According to a report recently published by AU Optronics, the mini-notebook market is about to hit the fan. Sales of the tiny computers numbered in the “several hundred thousand” for the entirety of 2007, but if AU is to be believed, we could see exponential growth this year. The report predicts somewhere in the range of 8-10 million mini notebook sales for 2008. Whoa! Normally we’d pass this off as baseless speculation, but AU is one of the biggest suppliers of LCDs for mini notebooks, so we’re inclined to trust them a bit more than the average Joe. See a mini notebook in your future, BGR faithful?
