ACi Announces Low Cost Laptop RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Consumers on shoe-string budgets, confused about whether to buy a desktop or laptop, now have reason to settle for the latter. Why? It's been raining low-cost laptops lately.

    After Asus and OLPC ($100 laptop), Allied Computers International (ACi) has now announced a low-cost compact laptop which comes for around Rs 15,000 in the Indian market.

    ACi entered the Indian market in 2004 with laptops priced as low as Rs 29,999. Back in 2006, the company launched a laptop for Rs 19,999.

    With the latest announcement, ACi plans to further widen its net. The new laptops are scheduled to be available by mid next year.

    They have an Aluminum body as against those with fiber or plastic, which is the real reason behind such low prices.

    ACi plans to increase production from the existing 10,000 to 100,000 laptops per year.

    And to make the laptops more easily available to consumers, the company plans to open its own showrooms across the country as also tie-up with supermarkets/malls/retail showroom franchises.
