Acer expects to ship 6 million low-cost PCs in 2H 2008

By Justin Mann on
Asustek's stunning success with the Eee PC has left them and the competition wanting for more. For the second half of this year, one of their newer competitors, Acer, is expecting a huge boost in sales and shipment of their own low-cost PCs, with a total of six million units planned for deployment. They are estimating around one million units with a 12.1 display and a behemoth 5.5 million units using the 8.9 display.

They are in the same price bracket that Asus is in, the $300-450 mark, and they have a lot of experience in the mobile world already as one of the top-tier notebook manufacturers around. They definitely have a better chance of competing in this particular market than some other companies.
