The week-long roadshow hosted at Mid Valley Megamall, Kuala Lumpur, drew massive crowds thanks to mouth-watering deals on select Acer products including up to MYR1,000 off on devices and the Acer Day tradition—“flash sales.”
Last year, the Taiwanese PC maker chose Acer Day to launch the Predator Helios 300 Special Edition, Switch 7 Black Edition and Swift 7.
