Quanta Computer, the world’s largest contract maker of mobile computer, expects its shipments to increase by 5% to 10% in the fourth quarter of this year. It is unclear whether actual sales and profitability of Quanta is set to increase, as the boost of shipments could be achieved by dramatic price drops.

Regardless of the weakening and a host of doubts from institutional investors, Quanta is keeping its original projection at a 5% to 10% growth in its notebook PC shipments for the Q4 2008, due mainly to its shipments to Apple and Acer to drive sales, reports Taiwan Economic News.

Quanta will also reportedly get orders for five million Asus Eee Top nettops from Asustek Computer and is also likely to land orders to land switched orders from Dell and HP in 2009, and thus is projected to post a 16% growth in its yearly notebook PC supplies to 42.7 million units for whole the year to maintain its lead in the sector, claims the news agency.

Even though it is a good news for Quanta that it has managed to land orders amid economic slump, it is highly likely that smaller makers will actually suffer from declines in demand for personal computers.
