A Taiwanese corporation established in 1976 Acer has quickly become one of the largest manufacturers of electronics products and components. The most important of their product offerings being laptops. They make a series of different designs including different products for different purposes.
The high-end Predator series being the one designed for enthusiastic gamers. It is arguably one of the best gaming laptop series in the world. They also make 2-in-1s, clamshells, convertibles and of course Chromebooks.

Acer has also dabbled into cloud computing, offering cloud services to companies across the world.
Acer sold off its manufacturing arm Wistron as well as the BenQ division in 2001 and concentrated only on their core designing and marketing of the finished products.
