Lin noted that the company has already shipped around 2,000 ultra-thin notebooks in Taiwan since the beginning of of May and current stocks are completely sold out. Acer plans to increase monthly shipments to 5,000 units by the end of the month, and will continue to raise volumes beyond June.
Although ultra-thin notebooks are expected to devour part of the netbook and traditional notebook markets, Lin believes traditional notebooks will still account for around 50-60% of total notebook shipments in the future, while ultra-thin notebooks will stand at 20-30%, and netbooks at 20%.
