Acer: Microsoft Surface tablet is “negative” for PC market
Microsoft’s Surface tablet will have a “negative” impact on the PC market, Acer’s CEO has claimed.
In an interview with the Financial Times, JT Wang, said: "We have said [to Microsoft] think it over. Think twice.
The Microsoft Surface was announced in June and is expected to be released later this year. There will be two versions of the slate, the Surface, which will run on Windows RT and use an ARM CPU, and Surface Pro, which will run on Windows 8 Pro and use an Intel CPU.
The Surface will have a 10.6-inch HD Display, while the Surface Pro will come equipped with a Full HD Display. Microsoft's manufacturers, including Acer, are still in the dark about how much Microsoft plans on charging for the Surface, although experts believe the slate could cost up to £1,200.
