Acer rolls out another Ferrari laptop

This one has a fingerprint reader for security.


Apparently, and somewhat to our surprise, people are actually buying laptops that bear the nameplates of Italian sportscars--at least those with the Ferrari emblem. There must be some reason that Acer keeps coming up with new models, anyway.

According to the company's German Web site, Acer is introducing the Ferrari 1100 as the latest member of its Ferrari laptop family. The ultralight carbon-fiber laptop has a 12.1-inch screen, AMD Turion dual-core processor, hard drive up to 250GB, Dolby sound system and DVD burner. Laptoping says it even has a fingerprint reader for heightened security.

There's no information on price or availability, which isn't particularly surprising--after all, it is a Ferrari.
