Sirs and Maams, we’re giving away an ACER Ferrari One 200 this week

EDIT: People asked why no video entries. Well I don’t want video to compete with photo. I’ll see if we can do video for another round =)

OK kids, let’s go. This is definitely a prize we’re not planning to give away to charity. Say hello to ACER’s Ferrari One 200. It’s one of those rare machines that run on an AMD Processor which means that you’re getting a great gaming rig at an insanely affordable price. ACER is launching this beast of a machine this month. Just look at it! SRP PHP39,990.00

I’m posting the full press release:

Ferrari One 200 – Zooming fast along the road to innovation

If it were a race to total innovation in the information technology sphere, then Acer’s Ferrari One 200 would definitely zoom ahead of the pack.

Reflecting the award-winning Ferrari’s spirit of passion, exquisiteness, speed, and performance when it comes to racing, the Acer Ferrari One 200totally emulated these traits in terms of mobile computing that goes beyond perfection.

Exuding an exclusive yet exuberant style reserved for the strong in mind and character, the Ferrari One 200 is indeed remarkable in the truest sense of the word. Toting an 11.6-inch high-definition with high brightness TFT LCD screen and less-than-one-inch-thick frame, don’t be fooled by this sexy, ultra-portable notebook for it delivers superb performance that would surely make onlookers drool with envy.

The AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor L310 (1.20GHz, 1MB L2 cache) and an AMD M780G chipset are at the heart of the Ferrari One 200’s engine. It has a 3GB DDR2 memory that’s upgradeable to 4GB. Video power is courtesy of an ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics with up to 2047MB of HyperMemory, with 256 + 128MB dedicated and up to 1663MB shared system video memory.

Despite its diminutive size, the Ferrari One 200 boasts of a 500GB SATA hard drive for all your photos, videos, and other important files that need storage. Plus, with both a built-in Gigabit LAN and 802.11a/b/g/Draft N Wi-Fi certified wireless LAN, the Ferrari One 200 guarantees swift connectivity that makes connecting to the Internet seem just like zooming to 100 kph in under 6 seconds so you can zip ahead to Web browsing bliss.

The Ferrari One 200 also promises a genuine championship performance with up to 5 hours of battery life on a full charge. Though smaller than your usual magazine, it comes with a checkered palm rest finish for enhanced typing comfort, a full-size Acer FineTip keyboard, and a power button that lights up in exciting Ferrari red. Also, its special rear design makes it easy to grab for more ease of use and mobility in its already-ultraportable frame. Add to that a multi-in-1 card reader for more storage options, multi-gesture touchpad for effortless navigation, and flexible connectivity through its 3 USB ports.

The Ferrari One 200’s passion for entertainment can’t be ignored either. Its Acer CineCrystal LED-backlit bright and beautiful display assures 33 percent more energy savings yet provides optimum viewing pleasure when watching movies or playing your favorite games, coupled with 3rd generation Dolby Home Theater surround sound for an even more compelling multimedia experience.

Plus, if you’re an avid fan of first-class, high-definition viewing amid your mobile lifestyle, the Ferrari One 200’s DynaVivid Graphics Dock allows for multiple connectivity to various video output, from projector, monitor and TV. At a light 3.31 pounds or 1.5 kilograms, that’s an incredible amount of flexibility in your hands.

So go zoom ahead and get yourself behind this beautiful baby. Once you’re on-board, you’re definitely going to have the competition eat your dust as you go full speed ahead in the race for innovation in the field of information technology.

This computer is sick. SICK! Which is why we’re going to up the ante, giving a chance to other talents who have requested contests other than writing. Not my idea. Someone did mention it was about time that other talents were utilized for the contests 🙂

PHOTOS YOU MAY WANT TO USE: Here’s the link.

SPECS:

ACER Ferrari One 200

THE RULES

1. Using the tools of your computer and / or the power of the Internet at your disposal, create a poster / for the ACER Ferrari One 200. I have provided some photos (you can easily find more photos of the “Acer Ferrari One 200” online), product information and specs which you may (or may not) use. You have more chances of winning if you really just go and have fun with it and not take yourself too seriously with this one. I just have one request: please don’t bash the product.

2. Entries will be submitted in the comments section. You can submit your entry by sending it via a link to the photo (suggest you use sites like imgur.com) . You can submit as many as you want. You may submit entries in moving GIF format as well. Again, links, no email submissions!

3. Validity date for entries is between now and 11:59PM of Sunday, January 23 2011.

4. No, this won’t be used for official ACER promotional material.

5. This is a nationwide contest but the winner should be able to pick up the computer from ACER Philippines in Makati.

6. I have the final say. If there are any discrepancies, my decision is final. But yes we are giving this away to a winner. I’m excited!

P.S. If you’re looking for inspiration, here you go.

My 6th and last entry for today, coz I have lot of other things to do:

http://i.imgur.com/27NjO.jpg

Thanks, I had so much fun doing all these entries. Hindi po ako marunong but I’ve tried my best to discover how. How I wish I know how to use the GIF. Marami sana akong ideas eh.
Well, good luck to all of us participants. May the best and truly deserving win. God bless po!

I must say that this is a great game! It’s definitely a nice challenge and also a great stress reliever after a hard day at work. Keep it up! =D

Wow! The entries are BLOWING UP! Haha. Had my 9th & 10th na already but I guess I need more editing para hindi paulit ulit ang upload. 🙂

@nemory,nice effort man! but i think you should’ve tried submitting it for a video contest. gif format will degrade the quality of your work. i just hope a still graphic will win this one. pero effort talaga ang lahat. nice!goodluck everyone.

@ehmjay, atleast naka GIF format naman po siya, kasi ang video convertible naman sa GIF e, nung una wala pa si sir ng allow GIF but n0w pwede na kaya ayun .hehe. .
Anyways thanks po.
