Acer Sees Profits at the End of a Bleak 2011

Posted by at 10:52 am on November 30, 2011

Acer saw rare optimism for performance this year after company President Jim Wong said the company would return to profit for the fall. The company’s successive losses for the past six months were clearing up now that it had finished selling off the “abnormalities” of unsold notebooks. The company is still expected to be in the red for 2011.

Wong reiterated expectations that Acer would ship 250,000 to 350,000 units of the Aspire S3 ultrabook in the fall. The thin-and-light systems wouldn’t be affected by ongoing hard drive shortages, he said, because of the choices of storage. Although Acer uses rotating storage in tandem with a solid-state drive, its traditional disks are made in China, not flood-stricken Thailand.
