Notebook Vendors Slashing Orders with Intel

“I only need this many chips Paul….”

DigiTimes says notebooks aren’t flying off the shelves as fast as expected.

Leading notebook vendors, including Dell, Hewlett-Packard (HP), Acer and Asustek Computer, reportedly have slashed their orders for CPUs and chipsets already placed with Intel by 30-50% due to an unexpected rise in notebook inventory in the first quarter of this year, according to sources at Taiwan notebook makers.
