The Ferrari Of Notebook Computers Is — An Acer?

Although we're less geeky than our 'puter loving cousin — we're all for the cross-brand marketing — especially when it involves the Italian stallion, Ferrari. And to us, nothing says Ferrari like...Acer? Like we said, we ain't Gizmodo — but to us Acer doesn't so much scream "Ferrari." Especially when you hear how these notebooks have been Ferrarized:

The exclusive carbon fiber casing of the Ferrari 5000 and Ferrari 1000 conceals the very latest...performance and elegance gained from the alliance between two companies constantly focused on innovation and renowned for pushing the boundaries of technology.

Yup. Nothing says Ferrari like a case that shatters on impact. Just ask Stefan Eriksson. (Hat tip to Tim!)
