notebooks, they have native resolution, if you adjust lower or higher resolution, other than they are designed for they will mess up with resolution and will not show good results, is it the same case with Acer Ferrari too? IF yes? then what is the best resolution for it, I belive that for 15" screen more than 1024*768 resolution will be difficult to manage.
My total budget is $1250. I think I will be able to have it.
Thanks In Advance.
