I guess the board of directors at Acer must be a bunch of idiots. Forget the fact they all have degrees (several are PhD's) and studied in the areas of business, engineering and marketing. Forget they all have extensive experience working for and directing the operations of large multi-billion dollar companies.
They need to do one thing to help Acer prosper:
LISTEN TO THE EXPERT'S AT TOM'S who clearly know more about the computer business than they do. Pay special attention to the Apple hater, as they are most intelligent of the lot.
