KUALA LUMPUR, 7 September 2016 – With just a simple donation of a usable pencil or pen, the public will stand a chance to take home an Acer Switch Alpha 12, the industry’s first liquid cooled 2-in-1 ultraslim convertible laptop!

From now until 30 September 2016, Acer Malaysia is running a campaign to collect pencils and pens for underprivileged students. Members of the public can bring usable pens or pencils to place into donation boxes at selected locations. In return for the good deed, the donors will be in the running to win a brand new Acer Switch Alpha 12 which has a vibrant 12-inch touch display with an impressive 2160 x 1440 resolution.

“Pens and pencils are basic education tools. This initiative is unique in its approach to help the underprivileged next generation to shape their futures and when they grow up, they can naturally switch to an award-winning Acer Switch Alpha 12 which works seamlessly with the Acer Active Pen for note taking, drawing and doodling,” said Chan Weng Hong, General Manager of Products, Sales & Marketing of Acer Sales & Services Sdn Bhd.

The collected pencils and pens will be channeled to underprivileged students in Malaysia. Acer Malaysia hopes to collect a total of 10,000 usable pencil and pens by the end of the campaign.

At the same time, Acer Malaysia is also running a series of roadshows at select Acer resellers across the country. Customers who visit these outlets and purchase any eligible products which are preloaded with Windows 10 and 6th Generation Intel Core i processors will be entitled to redeem a three-day-two-night hotel accommodation voucher worth RM800.
