More than expected!

Did you know that Acer has operations in so many places all around the globe? Here's a'll be surprised..

In Australia, its called Acer Computer Australia (ACA). It was established in 1990 and is currently Australia's 3rd largest personal computer vendor, behind Hewlett-Packard Australia and Dell Australia and New Zealand. Acer Computer Australia has Australia's highest overall market share in notebook PC and tablet PC sales. It is also Australia's leading PC vendor in government and education markets. Theres more!~

In India! Acer is Acer India, the vendor in segments like education, desktop computers and low profile notebooks, mainly for education purposes. The headquarters are in Bangalore, India. Acer India (Pvt) Ltd., was incorporated as a subsidiary of Acer Computer International Ltd. on 9th September 1999. And you would still think there has little technology?

In Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), 2005 Acer ranked among top 10 in 15 countries in that region...

And in the states (USA), Acer America Corporation, headquarters in California, is a member of the Acer Group. Acer's R&D, engineering, manufacturing and marketing operations in the United States and Canada are handled by Acer America Corporation.
In 1990, Acer acquired Altos Computer Systems, one of the top manufacturers of multi-user and networked Unix computer systems for commercial markets. In February 1997, Acer acquired Texas Instruments Mobile Computing business, including the award-winning TravelMate and Extensa notebook lines, making Acer the fourth-leading notebook manufacturer in the United States. Acer America's Canadian office, handles repair of Acer, Gateway, and E-Machine Notebooks and Desktop PCs for Eastern Canada. The repair facility in Texas handles many service oriented functions for North America. Acer owns many brands in the US.

Now enough official information...I dont have much to write on now, so I'll post what I have for the time being..

I thought this was interesting, for you computer lovers out there, this guy actually took apart his lap top, disassembled it, and put it back together, and it works..i might try it one day, but I may need some volunteers to pass me their laptops to try first...keke..

Looking more into Acer

Heres some more history of Acer I've found out today...

It was originally named Multitech, founded by Stan Shih, his wife Carolyn Yeh, and a group of five others in 1976. Multitech was eventually renamed Acer in 1987. It began with eleven employees . It was a distributor of electronic parts and a consultant in the use of microprocessor technologies, but it began to grow as a PC manufacturer. The main headquarters is in Hsinchu City, Taiwan.

In 2000, Acer spun off its manufacturing operation as Wistron Corporation, to focus itself on branding business. In deciding to support the sales through specific marketing activities, Acer grew worldwide.
In 2002, the pan Acer Group employed 39,000 people supporting dealers and distributors in more than 100 countries.
By 2005, Acer employed 7,800 people throughout the world while maintaining a global sales and service network.

In Europe, Acer mounted an association with the Ferrari Formula 1 Team. They were associated with Prost Grand Prix in 2001 and the BAR-Honda team in 2002. Their sponsorship of Prost resulted in buying the naming rights to the engine. Throughout the 2001 season the team were referred to as Prost-Acer. After Prost folded, Acer sponsored the BAR team. Acer then began to offer premium laptops and LCD monitors with Ferrari branding. It broadened its relationship with Ferrari by announcing it will sponsor the Formula 1 team until 2008. Acer recently introduced the Ferrari line of products to North America, and rolled out a Ferrari-branded line of PDA devices.

So Acer ranks as the world's No. 3 branded PC vendor behind the Hewlett Packard Company and Dell Inc, recently claiming the No.3 rank from Lenovo.

In September 2008, Acer surpassed HP and Dell over worldwide notebook shipment becoming No.1 in the world.

Is that enough evidence for you? Here's more info...Did you know that Acer has products such as..Desktops, Laptops, Netbooks, Servers, IT Services, Handhelds, Monitors, LCD TV, Video Projectors and even Digital Cameras? Cool huh?..

Here's the founder, 2nd from the left, Stan Shih, greeting Frank Hsieh, a presidential candidate from DPP before their meeting.

And this is their current Chairman J.T. Wang... So thats all the info I got for today...quite unexpectedly interesting...

The Latest Gaming Desktop!

The Acer Aspire Predator GT7700 Gaming Desktop PC is all a gamer could ask for! This is the latest and most innovative desktop I have found from Acer, I personally believe that this is very updated and interesting. Heres a list of details I have acquired...check it out..~

The Predator gaming PC from Acer has an extraordinary performance within a robotic-like exterior. The supporting arms of the front cover and claw-like optical drive doors give an aggressive, combat feel to the Predator, suggestive of a giant robot from box office movies.The inner power, with highly dynamic mechanisms and lighting effects are a visual delight techy gamers. This specific pc was also designed with practicality. The tool-less, swappable hard-drive slots simplify expansion, gaming peripherals can also be connected easily because the USB ports, audio jacks and card reader are located at the front. It also has Intel Core 2 Extreme or Core 2 Quad Processor, nVIDIA nFoce 780i SLi chipset, with up to 8GB of memory, and up to 1TB (terrabyte) of harddrive capacity! (What more would you want?).
You can get up to three nVIDIA GeForce 9800GTX graphic cards or two GeForece 8800 GT. There are other features like TV tuner, Blu-ray Super multi burner, WiFi 802.11b/g, integrated card reader and optional Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Platinum. This is the ultimate pc especially for those into media and techonology...Here's a simply pic of the exterior...

And here's a more detailed video on Youtube, more about this computer..

There's nothing else a person could ask for..
