Lenovo sees large growth in November notebook shipments, says paper
Dec 12, 2007
Lenovo's notebook shipments in November grew 200-250% compared to the monthly shipments recorded in the third quarter of this year, which correspondingly boosted shipments for Taiwan-based notebook ODMs, including Quanta Computer, Compal Electronics, Wistron and Inventec, in the fourth quarter, according to a Chinese-language Economic Daily News (EDN) report which cited sources at the Taiwan-based notebook makers.
Currently, Lenovo has only Wistron manufacturing its IBM ThinkPad notebooks in small volume, with the company itself producing the rest. Lenovo's consumer notebook orders are spread out between the four Taiwan ODMs, while the company's new notebook models for 2008 are expected to continue to be outsourced to them, noted the paper.
