Asustek president Jerry Shen has high hopes for the company's desktop PC lineup. DigiTimes writes the firm is taking a more aggressive stance in this market and hopes to hit shipments of four million desktops this year, double as much as in 2013. One of the reasons for ASUS' increased focuses on desktop PCs is the declining demand for notebooks.
Shen pointed out that China will be one of the company's major targets for the desktop business and Asustek will also design models for enterprise clients.

Some market watchers pointed out that Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) reportedly is the main manufacturer of Asustek's desktops and has already landed orders for one million units for the first half of the year, with the orders expected to help cover the company's lost desktop orders from Acer.
