Acer America released a statement today touting its performance in the North American standalone LCD display market. According to market numbers courtesy of DisplaySearch, the company showed a 28% increase in shipments from Q3 to Q4 2005 and a 129% increase when comparing Q4 2005 to Q4 2004.

"With its worldwide strategy, aggressive pricing and channel approach and strong brand recognition, it seems well positioned to continue its strong growth in North America."





"Paying an extra $500 for a computer in this environment -- same piece of hardware -- paying $500 more to get a logo on it? I think that's a more challenging proposition for the average person than it used to be." -- Steve Ballmer
