Quanta Computer, the world’s largest contract maker of mobile computers, has reportedly reduced quotes for netbook building in order to keep its contracts with Acer Group, which recently decided to transfer production of certain Intel Atom-based Acer Aspire One models to Compal and Wistron.

Citing market sources, DigiTimes web-site claims that Acer may give about 70% of the orders for the second-generation Aspire One to Quanta, but the rest will be made by Compal and Wistron in order to diversify its risks. Earlier it was rumoured that Acer decided to transfer the vast majority of its Aspire One orders to Compal and Wistron.

The reduction of manufacturing prices by Quanta is a rather unsurprising move, considering the global financial downturn. The decision to reduce manufacturing prices may be made by other contract makers as well in order to keep their manufacturing capacities and engineering resources utilized.

Acer and Quanta did not comment on the news-story.
