Default Asustek profits plummet

The dark satanic rumour mill has manufactured a hell on earth yarn which claims Asustek is expected to see revenues drop 20 percent in the first quarter of 2012, which is after a pretty grim end of 2011 result.

Digitimes is reporting that Asustek is suffering badly from its dependence on notebooks. The new quarter is normally pretty bad because the company will be hit by the Lunar New Year holidays.

A big problem for Asustek is the erratic European market.

Quoting "market watchers", Digitimes said that Asustek is poised to see a 10 percent decline in notebook shipments in the first quarter with its tablet PCs and Eee PCs also unlikely to grow either.

One of the only good bits in the Asustek news is that the outfit is expecting to do better out of selling its motherboards than it expected.

Things should start to pick up in the middle of the year when Intel starts selling its Ivy Bridge platform, when notebook demand is expected to rise.

By the time Windows 8 appears in the third quarter notebook shipments should grow.
