Acer has posted the highest level of growth among top PC makers, recording double digit growth despite a 1.4 per cent overall decline.

The latest preliminary data from IDC for the third quarter of 2014 showed Acer has improved on its year-on-year worldwide PC shipment with growth at 11.8 per cent.
