Acer has today announced a 115% year-on-year growth in its notebook sales in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The company attributes the significant increase in sales to its pricing strategy and an increase in the variety of models available.

“The overall notebook market in the Middle East is growing in excess of 50% year-on-year, which is deeply satisfying, but Acer’s growth in Saudi Arabia’s notebook segment has exceeded our expectations. So far, we have recorded 115% growth on 2002,” said Krishna Murthy, general manager, Acer Computers Middle East.

Acer has released a string of new Celeron and Centrino-based notebooks over the past year and recently was the first firm in the Middle East to launch a Tablet PC based on the Intel Centrino mobile technology.

“Because of Acer’s strong drive to be first-to-market with groundbreaking products, we now have more than 10 different models of our company’s notebooks available in the Kingdom,” said Sunil Nair regional sales manager, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Acer Computers Middle East.

“By pushing ahead and achieving such high levels of growth in the notebook segment, we are increasing our market share in the Kingdom and capitalising on Saudi Arabia’s position at the cutting-edge of the Middle East’s technology market,” added Nair.
