Acer is split into two businesses - one to make and sell its own brand machines, the other to supply IBM, Dell and other customers on a made-to-order basis.

The split is to avoid conflict between the two parts of the company.

Acer Co-President Simon Lin will run the business selling products to other computer makers. Wang Cheng-tang, the company's second co-president, will manage Acer's own brand business.

The split will happen over the next two years. ®
