Sales of Acer laptops are enjoying a resurgence at The Notebook Company, one of South Africa’s leading suppliers of notebooks and accessories – an occurrence that seems to be in synch with the launch of the company’s i5 dual core range.
Said Christopher Riley, managing director of The Notebook Company: “Acer seemed to have fallen off the radar screen some four years ago – well, certainly at our company, in terms of sales. But they appear to be back with a vengeance and are now giving the other ranges we offer a run for their money. This is since the company launched its i5 range.
“This might be a recovery strategy on their part, because the Acer Core i5 is hitting the market at $499 – and seems to be proving incredibly popular. It is currently giving our Apple range a run for its money,” said Riley.
