Acer slashes PC prices

Acer America slashes prices up to 20 percent on its line of AcerPower desktop PCs.

Acer America today announced price cuts of up to 20 percent on its line of AcerPower desktop PCs.

The price reductions will apply to machines configured to run business, graphics, and multimedia applications, in an effort that will make AcerPower PCs at least 5 percent cheaper than the similarly configured machines offered by its major competitors. The company will also pay incentives to resellers and distributors of $25 for each system sold through December, Acer said.

The company reduced the price of its multimedia business machine which includes a 166-MHz Pentium processor, 16MB of RAM, an 8X CD-ROM drive, a 2GB hard drive, a 256KB pipeline burst cache, and bundled software by nearly 9 percent to $2,160. Its Pentium 100 desktop with 8MB of RAM, 1.2GB IDE hard drive, 256KB pipeline burst cache, and bundled software now goes for $1,145, a 20 percent price reduction. The company has also reduced the price of its 133-MHz Pentium PC by 17 percent.
