Asus to ship more Intel-based systems

Posted on Monday, Nov 26 2007 @ 09:31 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
DigiTimes reports Asus is planning to increase the portion of Intel-based systems to 90% of its notebook shipments, while dropping AMD-based systems from 30% to about 10%:
In line with Asustek's move, market sources commented that as AMD has not shown any obvious growth in its notebook platforms, the company's notebook market share might only reach 12-13% in 2008.

Asustek expects its notebook shipments in 2007 will increase to 7.2 million units, with branded notebooks occupying 4.2 million of the total, noted the company sources.

Asustek aims to become one of the top-five notebook vendors worldwide in 2010 and a top-three vendor in 2013, according to the company.
