Orders for notebook computers will rise by 50 per cent in 2001, according to leading notebook makers in Taiwan - including Quanta Computer, Compal Electronics and Arima Computer.

More cautious, but also optimistic, Inventec reckons it will ship 1.8 million units in 2001, up from 1.6 million this year.

Meanwhile, Twinhead International said that there is still room for demand for portables to grow. The company conducted its own research, which suggested global shipments of notebooks would reach 30 million units next year.

It said that, provided no new players entered the market, notebook manufacturers could look forward to good prospects over the next two to three years. Demand in the notebook sector was outpacing that for desktops, it said.

The prediction is in line with the latest research from IDC, which shows demand in the notebook sector growing significantly. The researchers found that while demand for PCs had slowed recently, more and more orders were coming in for notebooks. ®
