The re-increase in Corona cases in China at the end of last year has affected many industries. This is also likely to affect the launch of new PCs and laptops. The problems of suppliers of companies manufacturing personal computers and laptops in China also increased due to Corona. This will cause delays in shipments, which will impact the availability of products like new laptops. Contract manufacturing firms like Compal, Inventec, Quanta and Wistron did not suffer from shortages of components or workers. They had not asked their suppliers to increase production due to the availability of inventory and the expectation that demand would not be very high in the first quarter.
