Acer also spoke about the shortage of components. In her case, the global shortage of microcircuits will slow down the pace of laptop production until at least the beginning of next year.
This will continue until the first or second quarter of next year. We have an acute shortage, and it’s not just that every family has a device that can be used – every person must have a device to work or study. We can now only meet 50% of the world’s demand.
The shortage situation affected Acer’s priorities. Rather than launching more gaming laptops, as many companies have done, Acer has focused on devices for the educational segment, where the company has a leading position.
