Notebook makers face processor shortages
Shortages of mobile processors are currently plaguing notebook manufacturers, according to DigiTimes. As the market exits the back-to-school rush, notebook makers are already attempting to secure processor supply for the coming holiday season. However, Intel and AMD are reportedly facing unexpectedly high demand, and a number of notebook chips are in short supply as a result. Scarce chips include the Core Duos T2250 and T2050, which are found in a large number of low-end notebooks, as well as some other models in the Core 2 Duo and Celeron M lines. The shortages are severe enough that notebook manufacturers told DigiTimes they might have to resort to begging daily for new processor shipments.
