Acer Timeline hit by panel production problems

Acer confirmed it's having problems to get sufficient display panels for its new ultrathin Aspire Timeline CULV notebook:
Acer chairman JT Wang has confirmed that the company's new Timeline ultra-thin notebook product line is facing a panel shortage.

However, Wang pointed out that Acer has already found a new panel supplier and the shortage will be solved soon. Only three models out of a planned ten will see delays, of around eight days, due to low panel yields, so there will not be any significant affect on shipment volumes.
