According to sources in Taiwan, both Acer and Asustek are increasing the purchase price of their popular laptops.
News from Lianhe Daily according to Both Taiwanese Acer and Asustek plan to increase the purchase price of notebook computers and other products as soon as possible.
In the past year, the demand for laptops has increased dramatically, partly because many laptops have started working remotely full-time. Due to this trend, manufacturers’ PC shipments in 2020 have increased by 11% compared to 2019, which is an advantage of notebook computers because desktop sales are actually declining.
It is said that Acer and Asustek now want to take advantage of the substantial increase in demand, so they will increase the price of notebook computers in the second quarter of this year. Experts say that anyone who wants to buy an Acer or ASUS laptop today may want to buy it as soon as possible, because the price of these brands of laptops may soon rise by 5% to 10%. Experts say that this advice does apply to everyone. Experts will follow the example of Acer and Asus, and other manufacturers including HP, Dell and Lenovo will follow suit. And because of global chip shortages, demand will continue to be higher than supply-including the notebook computer market.
