Acer is keeping their fingers crossed that there will be a winner in the world of netbooks – what was once so promising seems to be in a decline, and the Taiwanese computer manufacturer has every intent to preserve its netbook sales simply by hoping that other companies fail first. This is a very dangerous tactic that Acer is applying, but it might be crazy enough to work. Assuming other competitors drop out of the picture, the remaining market might just turn to Acer and their netbooks, hence filling the vacuum in the process. Of course, this might also mean Acer will have to narrow down their model range, although paying more attention to the ones that ship out. Acer also claims that they will never quit the netbook market – let’s see if this makes it to the book of famous last words or not five years down the road.
