Tech Data Adds New Acer Chromebook

Acer C7 Chromebook Enhances Education and Collaboration

CLEARWATER, Fla., April 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Expanding its
Client Systems offering, Tech Data Corporation (Nasdaq:TECD) today
announced the addition of the Acer C7 Chromebook. Available immediately
to Tech Data's channel of more than 60,000 resellers in the United
States, the Acer C7 Chromebook delivers the advanced capabilities and
increased online security, which solution providers in the education
vertical require.

"Tech Data is pleased to offer our solution providers advanced
education technology through Acer's Chromebook line," said Tiffany
Severance, director of Product Marketing, Client Systems at Tech Data
Corporation. "This addition is ideal for solution providers with
education customers because it is designed to significantly enhance
student learning and includes the latest software and protection
against online threats. The functionality and affordability of the Acer
C7 Chromebook is a great addition to our Client Systems offering."

Focus features of the Acer C7 Chromebook include:


-- Provides up to six hours of battery life
-- Provides online security for students and easy manageability for
administrators
-- Ideal for schools with multiple users logging on as well as one-to-one
initiatives
-- Mobility and multimedia for greater learning




"We are pleased that Tech Data recognizes the great value, security and
productivity that Acer Chromebooks provide to their education
customers," said Richard Black, director of Commercial Marketing, Acer
America. "The Acer C7 Chromebook delivers the advanced capabilities
that will help students excel, while reducing total cost of ownership
thanks to its manageability and security features."

The Acer C7 Chromebook is also eligible for Acer Educare, a unique
portfolio of service offerings that extends the life of technology in
the classroom and maximizes school's return on their IT investments.
Designed exclusively for education customers, Acer Educare targets the
specific needs of resource-constrained schools, delivering value-added
services like battery replacements for heavily used notebooks and
tablets, extended warranty and accidental damage coverage, and two-way
freight for depot repairs.

"Given that many of our students lack computers at home, it's critical
that we provide them with regular access to technology in the school
day," said Shawn Gerth, director of Schools, ACE Charter School. "We
purchased the Acer C7 Chromebook in order to increase the number of
students who can get regular access to technology and our effective
online learning solutions. Like most schools, we have a limited budget
and very lean IT support, so the Acer C7 Chromebook's extremely
affordable price and easy maintenance made them a perfect solution for
our needs."

The Acer C7 Chromebook is available immediately for purchase from Tech
Data. For more information on the Acer C7 Chromebook or Acer products,
