Acer joins Blu-ray camp

By on August 31, 2007, 4:19 PM
Acer has joined Sony, Dell, HP and Lenovo and others as the latest contributing member of the Blu-ray Disc Association, giving the Sony-backed format a clear lead when it comes to PC manufacturers support.

“The addition of Acer provides one more sign of the growing momentum behind Blu-ray Disc and, more importantly, is a significant advantage for consumers, as it further expands the already broad options available to consumers in the personal computer space,” said Victor Matsuda, chairman of the BDA’s Global Promotions Committee.
As part the agreement, Acer plans to fit high-end desktop and notebooks with Blu-ray drives. However, it remains unclear if the PC maker will exclusively support Blu-ray or if they will continue to support HD DVD drives as well, which can be found on a couple of its Aspire and Ferrari models. Regardless, it seems like the PC market is lop-siding in favor of Blu-ray.
