PC Vendors Cut Orders By 50%

According to reports several of the top PC vendors including Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Acer and Asustek Computer are expected to reduce their PC order volumes by as much as 50% in the first quarter of 2009.

Citing sources at component makers and other channel vendors DigiTimes claims HP is planning to cut orders by around 50%, Dell 50-60%, and Acer and Asustek 40-50% each.

The sources pointed out that they originally thought that HP and Dell were trying to lower their costs by combining orders together and outsourcing to just a few makers, but after confirming with other channel sources, it became clear that the two vendors have actually significantly reduced their orders.

Although PC and notebook orders will see a large drop in the first quarter of 2009, orders for netbooks and LED notebooks are still seeing a surge growth.
