Front of the Ferrari

The plastic catch used to secure the screen in the closed position seems rather flimsy, but it really doesn't have to do much so I suppose it is realistically of little concern.

The front of the Ferrari 4005 laptop is overflowing with indicators and connectors and has a nice, high-tech vibe about it. The 5-in-1 media card reader takes up much of the left side, followed by the built-in microphone and infrared ports (it's nice to see the IR port on the front of the laptop, though there are few uses for it in reality).

HD and battery LED indicators are next, followed by the headphone and MIC input audio jacks. Finally, a pair of lit, translucent buttons control and indicate the status of the Bluetooth and 802.11G WiFi network adaptors. At the outer edges on either side of the notebook are the two small stereo speakers.

The Bluetooth and Wireless LAN control keys buttons can be pressed to enable and disable their respective connections, and when enabled, indicate the status of the connection using LED indicators set behind the buttons that glow bright orange and blue.

The right side of the Acer Ferrari 4005 WLMi notebook is mostly occupied by the slot loading 8x DVD-RW/CD-RW optical drive (Panasonic Model: UJ-845-C), but three USB 2.0 ports and the DC power jack also share the space. The Kensington notebook security port is also present. I'm not so sure that having three of the system's four USB ports on the right side is a good idea, considering that this is the side most people will mouse on.

Given that the Acer Ferrari 4005 WLMi comes with a sleek red wireless bluetooth mouse, we can let this one go.
