Acer Ferrari = you pay the price for looks, its just like, you may find Honda's manufacturing better engines, but they lack jaw dropping looks like ferrari has, so ferrari has taken advantage of looks, same applies to laptop.
at this price, you can get best in most expensive laptops, that are of course IBM's.
else many manufacturers will give u good hardware in this price.
paint yourself your laptop in RED.
Acer Mercedes Benz, Acer Ferrari, Acer Lambourghini, S***.
