Acer founder Stan Shih predicted in Taiwanese newspaper Commercial Times that US computer brands may be gone in 20 years. Shih believes American PC makers will perish as they are unable to produce the cheap PCs the market demands.
"The trend for low-priced computers will last for the coming years," said Stan Shih, high tech entrepreneur and founder of the island's leading personal computer brand according to the Taipei-based Commercial Times newspaper.

"But US computer makers just don't know how to put such products on the market... US computer brands may disappear over the next 20 years, just like what happened to US television brands."
