Taiwanese giant Acer said it has started selling the 11.6-inch Ferrari One notebook in the US.

The machine costs $600 and includes an Athlon 64 X2 L310 dual core chip, running at 1.20GHz, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3200 graphics, 4GB of DDR2 memory, a 250GB hard drive, a multi digital card reader, 802.11x wi-fi, a webcam, two stereo speakers, three USB 2.0 ports, and up to five hours battery life using a six cell Li-on battery.
