    HP have to watch out their back, watching the competition, these guys from Acer have been working hard for years worldwide to spread their devices. Would be interesting to know how is the quality of them compared to HP portable computers. There is a lot of complaint here in South America about HP laptops hardware performance. Despite the fame of HP , users are starting to see alternatives like Sony, Acer and Toshiba.

    What is your point of view about this? Did you have a bad experience with HP computers or not at all?

    Acer predicts to surpass HP as world's top laptop vendor before 2011 | ZDNet

    Acer Chairman J.T. Wang has predicted that his company will become the world’s biggest mobile computer supplier by the end of 2010, after first quarter results surpassed that of Hewlett-Packard - the current leader.

    According to The Wall Street Journal, Acer shipped 9.49 million portable computers in Q1 2010, just narrowly beating HP’s 9.47 million units. That seems to have boosted the confidence level of Acer’s chairman through the roof, as the WSJ reported:

    “We have responded faster than our competitors to the demand in the market,” Mr. Wang said. “We are one of a very few that is able to respond to the market when demand stabilized in the latter part of the second quarter because we were prepared.”

    Notebook sales have more potential to rise later this year, especially with two major shopping seasons for computers still to come (back-to-school and the holiday season). Acer also wants to focus heavily on desktops and smartphones. All of this could maximize this growing empire - or spread the company too thin.

    Acer execs have been making some strong predictions lately. Earlier this year, Acer’s founder Stan Shih made the bold statement that American computer brands will be dead within two decades.

    Do you think this prediction has solid ground and will likely prove true by December 31, 2010? Or are Acer execs getting ahead of themselves and ignoring the still-fragile economic climate?

    It depends in how is going to work your smartphone with a laptop.

    Yes, but quality with a low cost means a lot to a final user.
