Acer keen to find Kiwi partner for XCs

Acer Computer is keen to get low-cost computers called XCs into the New Zealand market. XCs are low-cost PCs with a single application built for education, business, home use or other areas that don't need the power of a PC.

Acer is working with partners to design the XCs - what they consist of will depend on users' needs.

Acer is rolling out the XCs to Asian users later this year, but Acer Singapore-based chairman, president and CEO William Lu believes there will also be a market for them in other parts of the world.

Lu says Acer works with industry players (such as banks or telephone companies) to make an affordable and easy-to-use XC. He says it's important to work with a partner.

The XCs will range in price from about $US200 to $US800. The "X" part of the name represents the unknown, "because the market segments are under development".
