Acer considering to make low-cost PCs

Posted on Friday, November 23 2007 @ 13:26:19 CET by

PC maker Acer has formed a team to work on low-cost PC projects, DigiTimes reports. It looks like the PC maker wants to launch products similar to the Asus Eee PC but the firm is still trying to determine whether this is feasible:
However, Lin highlighted that the company has not yet budgeted any R&D funds for the low-end PC project and Acer will still focus on its typical notebook product lineup in 2008.

To launch a low-cost PC or not is a matter of economic scale, indicated Lin, adding Acer expects global notebook shipments to reach 120 million units in 2008 with Asustek Computer's Eee PC only accounting for 2-3% of the overall market. The actual market for low-cost PCs is still uncertain, Lin pointed out, and this is the major reason that the company is still considering whether to launch products.

Lin also stated that the technological barriers towards developing a low-cost PC are not high and so Acer should be able to launch suitable products once the company completes its feasibility evaluations.
