“Windows 8 itself is still not successful,” said Wong, whose company posted a 28 percent drop in fourth-quarter shipments from a year earlier. “The whole market didn’t come back to growth after the Windows 8 launch, that’s a simple way to judge if it is successful or not.”
It isn’t hard to see why people have taken a new fancy to Acer. The Acer C7 Chromebook, which can be purchased directly through the Google Play Store, offers quite the bang for its buck. Running $199.99 per unit and sports an 11.6-inch screen, dual-core processor, 2 GB of RAM and a 320 GB hard drive. It weighs in at only 3 pounds and is just over an inch thick. I know I have considered picking one or two up for my family since all they want is an internet based netbook.
Anyone out there pick up the Acer C7? What do you think of it?
