Apple's Laptop Sales Could Be Up 39% Over 2005

Asustek Computer, the Taiwanese company that manufactures laptops for Apple, has said that its shipments of the new MacBook jumped from 100,000 units in April to 120,000 in June. According to DigiTimes, Apple could eventually deliver two million iBooks and MacBooks, as well as one million MacBook Pro notebooks, in 2006, which would put the company 39% ahead of the total number of laptops it shipped last year.

The Web site noted that another publication pegged Asustekis June MacBook shipment at 300,000 units, but the articleis authors doubted that figure. Asustek, of course, could not comment because of client confidentiality.
