Acer expects desktop shipments to grow on year

Acer expects its desktop shipments to see growth on year, as it gains customers from the DIY market, according to Scott Lin, president of Acer Taiwan.

Lin pointed out that the proportion of the DIY segment in the total desktop PC market dropped from 60-70% to around 50% in 2008, and the proportion continues to be eaten into by pre-built systems. Although Acer suffered an on-year drop in desktop shipments in the first quarter of 2009, Lin said he believes full-year shipments could be higher than the 8.13 million units shipped in 2008.
