Acer: Netbooks will not die

Posted on Saturday, October 02 2010 @ 00:21:44 CEST by

Acer Taiwan president Scott Lin told the press that the netbook market won't die, but added that the market is unlikely to see further growth.
Commenting on market watchers' pessimistic view toward netbook's future as PC players are turning aggressive about the tablet PC market, Acer Taiwan president Scott Lin at a press conference noted that netbooks will not die. After Intel upgraded its Atom processor, netbook's price/performance ratio saw a significant improvement and the segment is expected to maintain a stable share of the notebook market, separate from tablet PCs.

Lin forecasts that global netbook shipments in 2010 will still be about 40 million units, accounting for 20% of the overall notebook market. In 2011, Lin believes that the netbook market is unlikely to see further growth and will remain at the same scale with only Acer and Asustek Computer left to prop up the market since both Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Dell are not active toward the segment.
