The annual Acer Day is back and this time Acer has brought music to our ears as it was announced 2 weeks ago, with fabulous prices on their products! As they are also launching three special modes, they have unveiled them with a vibrant event starring performances by Amoi-Amoi and Fuying & Sam. The 3 special models are the Predator Helios 300 Special Edition which features upgraded specs in its distinctive white chassis; the world’s thinnest laptop with powerful performance, the new Acer Swift 7; and the world’s first fan-less 2-in-1 laptop with discrete graphics, Acer Switch 7 Black Edition.
“The inaugural Acer Day launched last year was well received by the public. It generated more than seven million clicks on the campaign video across social networking sites, and over 2,500,000 page views on the microsite. As we continue to seek ways to engage with customers, we will continue to invest in Acer Day while looking to broaden its scope in the hope that Acer Day will become the most representative annual campaign.” recounted Acer Pan Asia Pacific President Andrew Hou.
