Acer has released its latest consolidated financial report, which covers January 2021. It includes revenues that are its highest "for the same period" since 2013. This performance is based on solid year-on-year (YoY) growth for the OEM's gaming, creator-PC and Chromebook sectors.

Acer is an OEM as well-known for its Chromebooks as it is its gaming PCs. It has revealed that it made 23.5 billion Taiwanese dollars (TWD; or ~US$840 million) in terms of revenue by the end of January 2021. This figure represents an 8=year high for the firm for the same monthly report.

This latest consolidated figure has also grown 73.4% YoY. Acer has announced that this success is based on gains for its ultrabooks (313.5% YoY), as well as its gaming hardware (monitors included; 112.8% YoY). The company has also recently unleashed the ConceptD series, which incorporate an innovative "easel-like" form-factor pitched as ideal for content creators. This line's January 2021 takings have also shot up 247% YoY.

The OEM's Chromebook business has also grown by 361.4% compared to January 2019. This is not surprising really: demand for this category skyrocketed in 2020, allowing Acer to maintain a healthy fourth place worldwide in that market by the end of the year as its shipments grew by 43% compared to 2019.

As it has launched a number of new Chromebooks (mostly during the latest version of CES), Acer might see more of the same for the rest of its 2021. Besides that, it also has a variety of new Ryzen 5000- and/or RTX 3000-powered PCs to offer in the coming year.
