Acer: iPad And MacBook Air Are Nothing But A Passing Fad

As part of a publicity stunt, Acer founder Stan Shih attempted to ignite controversy by claiming that both the iPad (and the entire tablet market) and the thin-and-light computer market are nothing more than a passing fad.

Apparently, Shih thinks that the “real” computer market is still traditional desktop and laptop PCs. Whether or not Shih actually believes this nonsense, I can’t help but think that this is Acer’s way of trying to console themselves after utterly failing in the tablet market and failing to produce a popular thin-and-light notebook.

Judging by Apple impressive continuing sales of the iPad 2, and the ever-growing sales figures that Apple has been seeing from the MacBook Air for nearly the past 3 years (since its 2008 introduction), tablets and light, portable notebooks aren’t going to go anywhere any time soon.

Hey Mr. Shih – why don’t you spend less time whining about your failure and more time actually trying to innovate and compete?

    Acer is a bad laptop builder and says that, just “lol”

    Well said, Acer are just trying to make up excuses because they’re failing so badly in those markets. Acer are being left in the dust.
