“We’re excited to work again with Disney Consumer Products and Marvel to bring technology even closer to consumers through their favourite characters. The Pixar 30th Anniversary Toy Story special edition of the Acer Aspire V13 we launched in 2017 was a huge success. With the new series of notebooks, we hope to engage fans of the Avengers and the Marvel Cinematic Universe; as well as users who are looking for a versatile notebook for work, for entertainment, and for exceptional gaming experience”, “said Chandrahas Panigrahi, CMO and Consumer Business Head at Acer India.
