Acer 14-inch and 15.6-inch Aspire Timeline Notebooks: Low Demand

Acer_Aspire_Timeline

Acer‘s Aspire Timeline notebook PCs are about US$900. In a world where netbooks are all the rage at just $299 the 3x price difference might make a difference. I think it has. Acer has just reduced orders for its 14-inch and 15.6-inch Aspire Timeline notebook PCs due to lower-than-expected demand. Also consider that most decent 14-inch and 15-inch class notebook PCs are around $500. Acer originally expected a combined 600,000 per month run for the ultrathin notebooks but DigiTimes is reporting that Wistron, the OEM for both models, is at a much depressed level at just 200,000 units per month. The 13.3-inch Aspire Timeline must be meeting expectations.
