MSI aims to shop 150,000 to 200,000 notebooks in 2004. This year is the first year for volume shipments, after they started notebook manufacturing at the end of 2003. Initially they will focus on promoting sales in China, where they aim to sell around 20,000 notebooks in 2004.
MSI makes notebooks for IBM at a joint venture plant set up with LG Electronics (LGE) in Kunshan, Jiangsu Province (China). The plant has a monthly capacity of 30,000 units, the sources said.

The plant has room to expand and MSI does not have plans to outsource production to other manufacturers in the immediate future, the sources said, referring to a report that the company may outsource production to Compal Electronics after the notebook maker took control of MSI optical drive subsidiary Accesstek last week.
