| Craig, of Bank of America, slashed his estimates for Dell and HP for this

| really want a hard drive in a machine that's going to be chucked around a
| lot? Well, at least you have the choice.

| Financial Times Deutschland on Monday.
| Lanci said the operating system was riddled with problems and gave users and
| businesses no reason to buy a new PC, according to the report. Taiwan-based
| Acer is the world's fourth-largest PC manufacturer, after HP, Dell and
| Lenovo.
| "The whole industry is disappointed with Windows Vista," Lanci said.
