Acer blames Dell and HP for poor CULV sales

Posted on Wednesday, December 09 2009 @ 18:30:48 CET by

Acer chairman JT Wang claims the weak demand for ultra-thin notebooks is caused by HP and Dell:
Wang said that current weak market demand for ultra-thin notebooks is mainly due to competitors such as Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Dell dropping their mainstream notebook prices to US$399 to compete. But he stated that ultra-thin notebooks are the product that consumers really need and he hopes Intel will not misjudge the market situation.

Since HP and Dell are not pushing ultra-thin notebooks very hard in the US, they are unable to become the mainstream products in the market. Wang said this could mislead Intel into believing market demand for ultra-thin notebooks is weak.

He used the IT Month 2009 consumer trade fair in Taiwan as an example, stating that about 50% of its notebook sales at the show so far were ultra-thin models, indicating that consumer demand is actually strong.
