Laptop makers Acer and Asus are racing to bring competing ultraportable laptops to market in September.
Acer on Friday started shipping a US$329 Iconia Tab A100 tablet, which the company says is the first tablet with a 7-inch screen to run Android 3.2.
Acer and HP are set to swell the ranks of 7-inch tablets with new offerings. Compact versions may be the next tablet battleground.
HP makes third price cut in one week for its TouchPad tablet.
Rival manufacturers to Apple's iPad tablet could increase their market share by dropping prices, but they will need to fight hard.
Leaked images of the Acer Aspire 3951 show a laptop with a silver aluminum casing, large trackpad and chiclet keyboard. It's rumored to have a 13.3-inch display and Sandy Bridge chips.
It seems like most of us these days can share Groucho Marx's sentiment: “I started out with nothing and I have most of it left.” These great laptops won't strain your bank account.
Contrary to expectations, Asus and Acer will not be pricing their upcoming Ultrabook laptops under $1,000, according to reports.
