    Wow, somebody better tell HP, and Lenovo.
    Acer picked up more trouble than good business when they bought eMachines... that will come back to haunt them until they get basic reliability established.
    Acer reached this point by buying companies in major trouble, not by smart business sense, good engineering, and refined marketing principles.
    It is instructive to see that they haven't converted these businesses to the Acer brand name.
