Board: "make profits bigger, but without ever making quality products!"
CEO: "uhm... ok, give me a second... aaaand I quit"

No? I'd say it's close to the truth, haha.

Cheers! :p

They all freak out when they get introduced to the space lizards that actually control Acer.

Bring back E Machines and retire Acer brand names. you shot yourself in the foot by derailing an improved company. Anyone who bought a Good E Machines computer after 2004 could surely attest their improved quality and I myself would surely buy another. Still running my 4 year old ET 1331G-03W that I bought at Wal-Mart in Dec. 2009. Fully upgradeable. I miss E-Machines

You guys are kidding right? The Acer brand is way better than the crap HP has been putting out for the last 4 years. In the last 4 years Acer has really upped their game by making products that are very well built for the amount of money you can buy them at. Also wasnt it Asus that came out with the eee netbooks. BY the way Emachines are pretty much crap & yes I know Acer owns them as well. But Emachines is pretty much Acers bottom feeder line. Anyone that says different to what I said here has not owned or used an Acer laptop or desktop in the last few years.

"Bring back E Machines "

Holy crap they must be different in the USA, here in the UK e-machines are about the worst things you can get.
Awful PSU's that are usually not even enough to power what it comes with never mind anything you may add later

No issue with recent HP stuff here hardrock. Asus boards. Decent memory. Good procesors. Sturdy plastics in their most recent stuff. In 09-2011 HP had some issues with using really cheap plastics. Anything from 2012 feels nice. Especially their good APU stuff. The HPs I've gotten to use feel a lot more solid than the Toshiba or Acers I've held. Only reason I have a Toshiba laptop is I got an i3 for 50 dollars on craigslist. Main issue was the HDD failed.

I like my Sony's when I buy my laptops... Wouldn't even look at Acer. It won't be easy for them to overcome their cheap reputation....

I think Acer would do well to make a DOS machine.

Just sayin'.

There were only a couple of models I was fond of. I never had any trouble changing a PSU or throwing in a new graphics card or HDD. Everything always agreed. No fuss, load and go. The models I had were AMD based and they had room for improvements so I made them and made my experience a good one. It's all what you put into it.

The main complaint that I've heard about Acer products is the LCD screens. And that's what I found when I was researching the Acer Iconia tablet. I have an Acer monitor and it's held up very well over the last couple of years with no dead pixels.

Give me a tablet running x86 hardware and an unlocked uefi bootloader and i will have one in a heartbeat. Install debian testing and have a new laptop replacement.
