AOpen expects to deliver 500,000 mini-PCs this year, 20 times the 25,000 units sold in 2003. AOpen extended its production to notebook computers in early 2003 and then mini-PCs in October. Mini-PCs are mainly sold in the clone market, with global demand estimated at one million to 1.2 million units for this year. Apart from NEC CI ordering mini-PCs from Shuttle, no international PC brands have entered this field. AOpen plans to compete with Shuttle to be the top mini-PC maker. AOpen expects notebooks and mini-PCs to become the main source for its revenue growth this year. In March, AOpen will offer single-spindle, 12.1-inch, wide-screen Centrino (Dothan) notebooks.
