ACS Industrial Services Comments on the Slow Growth of Touchscreen
Laptops 
Although the Touchscreen Offerings Made Available by New Microsoft
Laptop Products Are Widely Anticipated by the Tech Community, the
Consumer Demand Has Remained Slow; ACS Industrial Services Explains
How Windows 8 Touchscreen Laptops Will Become More Popular in Time 
HUNT VALLEY, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 12/10/12 --  The tech world has
been busy focusing on many new innovations in electronics this
holiday season, including attention on the new iPad Mini, the Wii U
and Windows 8 touch notebooks. Although Windows 8 touchscreen
notebooks are being designed and manufactured by many brands, a
recent article from The Wall Street Journal reveals that consumer
demand has remained "sluggish" for many of these products. Although
the purchasing outlook looks questionable to many electronics
industry authorities at this point in time, electronics repair
company ACS Industrial Services believes that with time, these
touchscreen products will soon catch on.  
According to the article, companies across the electronics industry
are not seeing as steadily increasing sales for Windows 8 touchscreen
products as they would hope. David Chang, CFO of Asustek Computer
Inc., tells The Wall Street Journal that "the demand ramp-up for
Windows 8 touch notebooks was slow and declined to give sales figures
for the Asustek Vivobook, even though it's the top-selling Windows 8
touch notebook on Best Buy's website."  
Although the demand may be slow for Vivobook, other leading
manufacturers, such as Acer, are closely watching the reception of
the device to get a sense of greater competition, and how its low
prices will impact consumer desire to purchase the touch notebook.
Although Acer remains uncertain about the reception of Windows 8,
those at ACS Industrial Services believe that it is simply a matter
of patience before the market will see an increased demand for such
products.  
ACS Industrial Services notes that new products paired with high
prices can create an atmosphere for slow consumer uptake. The Wall
Street Journal takes a similar stance and states, "Analysts say that
because of the high price of touch-controlled notebooks, the vast
majority of Windows 8 notebooks sold this year will not have a
touchscreen. The new operating system, with its large clickable
tiles, is optimized for use with a touchscreen."  
However, in a recent press statement ACS Industrial Services explains
how these devices will become more popular as the onslaught of
innovation subsides. The company concludes, "Windows 8 is a big shift
and many people are slow to adapt to such substantive platform
changes. However, Windows 8 is a much-needed change and will catch on
fairly quickly. The cost of the touchscreen laptops remains out of
reach for many would-be buyers and those that might consider it may
already have a tablet style touchscreen and feel the laptop is not
necessary yet. ACS Industrial Services predicts that necessity will
change as users become more comfortable with the touchscreen laptops
-- especially when the price begins to come down."
