Acer is the fourth-largest PC maker in the world, but it has been
hit hard by a decline in sales of desktop computers as more
consumers and businesses turn to tablets and other devices. The
company said Tuesday that its sales in the most recent quarter
were 92.15 billion Taiwan dollars, down 12 percent from a year
ago. It posted an after-tax loss of 13.12 billion Taiwan dollars,
or $446 million, for the quarter.
The post-PC era has another victim.
