Quanta Sets New Record for Laptop Shipments

Taiwanese-based laptop manufacturer Quanta Computer has said that shipments and revenue for June were the highest it has ever seen. IDG reports that the laptop company, which counts Sony, Dell and HP among its customers, says the increased number of shipments probably has to do with an easing of component shortages and some customers placing July orders early.

Quanta shipped nearly 4.8 million laptops in June and earned NT$100.2 billion, or $3.1 billion, in revenue. The second best month for shipments and revenue was in April, when Quanta shipped 4.5 million notebook computers and posted revenue of NT$97.0 billion. Quanta says things are expected to take a dip in July before jumping back up in August.

"We expect July to slow down a little bit from June, but [shipments] should come back in August," the spokesperson told Network World.

    Don't confuse revenue with profit. The profit margins on these are pretty thin...
