Acer Ferrari One FO200-1799 (Athlon 64 X2 L310 1.2GHz review: Acer Ferrari One FO200-1799 (Athlon 64 X2 L310 1.2GHz

The Acer Ferrari One ran for 3 hours and 27 minutes on our video playback battery drain test, which is respectable for an 11-inch Netbook-size system without a protruding extended battery. In our less grueling real-world Web surfing and Office doc use, we found we could use the Ferrari One on and off all day, without worrying too much about battery life.

Acer includes an industry-standard one-year parts-and-labor warranty with the system. The company sells extended warranties through its Web site, offering two additional years for $99, or $199 with "accidental damage" included. Support is accessible through a 24-7 toll-free phone line, an online knowledge base, and driver downloads, but we've always found Acer's support Web sites confusing to navigate.
