Acer Overtakes Dell In U.S. Sales – Takes Number 2 Spot

The CEO of Acer has recently stated that they will over take Dell and become the #2 computer seller in the world. He must know what he is talking about since recent sales in the U.S. now show that Acer is in the number 2 spot. According to a recent article it also states the following information:

The Taiwan-based computer manufacturer says it does not expect to see a decline in revenue this year over last, meaning that it should clear somewhere in the realm of $17 billion — its 2008 revenue figure. Much of the good news (and sales) hails from Asia, where retail markets have not been as hard hit by the economic insanity of the last year. Moreover, Lanci also said that with these figures, Acer “can finally pass Dell” sometime between this quarter and the next. He also added that the company expects to “breach the gap with HP” when it comes to notebooks, netbooks, and smartphones. So… that means we can expect a ton of Acers this year, right? Right.

    @John Morgan Acer isn’t bad.. it’s just cheaper.. FYI i’m currently on a Dell but also own an Acer. I heard somewhere that 90% of new computer sales are to businesses and students, both looking to get away with the cheapest they can in this market. if Acer satisfies their needs for word processing, then why spend extra on Dell or HP with a high end graphics card to run their screen saver??
