The joint venture is now supplying both Lenovo and ThinkPad branded notebooks. Wistron is being hurt the most by Lenovo's move, as the maker was originally the ODM partner for Lenovo's ThinkPad notebooks. To minimize the impact, Wistron has turned its focus to non-notebook product lines such as server, handheld devices, recycling and sales services. The joint venture shipped 560,000 notebooks in 2012 and 6.4 million notebooks in 2013. For 2014, Shipments of Lenovo branded notebooks will reach 8.3 million units and ThinkPad 6.7 million.
