Acer Blue

The world's third largest PC company has been running these ads for a new mystery product. Company president Gianfranco Lanci will unveil the "concept notebook" at a press event in New York later today. Judging by the media controls, it is clearly an entertainment-oriented laptop of some sort. But why it merits the Apple-like marketing treatment is anyone's guess.

    I haven't bought or recommended Acer; since they tried to charge me $50 to replace the Bad intel math chip

    Obviously they're thinking, if it works for Apple (and it clearly does), then why not give it a try?

    Can't really blame them.

    What? Are you implying that Apple is the only company allowed to advertise like so? If Apple helped build it's business on hype, what can't Acer?

      Where's it written that Apple has an exclusive right to hype marketing?
