HP and Acer see 3-6 percent of laptop shipments affected by 6-series defect

Posted on Thursday, February 10 2011 @ 00:00:14 CET by

DigiTimes heard from anonymous sources that HP and Acer internally expect 5-6 percent and 3-4 percent, respectively, of their total laptop shipments in Q1 2011 will be affected by the flaw in Intel's 6-series chipsets.
In response to the incident, HP has moved to increase its shipment proportion of AMD-based models and models with Intel's previous-generation platform, while Acer has announced it will recall notebooks with defective chips and Asustek has also made a recall to retail channels worldwide.

HP has internally also decided to postpone shipments of new models that were originally set to ship in March, to April with the expectation of seeing 200,000-400,000 units of its total shipments affected in February and March, the sources noted.

Acer has recalled three notebooks, the Aspire 8950G, 5950G and 4750G, and two desktops, the Predator G3600 and Aspire M3920.
