Taipei, Nov. 3 (CNA) Taiwanese computer vendor Acer Inc. was the top seller of ultra-portable laptops in the first nine months of 2020 in the domestic market, taking a market share of nearly 30 percent, a global survey found.

In the first three quarters of the year, Acer beat out Apple Inc. by about 2 percentage point in the Taiwan market for ultra-portable laptops — those that are thinner than 18 millimeters, according to the recent survey by a global research firm that asked not to be named.

On Tuesday, Acer unveiled several new products in Taiwan, such as its 14-inch Swift 5 ultra-thin & lightweight laptop lineup, a new luxury 1.2-kg Porsche Design Acer Book RS laptop, and the new Enduro series of rugged laptops and tablets.
