Quanta Computer set a new laptop shipment record in June, world's largest contract notebook maker said shipments hit 4.8 million last month, about 300 million more than its previous record which was achieved in April.
The Taiwanese company, which counts Sony, Dell and Hewlett-Packard among its customers, attributed the records to a few factors, including the easing of some component shortages and because some customers placed orders early in June that might normally have been placed in July.
"We expect July to slow down a little bit from June, but [shipments] should come back in August," a Quanta representative said.
Quanta shipped 4.8 million laptops in June and took in NT$100.2 billion (US$3.1 billion) in revenue, the company said. Its previous record for a single month was in April, when Quanta shipped 4.5 million notebook computers and posted revenue of NT$97.0 billion.
