Boot Camp feature for Friday, April 17, 2009

A new assault from Acer. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology Boot Camp, a report on gadgets and gear. Acer....which also owns the Gateway and Emachine brands ....has announced twenty new netbooks, notebooks and desktop PCs....aimed at luring more consumers to buy even in a tough economy. What's really new here... affordable notebooks designed with all day battery life...for one. Product marketing manager Ray Sawall...

"We are delivering a product that gets nine plus hours of battery life, is very thin and light at prices that are very mainstream. Starting at 699 and going above."

The high end...is at 899. Acer has also unveiled new all in one PCs...with touch screens....and a new series of those little netbooks...


"We're driving down size and weight without increasing cost. "


The new models begin arriving next month starting at under three hundred dollars. You can find us at BootCamp.com. I'm Fred Fishkin.
