Quanta seals Apple deal

Quanta Computer has reportedly landed a contract with Apple to manufacture new notebooks, according to the Chinese news outlet Commercial Times. The computer maker is said to be the exclusive MacBook producer in the second half of 2009, with an estimated production volume of 10 million units shipped to Apple by the end of the year.

The report corroborates earlier suggestions that Quanta was named as the supplier for the first aluminum-unibody notebooks introduced in October, along with the following models through 2009. The Taiwanese Government Information Office commented late last year that Quanta was expected to produce netbooks for both Sony and Apple, although the claim remains unconfirmed.

The reports appear to indicate the relationship between Apple and Quanta continues to develop, as MacBooks account for a larger portion of the manufacturer's capacity.. Previous suppliers included companies such as ASUS or Foxconn, although Quanta is the primary producer of the aluminum-unibody housings featured in the majority of MacBook offerings.
