Lenovo have revealed that their notebook shipments grew by 200-250 per cent in November when compared with the monthly shipments recorded in the third quarter. This in turn has boosted shipments for Quanta Computer, Compal Electronics, Wistron and Inventec.
Acer has also reported a better than predicted performance for November. The Taiwanese vendor has announced non-consolidated revenues of NT$30.99 billion (£467.9 million), which is a decrease of 24.4% on month, but an increase of 3.5 per cent on year.
Notebook shipments are going strong, and look set to increase further in the New Year, with the Taiwan-based Topology Research Institute predicting a record breaking 116 million shipments throughout 2008.
