Acer is fast gaining ground in the personal computer market thanks to its best-selling Acer Aspire One netbook.  In July of 2010, Acer ousted Dell from the second place spot in the global computer shipment rankings dropping Dell in third place.  However, Dell has since recovered, regaining its second place spot.



Meanwhile Acer continues to grapple with Apple -- a company that once bumped it to fourth place.  Speaking with Digitimes, Acer founder Stan Shih compared Apple's products to mutant viruses and remarked that a cure was incoming.  The report reads:

Acer founder Stan Shih, in a talks with reporters on September 8, commented that Apple's strong popularity is mainly due to its products such as iPad and iPhone, and these products are like mutant viruses, which are difficult to find a cure for in the short-term, but he believes that PC vendors will eventually find a way to isolate Apple and become immune.
