Hmm, lullig: bij onze overzeese vrienden zijn zaterdag 1440 splinternieuwe Compaq notebooks kwijt geraakt. Gevolg: 5% van de verkoop naar de klote...
The huge-load of Compaq notebooks stolen this weekend represented around five percent of the vendor's anticipated UK quarterly laptop sales.
According to IDC, Compaq sold around 21,000 notebooks in Q2, and 31,000 in Q1 this year. Which means the 1,440 base units stolen on Saturday could put a dent in shipping. In all, 810 Compaq Armada 1500Cs and 630 Armada 1750s were nabbed in transit, Cheshire Police said this morning.
Andy Brown, IDC analyst, said it would not have a huge effect on Compaq supply. However, he warned that the most serious aspect of the theft involved the TFT screens. These screens are like gold dust at the moment due to an international industry shortage.
