Acer leads growth in PC shipments

Records double digit growth despite overall industry decline

Acer has posted the highest level of growth among top PC makers, recording double digit growth despite a 1.4 per cent overall decline.

The latest preliminary data from IDC for the third quarter of 2014 showed Acer has improved on its year-on-year worldwide PC shipment with growth at 11.8 per cent.

This was in contrast to the overall industry decline of 1.4 per cent.

Quarter-on-quarter, Acer saw a 12.6 per cent rise, which also surpassed the industry average of 5.2 per cent.

In both YoY and quarter-on-quarter shipments, Acer was one of only two brands among the top 10 players, to accomplish double-digit growth, demonstrating the company’s steady progress.

The third quarter preliminary data also showed that Acer has performed well in the worldwide Commercial PC market.

For Commercial Total PC shipments, Acer attained 18.2 per cent growth year-on-year compared to the industry decline of 1.2 per cent. Quarter-on-quarter, it achieved 16.1 per cent growth.

Both rates represented the highest growth rates among the top 5 players.

Furthermore, in the Commercial Portable PC market, Acer saw 37 per cent year-on-year growth compared to the industry average of 0.2 per cent; QoQ, Acer achieved 15.8 per cent, exceeding the industry average of 9.4 per cent.

In both measurements, Acer demonstrated the fastest growth rates among the top 10 players.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
