Quanta manufactures laptops for Dell, HP and Sony, amongst others. Quanta expects the number to drop somewhat for July, but pick up again in August. This astounding record number was due in part to an easing of a shortage of Intel's Annandale Core i3 and Core i5 laptop microprocessors. 2010 has also seen shortages of other laptop components such as LCD screens and DRAM memory. Manufacturers had been waiting for these processors to create thinner ("slimmer") laptops, with Intel's supply expected to catch-up to demand by the end of June 2010. Faster, Lighter, Cheaper!*</p>
