Acer auction revs up Starship

Acer auction revs up Starship

Acer has raised $2830 for Auckland’s Starship Children’s Hospital from a TradeMe charity auction of one of its limited edition Ferrari 1100 notebooks.

The vendor introduced just 19 units locally, with nine each allocated to distributors Ingram Micro and Dove. The other machine was used in the auction, which reached an exciting conclusion in the last 10 minutes as two users traded bids.

The successful bidder, listed on the site as Anne from Invercargill, also won a copy of Office Professional 2007.

Acer country manager Mark Dalton says the auction attracted 2500 page views and more than 100 bids, so provided good exposure for the company.

“We were happy with the success of it and would look at doing it again.” The 1100 features a 2.3GHz AMD Mobile Turion dual core processor, 2GB of DDR2 RAM and a 250GB hard drive. It runs Vista Ultimate and includes a Dolby Home Theatre sound system.

It also ships with a wireless mouse, VoIP phone and leather satchel, with a retail price of $4499.
