DigiTimes heard Pegatron has received orders from Acer in mid-March to manufacture 100,000 units of 15" ultrabooks with fiberglass case per month:
The ultrabook features a fiberglass case and is expected to be launched in April-May, the sources indicated. Viewing that monthly shipments range between 30,000 and 50,000 units for most ultrabooks, Acer's planned monthly shipment volume is relatively large, the sources noted.
Pegatron aims to ship 18 million notebooks in 2012, and may upward adjust the target due to orders from Acer, the sources noted.
While most first-generation ultrabooks launched since the fourth quarter of 2011 have up to 13-inch screen-sizes, 14- and 15-inch are expected to be mainstream sizes for second-generation models launched beginning the second quarter, the sources said.
