Asustek Eee PC shipments fail expectations

Acer Taiwan president Scott Lin is confident the company's Aspire one will enjoy a strong sales record despite recent news that Asustek Computer's Eee PC sales failed to meet expectations sparking concerns for the netbook market.

Asustek announced that it shipped 1.7 million of Eee PCs in the first half of 2008, 300,000 less than its original forecast. Some industry watchers explained the shortfall to delayed shipments due to the shortage of Intel Atom processors. Despite the present component shortages and gloomy economy, Asustek still aims to ship five million Eee PCs in 2008, according to company sources.
