Acer reportedly cuts CULV notebook orders

14-inch and 15-inch models plagued by low demand


Acer is
reportedly reducing orders for its recently introduced 14 and 15-inch CULV based notebooks due to low demand. Acer is currently selling 14 and 15-inch Timeline models, as well as a Travelmate series 14-incher based on the same platform.

Digitimes claims Wistron is now churning out some 200,000 Acer thin and lights a month, which is significantly under the expected 600,000 units. The report does not mention 13-inch Timeline and Travelmate models, so there's a good chance the smaller models are selling quite a bit better than the big ones.

This wouldn't come as much surprise, as 14 and 15-inch CULVs really don't make that much sense. They still weigh quite a bit, and have a sizable footprint in spite of the sub-1-inch waistline.
