Here's Chris Pirillo talking about his Ferrari One machine:
TP hasn't received any review unit from Acer Philippines just yet, so we'll just quote what CNET had to say about Ferrari One 200:
Like its road-going cousins, the Ferrari One will polarize opinion. In many respects, it's the best-looking Netbook we've come across, and many will look upon its owner with an envious eye. But its bawdy, not-quite-Ferrari-red lid will attract plenty of negative attention too, and its large logo will mark you out as the sort of person that owns Ferrari key rings and baseball caps because they can't afford the real thing. You have our blessing to buy the Ferrari One, but be prepared to have people give "mine's bigger than yours" looks.
Acer Ferrari One weighs in at 3.3 lbs, by the way.
