have my eye on an Acer Ferrari - the 4005wlmi - with AMD 64 bit cpu 2ghz, 1GB ram, DVD-DL etc

it looks sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet, though is not all about looks. Has DVI out, plus awesome screen res etc. Anyone got something else to recommend in its place? Problem is the Ferraris cost a bit - about 1250 minimum.


oh, forgot to mention that will be using it for video editing / compositing / 3D work, so having a good vid card is essential. Ferrari comes with top notch card, whereas most use integrated graphics or shared memory. OR they use good kit but weigh the earth. this one is 2.8kg
