While passing through the security checkpoints of the airport i had to take the laptop to out of the case and pass it through the X-rap machine. No worries, the X-rays won't damage the laptop or the information on the HD.
Use it while waiting for my flight and another guy with a Dell notebook came up to me complementing me on the looks of the Ferrari and asking me where i had gotten it from. He never heard of Acer before and i showed him the specs and what the Ferrari could do up close. By the time my flight started boarding the guy was ready to order a Ferrari for himself.
On vacation with a bunch of friends, everyone had a camera and were taking pictures galore. The memory card reader worked like a charm as i compled all the pictures from all their cameras be is Memory stick, or SD cards. Then i burned a DVD for everyone when it was time to go home.
I was complimented a few more times while on my trip on the looks of the Ferrari. Few people heard of Acer before but all left with a good impression of what the Ferrari was about.
To date the Ferrari 4005 has done everything i expected it too. It provided solid performance in a mobile package. I definitely didn't want to have to lug around a 17" notebook through check points in the airport and have to cram it under an airplane seat. I'm definitely happy with my purchase and hope my experiences help others make buying decisions in the future.

I've owned three top of the line Acer and all of them I was more than satisfied with.
I love me new Acer Ferrari 4000 is everything I wanted it to be. I was waiting for a widescreen Ferrari and it arrived.
Everyone I talk to has never even heard of Acer brand, when I tell them they have no idea.
Acer to me on their top of the line notebooks produce quality and top notch build. With the notebooks tuned for performance, no extra crap to slow it down.
Glad you happy w/ your Ferrari Rustican as I am. I have to mine out of my house yet or dorm. Lid looks like it would get strached easily. Have you gotten any or noticed any marks on your lid?
I wanna keep mine look clear as a mirror. I wish they put a clear plastic cover over it in the package.

Great review Rustican! Another question regarding heat - how comfortable is your laptop when placed on bare skin (ie, it's sitting on your lap while you wear shorts). How hot does it get that way when playing games?

If possible I would like to be able to stop or make the fan run slower.
Is it possible to control the fan in some way?
Anybody have any suggestions or ideas?
