Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Just 10 days after we reported that Acer had secured a massive OEM deal from Dell, it appears that the Taiwanese firm has won yet more business. This time, IBM is in the frame, with the local Taiwanese press reporting that Acer Peripherals will sell over 200,000 high-end LCD monitors to Big Blue. The deal is worth over $300 million according to the reports, with shipments starting towards the end of this year and continuing through next year. Meanwhile, figures released by the top Taiwanese manufacturers suggest that companies on the island will manufacture nearly 50 per cent of world LCD production this year, accounting for 1.6 million units. ® See also TFT shortage to push notebook prices up Acer wins massive Dell deal
