Pininfarina designed this? It doesn’t look bad, but there’s nothing about the design that makes it special. Sure the integrated speaker grill having the same color as the keyboard might be considered something unique. But, I’d take a MacBook‘s design over this one and Apple just had their designers design the MacBook. Acer should consider just using its own designers. The Aspire Timeline 3810T looks pretty good! I think Pininfarina should stick to cars, like the Ferrari California below.
